At first glance, Curacao may seem like one big melting bowl of cultures. The local language is a combination of Spanish, Dutch and English. The people live in the Caribbean but have the Dutch nationality and skin color doesn’t really say anything about your ancestry. Admittedly, this does kind of sound like a melting pot. In the Kura Hulanda anthropological museum you can learn more about why that is. From the first inhabitants of the island to the significant role played by the (Dutch) slave trade.
