Located in the southern Caribbean, just 2.5 hours from Florida, Curaçao was selected as one of the Top 10 Destinations for 2010 by Bing.com. Curaçao—the world's newest country and the location of a UNESCO World Heritage Site—boasts an eclectic mix of history and culture that welcomes visitors to this unique island paradise. Curaçao enjoys an ideal locale, situated between Aruba and Bonaire, just 35 miles north of Venezuela. Unlike many Caribbean islands, Curaçao sits on the fringe of the hurricane belt, and has avoided hurricane activity for 123 years.
With its pristine dive sites, secluded beaches and rich local cuisine, Curaçao offers a little something for everyone—from the adventure traveler to those who simply want to unwind and enjoy its perfect climate.
