Top 10 Things To Do In Curacao + Free Printable Instagram Worthy Activity Checklist

My bucket list this year is to visit every Caribbean island so I’ve made it my mission and have loved exploring each island. I love the Caribbean because it’s close to the US so it’s a quick flight, affordable, they have bright blue and crystal clear waters, and have that tropical feel that just makes you feel like you’re on vacation.

Curacao has been on my list for a while so I’m so glad I was able to visit! My husband and I went in March for our babymoon and it was perfect. We rented a car and explored half of the island to the fullest, It was a blast. I felt like we got to see and do a lot. From the Blue Curacao tasting experience to visiting pigs on the beach, there is so much to see and do on this small little island. I’ve put together my top 10 things to do in Curacao and even included a printable checklist for you. So pack your bags and get ready to visit Curacao!

Pro Tip: Curacao is one of the ABC islands so if you can, I’d recommend visiting Aruba and Bonaire while you’re in the area. The island hopper flights are pretty inexpensive and it’s worth it to visit those two!

Seeing the colorful buildings of Willemstad is one of the best things to do in Curacao

Floating market in Willemstad
