Are You Traveling to Curacao?

While the pandemic seems to be heading in the direction of an endemic, government measures around the island are becoming more relaxed. Despite this, we think it is still important as hosts of our tourists visiting our island, to address how to handle a possible infection, in the best, safe, and most comfortable way.

Therefore, with the support from our local health department (GGD), and local government officials, we created a simple guidelines document in the form of a Q & A.

Due to this dynamic situation, please continue to check back in case changes to government measures or guidelines.
