One of the most gay-friendly islands in all of the Caribbean, Curaçao’s culture is one that embraces life at its most beautiful. It doesn’t even need to wave a rainbow flag to show its joyful colors; this ABC Island simply pops with vibrancy, from the bright Dutch façades on the port of Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage city to the floating markets and whimsically lit Queen Emma Bridge. 

It’s no wonder that this melting pot is one that’s embraced the LGBT community; it has a long history of welcoming all who care to come. More than 50 nationalities are represented in this diverse destination, and Dutch, Spanish, English, and a Creole Papiamentu create music to the ears the complement the jazz and tunes that emanate from the Salinja district. Foot-tapping beats make packing your dancing shoes a must, but you’ll want to kick back in flippers, too. The diving in the Mushroom Forest, Curaçao Wall, and Klein Curaçao are as renowned as its over 35 beaches.
