7) Curacao

Curacao is most commonly known as a genuinely exotic international experience and social nightlife. As one of the three “ABC” islands (along with Aruba and Bonaire), Curacao is largest and most populated of the Netherlands Antilles.” The island capital, Willemstad, is a mixture of city-meets-island life with brightly colored Dutch architecture, and its Old Town area is a designated World Heritage site. From shopping, casinos, and museums in picturesque Willemstad, Curacao is perfect for those seeking a new adventure from typical Caribbean hot spots.
