Curacao's beaches may be nubbled with coral or strewn with imported grains and the local liqueur may be a first rate rotgut, but it more than makes up for these niggles with high comfort levels, guaranteed balminess and a friendliness that constantly threatens to bubble over into a party.
With the average high in any day of the year not drifting too far from 86°F (30°C) there is plenty of sun for everyone, with spicy trade winds particularly seductive to northerners between January and March. October to December are the only particularly rainy months but showers are at most moderate in duration.

CURACAO Tours, Travel and Activities
Curacao is an island in the Netherlands Antilles, two island groups in the Caribbean Sea - one includes Curaçao and Bonaire, north of Venezuela; the other is east of the Virgin Islands. Curaçao is among the group known as the ABC Islands alongside Aruba and Bonaire. This trio is located near Venezuela, and are considered to be outside the Caribbean's so-called "hurricane zone." This means that vacations to the island are rarely disrupted by such tropical storms.
One of the most notable things about the island is its culture. This Dutch island features the pastel colors and building styles you'd find in the Netherlands. However, the people of the island have developed a culture, and even a language, of their own. Papiamentu (often spelled Papiamento) is the island's native Creole.

SUGGESTED ITINERARIES: CURACAO
Forget the squat resorts muscling each other along the coast and don't be put off by the disjointed shambles of badly signed roads: Willemstad - the capital of the Netherlands Antilles and one of a select number of urban areas on UNESCO's World Heritage List - is gorgeous.
Playa Kalki, a gorgeous sheltered beach on the northwestern tip of Curaçao, is the perfect place to take photos of yourself to make your friends jealous. How about one of you sitting contemplatively on dappled rocks, looking out into the turquoise haze of the Caribbean Sea?
