Curaçao is located approximately 35 miles off the northwestern coast of Venezuela. The island is about 444 sq. kilometers (171 sq. miles) in size, is characterized by low hilly terrain and low humidity due to the constant northeast breezes, and enjoys a mild tropical climate, fairly constant throughout the year. The average temperature is 28°C (76°F) and the island does not receive much rainfall. Willemstad is the capital of Curaçao.
The temperate climate of Curaçao invites the casual clothes of summer, and the no-press fabrics are ideal for both men and women who like to travel light. Trade winds bring fresh breezes from the sea. Bring two or more swimsuits and, even if you are a seasoned sunbather, some cover-ups for coping with the Caribbean's tanning sun.
