Curaçao


January/February 2004

Curaçao is the biggest island of the Netherland Antilles in the Dutch Carribean 45 miles away from Venezuela. The area of the island is nearly 200 square miles with 170.000 inhabitans. Some beaches have magnificant white corall sand and very clear water. This island was once centre of slavery. We liked most hotel complex Kurá Hulanda (=">Dutch courtyard"), established by 65 colonial houses including narrow streets and squares in the capital Willemstad. We have chosen this island to meet our Dutch friends Hans and Paul who live in the same resort (many thanx to both of them for their time and help!).


we stayed in a separate house in Livingstone Jan-Thiel-Resort
