Curaçao, the island where we all want to be
Home of more than 35 captivating beaches, the island has a cultural wealth that includes more than 55 different cultures, living together under a “live and let live” philosophy. Its architecture combines Caribbean essentials with unique European colorful facades.
Curaçao is one of the Caribbean islands that, along with Bonaire and Aruba, used to be the Netherland Antilles. The country is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. However, it is politically independent. The country has a population close to 150.000 inhabitants within an area of 444 sq. kilometers. With a privileged position in the peripheral hurricane zone, the island is able to receive visitors all year round. Thanks to this, its visible care and order present everywhere in the island, its white sand powder beaches and mellow weather, it has become a world class destination.
During 2017, Willemstad, its capital, is celebrating 20 years of having been included as part of UNESCO World Heritage. This has enhanced Curaçao’s position as a cultural and gourmet destination, where travelers can enjoy cuisine with Latin-American, Asian and European fusions.
Curacao’s rich history has allowed tourists from every corner of the world to fully enjoy the island. Its warm people, no Visa requirements for Colombians and the willingness to receive travelers from all over the world, make travelling to Curaçao easy. It’s easy to communicate with locals as most speak fluently English, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Dutch, and of course, its local language Papiamento.
