The Curaçao sun is waiting for you. There are still destinations where you can enjoy a relaxing sun holiday in the coming months. Fortunately, Curaçao receives you with open arms and at an appropriate distance. The sun on your back, your gaze over the bright blue sea, a cold drink at your fingertips; the worries of the past months are slowly slipping away. Curacao has restarted tourism in a controlled manner and the number of infections is under control. Because all tourists have to do a Coronavirus (COVID-19) PCR test and measures have been taken, COVID-19 is not so intrusive. Of course we want to keep Curaçao safe for you as a visitor, but of course also for our population.

So don’t wait any longer, the Curaçao sun is waiting for you. Feel it for yourself!
