A European Vibe
The historic capital city of Willemstad, a popular cruise ship port, is a UNESCO World Heritage site and vibrant commercial hub. Hotels range from the 237-room Renaissance Curaçao and 196-room Hilton Curaçao, both with more than 8,000 square feet of meeting space, to smaller incentive-quality resorts.
Color by Decree
In Willemstad, the colorful stretch of pier known as the Handelskade is lined with pastel-hued Dutch Colonial buildings and lively cafes. A mayoral decree in the early 1800s mandated that each building in Willemstad be painted a different color from the one next to it.
Curacaco Tourist Board
The charming, 140-room Avila Beach Resort—the oldest hotel on Curaçao—has been updated for modern meetings. There are six conference rooms, the largest accommodating up to 150 people theater style, and property buyouts are available.
Groups can enjoy outdoor events and al fresco dining year-round in Curaçao’s tropical climate. Shown here, a popular craft cocktail at the Avila Blues Bar, Avila Beach Resort.
Small Groups Welcome

A favorite with locals and visitors alike, the boho chic café Mundo Bizarro in Willemstad has unique decorative flair and excellent cappuccino.
Two If by Sea

For the ultimate de-stressing, a two-hour boat ride will take your group to the uninhabited island and pristine beaches of Klein Curaçao, also known as Little Curaçao.
Cool and Fresh
It’s easy to dine on fresh-caught fish and farm-to-fork veggies in Curaçao. The gazpacho seen here was served at the picturesque seaside restaurant Karacter on the island’s west side.
The ruggedly beautiful limestone and lava landscape at Shete Boka National Park on Curaçao’s northwest coast reveals how the island was born.
Curaçao is known for its remarkable turquoise waters. There are more than 35 beaches around the island; this idyllic cove is on the west side.
