Curacao vacation

I am linking up with Scenic Sunday

I have to write about my recent vacation to Curacao. Curacao is in the southern Caribbean Sea off the Venezuelan coast.  It is known for diving and snorkeling, for me it will be known for its birds. Curacao is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. We stayed 7 nights at the Marriott Beach Resort. I did a lot of research to find hubby a hotel where he could walk out the room and go snorkeling.  He was happy :) Hubby and I alternate choosing vacation places. This year was his choice and it was between Bonaire or Curacao. Bonaire one of the other ABC islands is known more for diving than snorkeling. Aruba is the other ABC island and is much more commercialized.

Now for some photos from our trip. You can click on the photo for a larger image.



The Marriott Beach Resort was a great hotel and we really enjoyed our stay there. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The food, drinks and the sunsets were amazing.

We had a great room overlooking the pool area but it also had a view of the ocean.


Here is hubby snorkeling in the background there is Princess line cruise ship that will dock in Williamstad


Another beautiful sunset seen from our hotel.

 Williamstad is the capital of Curacao. I will do another post on our visit to Williamstad and our various outing around the island.

I hope you enjoyed my post, there will more coming on our vacation in Curacao. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Please visit Scenic Sunday for more beautiful photos and post. Thanks to the Holley's for hosting and thanks for stopping by to see my post.

  1. 7 nights at a same hotel should have offered you a good stay, and of course, many birds.

  7. We stopped there briefly on a cruise, said we'd rather spend more time there than in Aruba ...never did either again (bought an RV, sold the house, yada yada....). Anyway, I'm glad you had a great vacation -- with birds! (Oh, yeah, and glad hubby was happy too -- that's always important!)
