With neighbouring islands such as Aruba and Bonaire, Caribbean island Curaçao is the oft-overlooked little sister of the Leeward Antilles, otherwise known as the ABC islands. Its capital Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage City, with its colonial architecture, floating market and bustling nightlife aren’t the only reasons warranting Curaçao its long-overdue spotlight. Curaçao’s beaches, both the touristy ones in Jan Thiel and the rustic beaches on the west side make for a relaxing getaway. What makes Curaçao especially unique, however, is its richly diverse culture with four native languages spoken on the island (Dutch, Papiamento, English and Spanish). When you’re deciding on the aesthetic for vacation – South American warmth, European style, African history and laid-back Caribbean vibes – Curaçao has it all.
