When planning an incentive event, you want to make sure that it motivates your employees while also rewarding them for their hard work. Sure, you might have conferences or meetings planned, but you also want to make sure that you plan plenty of fun things to do as well. If you’re planning on taking your employees to the Caribbean for your next incentive event, look no further than Curacao. This little island may not be as well-known as Aruba, but it offers many incredible activities that can make your incentive event an incredible one.
Walk the Queen Emma Bridge
The Queen Emma Bridge isn’t like other bridges you’ll come across. It’s actually a floating bridge that’s supported by pontoon boats and is one of the most popular attractions on the island. The bridge itself connects two districts of Curacao’s capital of Willemstad, Punda, and Otrobanda. It opens up to allow boats to pass multiple times during the course of the day. Instead of lifting like a drawbridge, however, the boats are shifted so that the bridge is moved to the side of the canal.
Visit the Floating Market
The floating market is quite unique. Its name is due to the fact that many products sold on the island come by boat from Venezuela, which isn’t that far off. Most of the stalls are then set up on the dock. There’s a lot going on at this market, and it can get pretty crowded, but it’s definitely an interesting place to visit. Not only will you find a wide array of products, but you’ll also hear several different languages being spoken.
Take a Trip to Klein Curacao
Klein Curacao is an uninhabited island. There’s no houses, shops, restaurants, or roads. There is, however, a lighthouse in the middle of the island that visitors can climb. On one side of the island, you find gorgeous beaches, clear water, and palm trees. On the other side, you’ll find harsher waters and shipwrecks. As your destination management company (DMC), ECO DMS can help you to plan this unique excursion.
Walk Through Christoffel National Park
If you’re looking to take your employees out on a hike, look no further than Christoffel National Park. There are many incredible hiking trails where everyone can enjoy the native flora and fauna of the island. And the view at the top of the mountain is absolutely amazing.
Take a Chi-Chi Doll Class
Chi Chi dolls are little statues that have become a big part of Curacao. These little dolls are painted in bright colors with gorgeous designs. While you can buy them at a souvenir shop, you can also arrange for a group class. We can help you to organize a class where your employees can paint their own.
See the Beauty of the Underwater World
There’s more to Curacao than what’s on the island. There’s a lot going on under the surface of the ocean, including gorgeous reefs, different types of sea creatures, and sunken ships. You can see all of this by going scuba diving. Your employees don’t even have to be experienced divers either. We can help to connect you with an experienced diving company that can take your employees on a discovery dive so that they can see things they might never be able to see anywhere else.
These are just a few of the amazing things that you can do during your Curacao incentive event. With the help of destination management services, you can create a custom itinerary that all of your employees are sure to enjoy.
