Curaçao sunindex: the best time to travel to Curaçao
Curacao is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. However, during the winter it is much warmer and sunnier here than in the Netherlands. On Curacao you can find beautiful bays with beautiful beaches, pleasant hotels and an enjoyable Caribbean atmosphere. You can experience here what the Netherlands would look like if it were situated in the Caribbean. The atmosphere here is much more laid-back than in the Netherlands. However, distinct Dutch elements can be spotted everywhere such as architecture, traditions, holidays, food and routines. On Curacao you really get the feeling of a society instead of a long coast with only hotels like you can find on Aruba. The beaches and hotels can be found along the entire south coast causing it to feel much less massive.
