Diving in Curacao is a unique and must-do experience for many reasons. It is set apart from other Caribbean islands because of its assorted sea life, varied underwater scenery and the convenience of the reefs being so close to shore. It’s not unusual to see turtles sunning and whales cruising through the water.
At the western end of the island is Christoffel National Park. The park consists of three former plantations and 20 miles of trails with exotic gardens. Cacti grow up to 10 feet tall and several different species of orchids, some of them extremely rare, can be found blooming on them.
The Curacao Museum is set up in a historic building dating back to 1853.

The fish and coral aren’t just limited to the ocean and beaches. Be sure to visit the Curacao Sea Aquarium that has over 400 ocean species on display.
