On Curacao, the live and let live attitude of the Dutch has found a home in the warm waters of the Caribbean. The cosmopolitan port of Willemstad, with its excellent restaurants and unique Dutch colonial architecture painted in bright Caribbean colors, is about 45 minutes from the resort.
Located on the west side of the island, Kura Hulanda Lodge & Beach Club features an excellent house reef (the "Alice in Wonderland" dive site) for easy shore diving right off its own beach, two pools, internet access, fitness center, and several onsite restaurants.
Curacao's reefs are healthy and protected by the National Curacao Underwater Park, and the highly professional Go West dive shop is right on the hotel premises. You'll dive two tanks from our private boat for five mornings and one tank each afternoon, plus unlimited shore diving for five days.
If you've dreamed of learning to dive but haven't yet had the opportunity, this is your chance! You can complete the PADI Open Water scuba course on this trip and learn to dive in invitingly clear, warm water. Divers who are already certified can earn their Advanced Open Water qualification here.
