Curacao is the “C” in the famous ABC Islands, the group of Caribbean islands that are located outside the traditional hurricane belt, making them an excellent choice for a vacation any time of year. Although Curacao is small in land mass, there’s plenty to see and do on the island—including nearly 20 beaches.
Off the coast, you’ll find world-class diving and snorkeling. On land, you can explore the Hato Caves, visit the turtles at Shete Boka National Park, or check out historic Willemstad (the main city and a UNESCO-designated historic area).
Where is it? Southern Caribbean. Fly to Curacao International Airport (check prices).
Where to Stay? At Lions Dive and Beach Resort, which has a private beach, a sports pool, and fitness programs.
What Else Should I Know? Curacao throws a massive Carnival celebration—so if you like masquerades and parties, try and time your visit during the season (which usually starts in January).
Who’s it For? Anyone who’s sick of winter!
