5 really good reasons why Easter's better in Curacao

1. It's warm...

Not hot, hot, hot but lovely, toasty warm. Thanks to the constant trade winds, you shouldn't overheat. And thanks to your refrigerator / cool box, neither should your Easter eggs*.

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

*NOTE: If you're not entirely satisfied with your Easter eggs, The Dive Bus Crew will dispose of them FREE OF CHARGE as per our Eco Policy (refuse, reuse, recycle).

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
The Kite Seller, by Barry Brown
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.

They're available from road-side kite sellers all over the island.

Try one out, it's a lot of fun!
More info on

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. (Y'know, a bit like wakeboarding...)

4. It has world-class shore diving

 World class shore divingBoat 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.
