Take a boat trip to watch the most beautiful sunset in Curacao

From there, they’ll take you to the port and offers a great view over the water and the sunset of Curacao. This also allows you to see the Juliana Bridge and Emma Bridge (pontoon bridge) from a unique location. This tour is suitable for anyone who wants to see Curacao from another perspective.

Discover the Blue Room

The Blue Room is a cave that you can only enter by swimming three meters under water. The hidden cave gets its name from the blue light that fills the room. This is due to the reflected sunlight through the clear blue water. You can get to the entrance of the Blue Room by hiking, canoeing or taking a water taxi. No matter how you get there: the Blue Room is definitely worth a visit.

Dive with dolphins in open ocean of Curacao

Meet dolphins on Curacao. Dolphin Academy on Curacao has trained their dolphins to swim in the open sea. This offers divers to opportunity to see these amazing animals in their natural environment. The dolphins on Curacao are anything but shy and like to swim and play with divers. For this tour, a dive certificate is required.

Standup paddle and discover Curacao

You can also explore the island in an active and particular way: on a standup paddle board on Curacao. The board on which you stand is much like a big surfboard. You move forward by using a paddle. It is easy to maintain your balance on the board: anyone can do it. Accompanied by an experienced guide you can explore the beautiful mangroves and waters of Curacao. There are several different tours to choose from, so it just depends on what you feel like.

Explore the Christoffel Park

The Christoffel Park is the largest natural park of Curacao and a must see for everyone who loves nature. You can explore the park by car, a pickup safari or by foot. There are eight different hiking trails of which the climbing of the Christoffel Mountain (372 meters high) is an absolute highlight. The hike to the top is rather difficult and not suitable for people who have difficulty walking. The view from the top is phenomenal: under the right circumstances, almost all of Curacao is visible. It is strongly recommended to begin this journey early in the morning, as it simply gets too hot during the day for such effort. For other hikes through this beautiful natural park, this is true to a lesser extent.

City tours are extra special in a 1926 Rolls Royce. Especially popular amongst men. Do something out of the ordinary by making your vacation truly stand out in an elegant way.

Tour the city of Willemstad and/or to use as the ultimate (wedding) prop.
