Vacationing on the lovely island of Curacao

The Caribbean is a wonderful place, the sea, the sand, the climate, it’s just glorious. One of my favorite islands to visit, which I believe doesn’t get enough credit, is Curacao.

Curacao is a Dutch island off the north coast of South America. It’s deep south in the Caribbean waters, and one of the ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao). The water is warm, the cuisine is heavenly, the people are so friendly, and the way of life moves slow and serene. I’ve gotta go back.

I visited Curacao with friends a couple of years back during Carnaval, I can’t wait to take the kids! Until then, I’ll bask in the sunshine and marvel at the ocean in these photos we took.

We hope you enjoy these photos of Curacao Island, it was such a wonderful trip and we truly can’t wait to return.

Path to the ocean from the Hyatt Hotel in Curacao

We stayed at the Hyatt Hotel in Curacao (soon to be a Sandals Resort). It is a very cute property that is right on the ocean. Some of the photos are from the resort, like the walking path to the beach above and the kayaks below.

Wildlife roams freely here on the island. This iguana was perched on the rocks near the beach.

Where do the locals eat in Willemstad?

If you are looking for a taste of the local food in Curacao, look no further than the Plasa Bieu old market and food hall. It is like an open-air food market that has lots of local vendors selling food items you must try!
