Curacao is located in the southern part of the Caribbean Sea, about 60 km off the Venezuelan coast. Curacao was discovered in 1499 by Alonso de Ojeda, belongs to the ABC Islands and is 444 km² in size. The Antilles island has about 145,000 inhabitants from over 40 nations. It has been Dutch territory since 1634 and an independent country in the Kingdom of the Netherlands since 10.10.2010. Both the Antillean Guilder (ANG) and the US dollar are common currencies. In addition to Dutch, Papiamentu (Creole language) has been the official language since 2007. Many residents also speak English and Spanish. Curacao has no fresh water sources, so the local energy producer, Aqualektra, commissioned a seawater desalination plant, the largest of its kind in the world, in 1928. The water is of excellent quality and can be safely drunk all over the island. Curacao is a year-round travel destination and is one of the best beach holiday destinations in the world. More than 35 white sandy beaches invite you to swim. Divers and snorkelers will also find perfect conditions here. There is a predominantly dry climate with temperatures between 27 degrees and 33 degrees Celsius. Curacao is one of the favored islands "under the winds" and is therefore outside the hurricane belt. Of particular note is the beautiful colonial-style, unique capital (Willemstad). Willemstad is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
