Why Discover Curaçao at the Outdoor Adventure Show 2024?

Voted Top 10 Overall Caribbean Diving Destination

Curaçao has once again clinched its position as a Top 10 Overall Caribbean Diving Destination in Scuba Diving Magazine’s 2024 Readers Choice Awards, recognizing the world’s best diving experiences. As the largest of the ABC Islands, including Aruba and Bonaire, Curaçao boasts some of the most bio-diverse reefs in the Caribbean.

Sheltered Southern Coast and Diverse Marine Life

The sheltered southern coast of Curaçao is rich in coral, making it suitable for divers of all levels. Positioned on the outer fringes of the Hurricane Belt, the popular dive sites offer little in the way of adverse conditions. Divers and snorkelers can’t stop talking about the beauty of scuba diving in Curaçao, and with good reason.

Beyond the Depths: Beaches, Heritage, and Architecture

Curaçao isn’t just about the underwater wonders; it’s a multifaceted gem. Boasting more than 35 captivating beaches, a diverse heritage spanning 55 different cultures, and an unrivaled European architecture, Curaçao stands out as one of the most exceptional islands in the Caribbean. The heart of the Dutch Caribbean, Willemstad, the capital city, is a UNESCO World Heritage site with its iconic colorful Handelskade backdrop.
