Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive and explore the capital of Willemstad
Day 2 Enjoy the beaches of Curaçao
Day 3 Sightseeing in Curaçao
Day 4 Little Curaçao


Day 1

On your first day, explore Willemstad. The capital of Curaçao, Willemstad is packed with things for visitors. Start with a trip to Saliña to experience some of the best shopping on the island. This is your best opportunity to take a look at the food and retail culture of the island. After taking in some great food and shopping, go to Dolphin Academy Curacao. The conversation center facilitates meaningful connections between dolphins and people.

Day 2

Curaçao is home to some incredible beaches. Start the day with a trip to Jan Thiel Beach. The beach is part of Willemstad and has a host of great places. Soak up the rays in a sun bed and then head north to Blue Bay. You can snorkel at the bay or simply enjoy the deep blue nature of the water. Finally, go to Mambo Beach, to the east of Jan Thiel Beach. This white-sand beach has places to eat and drink nearby, so grab a drink and relax.

Day 3

Curaçao is packed with things to see and do aside from beaches and shopping. Check out the Hato Caves. These limestone caves have frequent guided tours and are must-see. Kura Hulanda is your next stop; with an emphasis on the local slave trade, this museum is important for visitors to get a fully contextualized history of the island. Spend an afternoon exploring Christoffel National Park. The park is rife with hiking trails and wildlife and will easily take up much of your day. When the sun sets, make sure to see Queen Emma Bridge. This pontoon bridge includes lighted arches and has been a huge piece of Curaçao since 1888.

Day 4

The final day of your adventure is going to be spent indulging in relative isolation on a real desert island. Little Curaçao is a 1.7 square kilometer off the coast of Curaçao proper. The island is primarily used as a base for scuba diving and snorkeling, but is worth it to spend the day in relaxation. The island’s only structures include a lighthouse and old beach house.

The Party Starts Late and Lasts Past Dawn in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina, comes to life at night. Translating to “good airs” or “fair winds,” Buenos Aires is an autonomous district filled to the brim with eclectic European architecture and a rich cultural life. The multicultural city, a melting pot of language, history, incredible food and music, comes to life at night. When you travel to Buenos Aires, be prepared to eat late, choose from hundreds of restaurants and thousands of bars and clubs, and dance beyond dawn. The city’s nightlife, as varied as it is intense, allows you to dance to whatever rhythm takes your fancy. A city that oozes sex appeal, it proves dynamic and passionate, and the beauty and rhythm will get under your skin for an amazing trip.
