Average air temperature = 30/86 degrees + average water temperature =26/80 degrees = toasty :)

2. It won't rain over the entire Easter weekend
It might rain. But if it does, it's like being in a warm shower and will be over in less time than it takes an average adult* to eat an Easter egg. And the rainbows are awesome...

3. It's kite season
When you get lemons, you make lemonade.
When you're in Curacao and you get winds, you make kites. As colourful as possible, and fly them as high as possible.
Available from road-side kite sellers all over the island. Try one out, it's a lot of fun!
Or if you prefer the 'wet' kind of kiting, harness up and go for a ride. (Just make sure you don't need to be able to raise your arms for the following 3 days, or so.) (Wakeboarding's also good for that.)
4. It has world-class shore diving
Boat diving can be pretty "interesting" when it's windy. Mostly because windy = waves. Waves = lots of moving things to deal with = annoying bruises messing up your suntan.
But you don't have to worry about any of that when you dive from Curacao's shore: just walk right into the ocean from the beach, and descend beneath the waves. Very civilised indeed.
With water temperatures around 80 degrees in March, if you haven't tried shore diving yet - and even if you have - this is a great time to do it.
Dive Packages with Trip Advisor's most popular Curacao's most popular PADI 5 Star Dive Center start from just $604 per buddy team, for 3 days of guided, independent and awesome diving.
Book well in advance - they fill up really quickly as they only take small groups and are really popular... heaps more info here.
Not a certified diver? You'd be crazy to let that stop you. Check out the PADI Discover Scuba Dive experience, designed exactly for folks just like you.
If you love it, continue on to become a certified PADI Open Water Diver. It's a lot less fattening than eating Easter eggs and almost as much fun.
5. There's no way you'll be bored

There's heaps of things to do, see, discover and enjoy - especially if you get a rental car (highly recommended):
- More restaurants than you can eat at in one vacation, with all kinds of cuisine and price level choices.
- Huge range of accommodations to suit all budgets and preferences
- Awesome beaches - many quite different to what you might expect on a Caribbean island
- Heaps of bars and night life
- Plenty of "dry" things to do and discover, including a rich and fascinating history, climbing, walking, cycling, ATV-ing, exploring, shopping ...
So there's 5 reasons why
Easter's better in Curacao.
