Friday February 17 - February 22, 2023 

There are so many things that make the island of Curaçao special!   It's in the air, all around you, everywhere you go.  You can't quite explain it, but it takes hold of you and doesn't let go.  Whether it's the year-round 84º temperature, the seemingly endless activities, or the pride and the passion of the people, you feel the spirit of the island from the moment you arrive!


Curaçao is special to everyone who visits and is something you have to feel for yourself!  One thing is sure... whatever it is, you'll never forget it! 

NOTE:  Curaçao is located in the Southern Caribbean, outside the hurricane belt, about 90 miles north of Venezuela. It is an autonomous country within the Royal Dutch Kingdom along with its sister islands, Aruba and Bonaire.
