Desired for its unique blend of cultures and colorful architecture, Curaçao locals embrace Dutch culture, architecture, and flavors. With stable, year-round temperatures, there is no shoulder season in Curaçao. Any time of year, the doors will be open, and the waters are warm. Curaçao is also home to seventy dive sites and exotic marine ecosystems, thirty-five white sandy beaches, each with a personality and flair of its own.
The streets of the capital city of Willemstad (A UNESCO World Heritage Site), are colorful Dutch-inspired with one-of-a-kind murals and street art, representative of the warm island culture. With a slew of year-round events, you just might stumble into one of Curaçao’s classic festivals celebrating the island’s history and culture with good music and better company. Here, you’ll taste Curaçao’s most popular dishes- Keshi Yena, a large ball of cheese stuffed with spiced meat, or Oliebollen, the Dutch doughnut.
With Sandals Royal Curaçao, Sandals Resorts International’s latest addition, the company’s first venture into Curaçao, adds another reason to make room in your passport for an exciting Caribbean destination.
