Living in Curacao

Anyone looking at Curaçao not just from the business side but also from the living environment perspective will discover an island that has much to offer in every aspect. The museums, beaches, numerous country houses (the so-called “landhuizen”) and the friendly population make Curaçao a living environment with something new to discover every day. The beautifully preserved 17th and 18th-century Dutch buildings in Willemstad, the capital of Curaçao, have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

The inhabitants of Curaçao spell the name of the island Kòrsou, a Papiamentu word, indicating a strong cultural sensibility. The island is cosmopolitan but also the Caribbean and Latin American, in its culture: indeed a real melting pot.

The quality of life in Curaçao is of a high standard. Security, economic stability, and tolerance are what characterize daily life. Such aspects as living and working are fully in balance and industrial activities have deliberately been concentrated in designated areas.

Real, different

Curaçao is known to be ‘real, different,’ for the many and varied attractions which can be found on the island. Curaçao is famous for its more than 100 dive sites with visibility ranging from 60 to 150 feet and water temperatures at comfortable temperatures between 70 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. The Curaçao Underwater Park is a 12.5-mile coral reef, which is protected as a National Park. Guides are available for hire, and lessons are offered for beginners.
