Life is just better at the beach. Discover Curaçao.

Home to more than 35 captivating beaches, a diverse heritage spanning 55 different cultures, a ‘live and let live’ attitude and unrivaled European architecture, Curaçao remains one of the most exceptional islands in the Caribbean.

The island was recently selected as one of USA Today’s 10 Best Caribbean destinations. Its capital city, Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage site, features an iconic colorful backdrop, as well as an intriguing roster of museums, monuments, flavorful restaurants and shopping.

Curaçao’s natural beauty, pristine diving, and snorkeling sites are a favorite with divers and adventure seekers, while its beaches and idyllic weather, situated on the outer fringes of the Hurricane Belt, have won it further accolade and recognition.

Easily accessible for North American travelers, Curaçao offers daily flights from Miami via American Airlines, weekly flights from Charlotte via American Airlines, twice-weekly direct flights from New York via JetBlue, as well as weekly service from Toronto and seasonal service from Montreal.
