Curacao is an eclectic mix of European charm and Caribbean culture. While it shares many of the same characteristics of its neighbor, Aruba-namely fantastic beaches and warm, temperate weather year-round--it also offers rich the culture and architecture that Aruba lacks. Curacao, along with its capital of Willemstad, also offers an incredible array of duty-free stores, casinos, and discotheques perfect for those who want more out of their vacation besides sitting on the beach. Since the island only receives about 20 inches of rainfall a year, the countryside is generally very arid. However, for those who don't want to worry about rain during their vacation, then Curacao is a natural choice.
