Let me tell you about my incredible adventure on this captivating island. Let me take you on a journey to the enchanting island of Curaçao, where my senses were captivated by its vibrant Asian cuisine, a thrilling catamaran cruise, awe-inspiring clear kayak drone shots, and more. From the moment I set foot on its shores, I was entranced by the azure waters, mouthwatering cuisine, and tranquil atmosphere that enveloped me. For my stay, I chose the Boho Bohemian Boutique Hotel nestled in the heart of Willemstad, Curaçao. This charming hotel exuded a boho, island-chic vibe that instantly won me over. From the inviting courtyard jacuzzi to the picture-perfect surroundings, every corner of this place was brimming with positive energy. My family room boasted a cute balcony that provided a delightful view of the neighborhood. Not only was the hotel conveniently located just 20 minutes from the airport, but it also stood within walking distance of a plethora of restaurants, beach clubs, and convenience shops. Each evening, as I ventured out to indulge in local delicacies, I reveled in the joy of strolling along to my favorite beach club. Oh, the convenience!

To start my days off right, the hotel provided breakfast at its sister establishment, the Klooster Boutique Hotel, just a street away. There, I relished in their delightful pool and savored a scrumptious morning meal. If you’re curious, do check out their Instagram @bohocuracao for a taste of what awaits (

When it came to dining, I discovered a true gem at the on-site restaurant of Klooster’s, called Oliva Mediterranean Gastro Bar. Known for its tantalizing Mediterranean tapas plates and luscious sangria, this place was a culinary delight. I followed their recommendation and ordered 2-3 tapas plates, allowing me to relish flavors such as succulent chicken wings, delectable chicken skewers, and an unforgettable truffle spinach pasta. The pasta, a chef’s special, left me yearning for more. If you’re tempted, check them out on Instagram @olivacuracao (

Now, I’m the kind of traveler who craves adventure and a packed itinerary. And boy, did Curaçao deliver! One of the most exhilarating experiences I had was the Aquafari. Picture this: riding a bike under the water, equipped with a helmet featuring an attached oxygen tank. Despite not being a swimmer, I mustered the courage to descend 23 feet into the open sea. It was a completely novel and awe-inspiring adventure, especially for non-swimmers like me.

To truly embrace the island vibes, I spent a glorious day at the Avila Beach Hotel, which sits right on the waterfront. The breathtaking view of the crystal-clear water gently caressing the sandy shores created a picturesque backdrop as I savored a sumptuous meal and enjoyed a soothing neck and back massage right on the beach. I opted for a day pass, which granted me access to the pool, beach, and even included a delightful lunch. It was the epitome of relaxation and tranquility, perfect for unwinding amidst the island’s serene ambiance. Check them out on Instagram @avilabeachhotel ( )

Now, prepare yourself for Soi95, a hidden gem on the island that specializes in Asian delicacies. Prepare your taste buds for an explosion of flavors as their talented bartenders craft some of the most exquisite drinks you’ll ever encounter. Trust me, they don’t just mix beverages; they create unforgettable experiences. With a menu of delectable small plates to choose from, I couldn’t resist trying their mouthwatering fried rice, heavenly duck spring egg rolls, succulent shrimp, and the pièce de résistance: the mouthwatering chicken skewers. Oh, the sauce on those skewers was a tantalizing blend of flavors that left me craving more. As I savored each bite, the restaurant’s great music and rooftop ambiance only heightened the overall experience. Plus, it was conveniently located within walking distance from our hotel.

Now, let’s set sail on an unforgettable adventure aboard the Blue Finn Charter’s catamaran cruise. Our destination? The stunning Khlein Island boasts clear waters that beckon you to explore their depths. Snorkeling was an absolute delight, as I marveled at the vibrant fish and graceful turtles gliding beneath the surface. Meanwhile, the friendly boat crew fired up the grill, preparing mouthwatering ribs, juicy steak, and tender chicken with a delightful array of sides. And let’s not forget the open bar, a refreshing treat that kept the good times flowing. As we basked in the sun, danced to upbeat tunes, and raised a glass of Rosé, it was the epitome of a perfect island getaway. Join in on the fun by visiting @bluefinncharters on Instagram (

Now, get ready for a truly extraordinary experience as we discover Dushiviews, the only company on the island of Curaçao that offers clear kayak drone shots. We’ve all seen those stunning images on social media, and let me assure you, this experience lives up to the hype. With their expert guidance, I found myself comfortable and confident as they captured breathtaking photos and amazing drone videos. It’s no easy feat to operate a drone while posing, but their professionalism and direction made the entire session a breeze. If you want to capture unforgettable memories, check out on Instagram (

Of course, no trip is without its quirks, and Curaçao is no exception. Remember, Mondays here are akin to Sundays in America, with many places closed or operating on limited hours. However, fear not! Sundays are known for their vibrant celebrations, allowing you to partake in the beloved Sunday Funday tradition. Another thing to keep in mind is that Curaçao doesn’t have Uber, so taxis are the way to go. Just be aware that they can be a bit pricey, especially when heading to activities. Luckily, if you choose to stay at Boho Hotel, like I did, you’ll find that most places are within walking distance. 

Now the majority of the island’s residents spoke English fluently. This made exploring and interacting with locals a breeze and added an extra layer of convenience to my journey. Another pleasant surprise was the acceptance of American currency throughout the island. No need to fret about currency conversion; your dollars will be warmly welcomed.  I discovered a handy app designed specifically for Curaçao, allowing me to summon a taxi with just a few taps on my smartphone. Alternatively, my accommodation at Boho Hotel was more than happy to assist in arranging transportation for me. Whether you prefer the convenience of technology or the personalized touch of your hotel, getting around Curaçao is a seamless experience.

In conclusion, Curaçao revealed itself as a haven of serenity, a sanctuary where I could embrace the tranquil beauty of nature. From its friendly English-speaking locals to the convenience of using American currency, the island effortlessly catered to the needs of travelers. Immerse yourself in the vibrant culture, indulge in the tantalizing cuisine, and let the serene atmosphere of Curaçao rejuvenate your spirit. This island paradise truly has it all – an oasis of tranquility, a culinary haven, and an experience that will leave an indelible mark on your soul.
