Curacao and uninhabited neighbour Little Curacao, are part of the ABC islands – the A and B are Aruba and Bonaire – known for clear water, marine laden diving and snorkeling and generally being tropical island paradises of the Caribbean kind, with the added spice of a cactus loved interior. The south side has the most idyllic reef fringed beaches and the prettiest old Dutch-built towns in a pastel candy shop of colours.

Inland there’s a wildlife park and acres of salt marches which flamingos flock to and stride all over. The food is Creole in flavour, the weather sans the hurricanes that torment much of the Caribbean and the language and culture a refreshingly unique blend of Dutch, Caribbean, Portuguese and Spanish flavours.

I have to add that the waters are as blue as Blue Curacao.
