Caribbean Islands - Curacao (Chapter)
This is the Curaçao chapter from Lonely Planet’s Caribbean Islands guidebook.
Curaçao balances commerce with Unesco-recognized old Willemstad and an accessible beauty, thanks to hidden beaches along a lush coast. It’s a wild mix of urban madness, remote vistas and a lust for life.
- immerse yourself in Willemstad, with Unesco-recognized Dutch colonial heritage and the grit of a busy port town
- explore hidden beaches on the jagged west coast
- restaurants & accommodations
- bear witness to Curaçao’s horrible legacy of slavery at the Museum Kura Hulanda in Willemstad’s equally historic Otrobanda neighborhood
Coverage includes: Understand Curaçao, History, Culture, Landscape & Wildlife, Survival Guide, Directory A-Z, Getting There & Away, Getting Around, Willemstad, Southeast of Willemstad, North of Willemstad, Kleine St Michel, West Coast, Playa Lagún, Knip Beaches, Westpunt and East Coast.
