Curacao


Curaçao, a Dutch Caribbean island, is known for its beaches tucked into coves and its expansive coral reefs rich with marine life. The capital, Willemstad, has pastel-colored colonial architecture, floating Queen Emma Bridge and the sand-floored, 17th-century Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue.

We are very pleased that we could resume flights to Curacao, but the immigration and health authorities have strict entry requirements and travel regulations in place that travelers must comply with. Make sure you are up to date with these requirements before you travel! click here for the links to the authorities websites
