Curacao in the Caribbean  


Curaçao is a perfect place for diving, but as you will find, our island has so much more to offer. There are dozens of undiscovered adventures to be enjoyed. Ranging from practicing water sports to visiting 17th century architecture sites, from enjoying tennis to enjoying world-class cuisine, from playing golf in our sunny climate to visiting high-standard casinos. So if you are looking for more than just a dive vacation, Curaçao has something out-of-the-ordinary for everybody.

Getting around

The airport in Curacao is named Hato International Airport. The International Airport has the longest runway in the Caribbean at 3,410 meters in length.

The customer information desk is located in the corridor between the check-in area and the entrance to the departure hall and can be reached at (599) 839-3111

If you plan to rent a car in Curacao, be aware you will be driving on the left. The only islands in the Caribbean where you drive on the right are Aruba, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Martinique, and the Netherlands Antilles.

Taxi service is available on the island. Although metered rates vary, they are reasonable and are fixed by law. Bicycles and scooters are also available for rent at most popular tourist centers.

You can use your home driver’s license but you'll need to purchase a temporary Curacao driver's license for $20. Remember, when you take to the road, British rules apply, so keep to the left. Pedestrians should remember to look right before crossing streets.

Rental cars are also available.
