Bucket List Productions is a travel blog that I follow. One post titled “5 Family Friendly Activities in Curacao” caught my attention in the fall of 2013. I had never heard of this island in the southern Caribbean but it looked like the perfect place to travel to with my family. The fact that WestJet flies direct from Toronto was a huge selling feature. We explored the whole island. The beaches were to die for and the snorkeling was amazing. The ostrich farm was great for the whole family. The aquarium was so much fun the kids cried all the way out because they didn’t want to leave. The blend of Caribbean and Dutch culture was refreshing. If you are an explorer and are looking for a safe place to take your children, Curacao is a must.
