My husband and I recently visited the amazing Dutch island of Curacao. It is a southern Caribbean island vibrant with Colonial architecture, and known for Dutch Creole cuisine. Curacao, called the Ruby of the Caribbean, has a population of about a hundred and sixty thousand people. The capital is Willemstad, the government is autonomous with the Netherlands, and it is listed on the UNESCO world heritage site. Today one can find more than 55 different nationalities that include its African heritage, a European flavor, and a well-established Jewish culture. Most of the residents speak a number of languages: Papiamento, the native language, Dutch, English, and Spanish.
Curacao has the honor of being the first Caribbean destination to be independently mapped for Google Street View. Watch for this new street view option and also visit the Curacao Tourist Board or the Curacao Hospitality and Tourism Association, or check this travel Curacao Travel Guide.
We stayed at the lovely Baoase Luxury Resort, the only Five Star Plus luxury resort on Curacao.
