No Worrying About Hurricanes
Many people are wary of hosting corporate events in the Caribbean because they’re worried about hurricanes. The island is not far off from the coast of Venezuela and is pretty much out of the way of hurricanes. In addition to being incredibly low risk for hurricanes, the wet season in Curacao is generally short-lived.
The beaches in Curacao are nothing short of gorgeous. Many of the major hotels, including the Avila and the Hilton Curacao, have their own private beaches. There are also plenty of other beaches located all around the island where your employees can relax and soak up the sun’s rays.
Curacao was colonized by the Dutch and has been a part of the Netherlands ever since. The Dutch culture can be found all around the island from the architecture of the buildings to the snacks sold in different shops. In the capital of Willemstad, you’ll find a bit of Spanish culture mixed in with the Dutch as well. You can enjoy the culture of Curacao by walking around the streets as well as by visiting the museums on the island.
One of the best parts about traveling to a new location for corporate events is getting to experience the food that the destination has to offer. The food of Curacao is incredibly unique, blending Dutch, Latin American, and Caribbean flavors. You’ll find everything from upscale restaurants to trendy food trucks. And as your destination management company, we can help to point you toward where to find the best food on the island.
