All this, and it’s set on the island of Curaçao—still a well-kept secret. This Dutch island sits right next door to Bonaire, and delivers the same underwater experience—mountains of brain, stony and elkhorn corals home to seahorses, frogfish and turtles galore—along with a vibrant downtown.
The main city of Willemstad is like Amsterdam with palm trees, dishing up nightlife, upscale dining, shopping and a mix of Spanish and Portuguese architecture honored as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It’s an ideal destination for divers traveling with non-divers, or for divers wanting to add in more to their next getaway.
