Since 2010, Curacao has been part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Despite the fact that it is now an autonomous country, Dutch influences are still very clear. The official language, together with Papiamentu, is still Dutch.
The island is loved by holidaymakers because of its many beautiful beaches and sunny climate; the average temperature is 27 degrees. The 'rainy season' lasts from October to February, but consists mainly of short nocturnal rains.
In summer, it is 6 hours earlier on Curacao than in the Netherlands, in winter time it is 5 hours earlier. Also useful to know: the currency is the Antillean guilder, but you'll generally be fine with American dollars too. It takes about 10 hours by plane from Amsterdam.
