Excuse me, who, what, where is Curacao? - A question I've been asked a gazillion times. You didn't pay much attention to those geography lessons, did you? Caribbean islands should not be an exception, since you're planning on retiring someday.
Uh-Oh.. My thought exactly. Enough chatter.
So where exactly is Curacao located anyways? Somewhere in the Caribbean Sea to the northeast of Venezuela near Aruba and Bonaire.Curacao, Willemstad Location
Curacao is not as popular as other Caribbean islands and I'll tell you exactly why. Curacao is simply not your average Caribbean destination. The island has consciously chosen not to compete for the mainstream Caribbean image of sun, sea and sand.
Curacao positions itself differently. Ask the Curacao Tourism Board what to expect and they'll mention the slogan "Curacao, Real, Different".Curacao Souvenirs
But what exactly is so different about Curacao? Curacao opts for diversity and does not focus solely on Caribbean fun in the sun. The island boasts a forward-thinking cosmopolitan atmosphere while preserving its Caribbean charm. This combination makes Curacao, quiet unique.
The island is therefore an attractive destination for those who are looking for a challenging career in a romantic Caribbean setting. Especially young people, who first set foot on Curacao, become smitten with this bountiful Caribbean island. The old-fashioned image of the Caribbean retiree island is gone. On Curacao you can start living your dream now, why wait for retirement?View of Punda, Willemstad
