Located in the Southern Caribbean sea, Bonaire and Curacao are part of the ABC Islands (Aruba Bonaire and Curaçao). Also known as the Netherlands Antilles. They lie outside of the hurricane zone. It’s the perfect Caribbean vacation spot, 365 days a year! Why not adventure with a Bonaire and Curacao Yacht charter?
The ABC islands are close enough to mainland Venezuela to share similar cultures but far enough away to keep their unique identity. They lie outside the hurricane belt, making them perfect for year-round travel and tourism.
The three islands all have something different to offer from one another: Aruba has pristine beaches and beautiful sunsets; Bonaire has abundant wildlife, such as flamingos and sea turtles; Curaçao has quaint architecture with colorful markets filled with fresh produce from local vendors. All three have a rich history of colonialism by European powers, including the Netherlands, which still retains an administrative role in their governance today.
The weather doesn’t change significantly, so you can expect sunny days with temperatures around 29’C with refreshing trade wind breezes to cool you down. Since the weather is so exceptional, you probably will not need to pack a jacket.
English, Dutch, Spanish, and Papiamentu (local dialect) are spoken throughout the Islands. Currency is the US dollar or Antillean Guilder (on Curacao).
The US dollar has a fixed rate of 1.78. Local food specialties are often Krioyo (Creole). A mix of Dutch, Caribbean, Indonesian, and International Cuisine make up the mainstay of restaurant dining.
Enjoy the peaceful waters of uninhabited Klein Curacao. The abandoned lighthouse and shipwrecks wait to be explored.
Turtles and dolphins swim in the waters. At only 1.7 square km, it’s barely more than an atoll. The white sand beaches of Klein Curacao rise from the Caribbean Sea and beckon you to its shores.
Note: The best currency to use in Curacao is the “Florin.” USD is accepted in most places. However, US coins are often not. Therefore you will want to exchange for some Florin coins; keep in mind there is an exchange rate.
