Like Aruba and Bonaire, Curacao is located outside the hurricane belt, making it the perfect destination to visit any time of the year. Curaçao's weather tends to be sunny even throughout the months that other Caribbean islands experience torrential rains. Annual temperatures average between 80 and 85 degrees. The heat is moderated by pleasant and consistent trade winds blowing in from the east.

3. Nightlife

For those looking to fill their days and nights with fun, Curacao has a hopping nightlife scene. Live music is a staple of this multicultural island, and all types of music can be heard, from jazz to soca (a combination of West Indian and East Indian rhythmic traditions).
