The climate of Curaçao is idyllic, with plenty of sunny weather and high temperatures 78° F to 92° F (26C to 33C) all year round. The heat is moderated by pleasant and almost constant trade winds (15-20 knots) blowing in from the east. Curacao lies outside of the hurricane belt, but its tropical location does foster occasional thunderstorms. The rainfall is sparse (22"/year) with showers mostly occurring in short bursts between October – December, and usually falls at night.

About Curaçao

Curaçao is very different from other Caribbean islands. It has a population of 150,000, representing over 90 different nationalities. Consequently you will find a wide variety of restaurants, shops and attractions catering to every taste. Due to the multi-cultural diversity of nationalities on the island, four main languages are spoken fluently—English, Dutch, Spanish, and the native language Papiamentu (born out of Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, French and African).

Most of the residents live in or near the capital Willemstad, a bustling historical port. All ships enter the harbor from the St. Anna Bay where you can find the famous floating pontoon bridge connecting the two parts of the city, Otrobanda and Punda. Willemstad is an exotic blend of Dutch architecture with colorful Caribbean pastels. Its outstanding historic downtown is one of just six UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) World Heritage sites in the Caribbean, with over 700 protected buildings.
