This picture shows in my opinion the very heart and soul of Curacao. A tropical island where people live their dreams by making a decent and honest living. The result? Peace, Love and Freedom!

In the end that's all we need, right? Think about it. Just ponder that thought for a while. Why would you work your butt off 260 days a year so you can have a sweet Caribbean vacation every now and then? Huh? Doesn't make much sense, does it? Exactly! That's the exact reason why thousands of Dutch people said farewell to Holland and Aloha to Curacao.

The Caribbean people seize each and every day. Dance like no one is watching. YES they do!  The Caribbean island of Curacao is a place where today is never a repeat of yesterday and wealth is measured in time not money.

Common misspellings..

Curacao is commonly misspelled as Cu-ra-coa. The name Curacao is derived from the Portuguese word for the heart Coração. This island has always been considered the centre of trade in America, which explains the word heart “Cura-coa”. A different theory states that the island was named by the Spanish conquerors. The Spanish word Corazon, referring to the island’ shape eventually led to the term Curacao.

Anyways, I’m not here to give the Spanish nor the Portuguese credit for the islands’ name.  But since you’ve discovered this magnificent island, stick around and learn more about Klein (small) Curacao and more about my favorite paradise on earth. The beaches,  restaurants,  villas,  hotels,  diving and the way of life.
