Pretty much everyone dreamt about it at least once: escape the rainy-cold winter and head to the sunny Caribbean. In the end of last year we had the unique chance to trade snowshoes and woolen hats for bathing trunks and bath towel, as our travel destination after a 10 hour long flight was Curacao.
Curacao is a 444 km² large island, that geographically belongs to South America. Until two years ago Curacao was the largest island of the Netherlands Antilles. You'll still sense this walking through the streets of the capital Willemstad, as you get a more European than Caribbean feeling. The temperatures are rising up to 30 degrees during daytime and cools down to ca. 25 degrees in the evening. So you should rather leave pants and coats at home.
