Top 5 Reasons to Visit Curacao | Dive into the HEART of the Caribbean | Dive Curaçao Vlog
Many refer to the group of islands off the coast of Venezuela - Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao - as the ABC Islands. But often, Aruba and Bonaire eclipse the C, Curaçao. No one is sure how this curious island got its name, but one theory is that it comes from the Portuguese word that means heart, since the island was the center of commerce in the seventeenth century. Although the name has remained, Portuguese is only one of the languages that you will hear on the island of Curacao: Papiamento, Dutch, English and Spanish are the others.
As soon as the plane lands on the islands dry, flat land you will realize that Curacao is not a typical Caribbean island. Dive in for the top 5 reasons that you need to visit this vibrant island, to Feel it for Yourself.
# 1: It's not your typical Caribbean island
Although the history of Curacao has many different European influences, the island has been part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands since it was colonized by the Dutch. You will notice it even before leaving the airport: blue and white porcelain dishes and delicious Dutch snacks are sold throughout the island as souvenirs, and the capital, Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, features a recognizable Dutch architecture of gabled roofs and curved eaves.
Curacao has a population of approximately 160,000 inhabitants and a modern infrastructure, including the highest bridge and the largest shipping port in the Caribbean. Many natives of the islands take advantage of their European passport and travel throughout Europe and attend university in Holland if they can. You will also see many Dutch working, living or vacationing on the island.
Like other Caribbean islands, Curacao has a mega cruise terminal, but you won't feel like it's in Disneyland wherever you go. The pier is adjacent to the historic Rif Fort and the Renaissance Mall, which offers cruise ship passengers an easy option to experience the history of Curacao.
# 2: The island is a big party
Any night of the week and at any time of the year, you can find some kind of nightlife in Curacao. Nightlife is one of the best things to do in Curacao, with annual festivals such as Carnival and King's Day among the biggest and funniest.
Music festivals arrive on the island frequently, and many of the beaches such as Mambo Beach that have become popular sunset gathering areas where happy hours are offered at the bars and restaurants including DJs and live music. There are also many discrete lounges and bars, especially in the historic Pietermaai District.
# 3: It has been a gastronomic city of fashion for decades
Curacao has a lot to offer when it comes to your culinary experience. The restaurants on Curacao have a variety of local dishes, but the international cuisine is also well represented on the island.
Dive In & Taste it for Yourself... because eating is an important part of Antillean culture, and it would be a shame if you didn't enjoy it. One of the nicest things about vacation is discovering new dishes from the local kitchen. Lunch is just as important on Curacao as dinner. There are plenty of restaurants and eateries on Curacao, but where is the best place to go? (link at bottom)
# 4: Any type of traveler will love it
Cruises, families of all ages, divers, adventure travelers, couples and groups of friends can find things to do in Curacao, and accommodation offers range from five star resorts to hostels.
There is something for everyone with activities ranging from restaurants to shopping, street parties and beach clubs. In addition, with more 70 pristine dive sites and 40 beautiful beaches on the island, you will have no trouble finding your own personal paradise.
# 5: is the diver's paradise
The fringing reefs of Curaçao are some of the most healthy and bio-diverse in the entire Caribbean region, so it is no surprise that this Dutch Caribbean island is one of the Top 10 dive and vacation destinations in the World. Whether you are a snorkeler, a novice diver or if you have an open water certificate, you will find a perfect dive site for your level.
The Tugboat wreck, as an example, is a dive site located in only five meters of water and is feasible as a diver or snorkeler; You can also do a dive along the wall there and explore an underwater cliff. Other major dive sites include Director's Bay, the Superior Producer, Klein Curaçao, Mushroom Forest and of course, an essential experience needs to be mentioned, The Blue Room. Local favorites are Director’s Bay and Watamula.
Under the water and depending on the time of year, you will see an incredible array of life and colour which will include sea turtles, rays, dolphins, sharks, eels, lionfish and species of fish that are exclusive to Curacao.
Now, dive into the HEART of the Dutch Caribbean, discover Curaçao and Feel it for Yourself!

Traveling to Curaçao was an amazing experience considering my short amount of time there. Not only did I accomplish a few dreams on the island but I got a great taste of the local culture through its music, people, and food / cuisine. I arrived on a Saturday night through Insel Air non stop from the states meeting up with a good friend I had met through CouchSurfing. He was awesome enough to show me around south of Willemstad for dinner from a food truck. He also took me to the north next morning to join me on a strenuous and amazing hike on Christoffelberg. This hike goes from flat to step rocky incline in one hour. Atop you get amazing 360 views of both Curaçao and the Caribbean sea. Later we hiked back down to drive around the north to see places such as Westpunt, Kenepa Beach or Knip Beach, Flamingos in Jan Kok, and later a Beach Party at Mambo Beach.
The second full day, I took advantage of an all day sail tour with the Jonalisa through Bounty Adventure tours. We set sail from Caracasbaai on a rough sea journey to the island of Klein Curaçao, an uninhabited island south east of Curaçao. Here lies a picturesque blue water beautiful sand beach as well as an abandoned lighthouse in the center of the island. In contrast to this, the opposite side lies a shipwreck and washed up sailboat on its rocky rough coast with waves smacking the shore. Later that night I took advantage of dinner in Punda for a nice dinner.
Last day, I took advantage of walking around Punda in Willemstad were the center of attractions are. I also crossed the Juliana Bridge to capture pictures and video of Otrobanda, the opposite side to see the old pastel colored buildings and way of life. From there, I set off to the airport en route to its neighboring island, Aruba. So my trip as always was not so much just a vacation, It was a trip to kill my curiosity of the unique melting pot of Dutch, Creole, and Spanish culture that lies on this fairly new country. Especially having the ability to see the unique difference in cultures between Aruba and Curacao.

Curaçao - Island Reflections 10 Artists by Felix de Rooy & Kirk Claes
Island Reflections of 10 Artists
Curaçao is an island in the southern Caribbean Sea, off the Venezuelan coast. The Country of Curaçao, which includes the main island plus the small, uninhabited island of Klein Curaçao, is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
Get to know the many talented Curacao artists and painters. Our accomplished artists include photographers, sculptors, and designers. You can visit several of these local artists at their ateliers by making appointments directly or through the local artist association artevishon.
Escape to the Caribbean's hidden treasure. Fall in love with Curacao's world-class diving and beaches, invigorating outdoor adventure, and welcoming culture.
What makes Curacao special among Caribbean islands? Authenticity. For centuries, we have forged a vibrant and rich culture rooted in history and hospitality. Our heritage is both European and African -- representing more than 50 nationalities. We speak Dutch, Spanish, and English -- as well as a local language, Papiamentu, a colorful Creole dialect.
Exploring Undiscovered Curaçao
The best part of exploring Curaçao is that it feels undiscovered, like an exclusive hideaway. One of the tiny ABC Islands -- Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao -- this secluded slice of paradise is the Caribbean's best-kept secret. The Curacao tourism board wants to help you uncover its many wonders. There are no tourist traps here. Locals and visitors mingle in harmony throughout the island. Relax and unwind amidst Curacaoäns working, playing, and enjoying life to its fullest -- the same as they have done for generations. We love to socialize, so don't be surprised if someone waves and tosses a friendly Bon Bini! (Welcome!) or Kon ta bai? (How's it going?) your way. What are you waiting for?

????The Dangers of Scuba Diving Gordon's Rock in the Galapagos ????????Santa Cruz Island Ecuador
If you're looking to find large schools Hammer-Head sharks while visiting the Galapagos Islands, Gordon's Rock off of Isla Santa Cruz is the one where you are pretty much guaranteed to find them.
Large powerful hammer-heads are drawn like magnets to the strong currents produced by this semi-submerged crater hidden just beneath the surface. The upward swells of water from deep below provide adequate food for all of these large schools of apex predators.
Unfortunately for us, these conditions are not recommended for novice divers, and on the best of days you will quickly find yourself scrambling for something to hold onto on the rocks to keep you from being blown into the deep-blue abyss that surrounds you.
It was a rocky start for Fil who quickly learned that his gear may not be up to par with a sticky respirator and a strap which let go on his mask he went to replace. The gang forged along to find all sorts of creatures hidden along the rocks, including: massive moray eels, urchins, sea turtles, octopus, eagle-rays, stingrays, and yes, we found Hammer-Head sharks.
Making your safety-stop is no easy task, as this means returning near the surface where the ocean quickly reminds you how truly small you are. Everyone scrambles for chunk of sharp volcanic rock to hold onto near the surface, and try not to get blown away. After 5 minutes waiting, let go of the rock and the upward swells from the ocean sees your returned to the surface promptly.
