This outing perfectly captures the beauty of Curaçao and the island’s outstanding natural charms.

Drive through Willemstad, heading westward through the city and out into the countryside. Along the way, you’ll see several plantation homes and old slave houses.

Visit the Kas di Pal'i Maishi (Slave House) & Museum. Your guide will explain the way of life on Curaçao in the old days. You will learn about the uses of the abundantly available cactus plants, hear a local song and watch a traditional dance. You can try on the typical island headwear -- a great vacation picture waiting to happen. Your guide will show how to carry a bucket on your head in the way the locals do -- try it yourself and you will find it is quite a skill.

Boka Tabla, your next stop, is a National Park, where the wild sea meets the coast and the waves explode against wild rock formations -- a testament to nature’s raw power. At West Point, snap a few photos from the coach and enjoy the beautiful view over the Caribbean Sea at Playa Forti.

The last stop is at the most beautiful tropical beach on the island, with its unforgettable azure blue sea and stunning white beach.

On the way back to Willemstad, make the most of a short pause for photos from the coach at the Jan Kok salt lakes, where you might be lucky enough to spot some flamingos.

Notes:

Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed.
