Julia S :

I have never been there before, but my cruise ship itinerary has this on it. Is it nice???

bmwr606 :
"it is one of the best places i have ever been!"
R.S.P. :
"I hate their little league team."
FTG! :
"I hope that cruise will take you to BonAire as well. BEST diving in the world in Bon Aire - even better than that little reef in Australia (in my opinion)."
stella39 :
"Curacao is part of of the ABC islands. Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. This is a very quaint island and a diver's paradise. Beautiful beaches. The main town is Willemstad. They have a wonderful seaquarium there. check it out enjoy)"
dh :
"Best place in the world to dive or snorkel!"
Timothy B :
"It's a small island of the coast of Venezuela, next to Aruba. make sure you check out the downtown area of Punda and Otrabanda, visit the Kura Hulanda Hotel and Museum if you have time, and if possible, book a tour of the island so that you can get to see as much as possible. Oh, the beaches are very worth a visit as well."
Salsa Hermano :

There are many variations of Salsa: L.A. Salsa, NY Salsa On 2, Casino or Cuban Salsa, etc. I read something about Curacao Salsa. Can anyone familiar with Curacao Salsa explain what is it? How is it different from Cuban and other popular salsa? Please write in details how it is danced (such as the breaking of the foot on 1,2,3...). Thanks in advance.

"Check out this site: . That's a link of one of the many salsa courses they give here in Curacao. That class is actually Puerto Rican style salsa, but maybe you can mail the teacher your question."
snowflake :
"I think you know more about salsa than I do, but let me try anyway. See this link: I can't tell if it is just the name of the event/location she teaches at or it is different style called curacao salsa. Looks like a variation of salsa on 2 for all I can tell. I'm under impression that there is a dance event called Curacao Salsa Festival: maybe this is what Curacao Salsa means?"
PraiseBob :

Ok, I have a bottle of blue curacao in my cabinet that really needs to have something done with it. It was originally purchaced to make some PanGalactic Gargleblasters quite some time ago, but alas, I have lost the recipe. I have seen several, but I believe the one I used was mostly rum and had lemonade in it. Points go to the best recipe for using up that bottle of Blue Curacao.

Lindsey :
"make undercurrents 1 oz vodka 1/2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur 1/2 oz sweet and sour mix 1/4 oz raspberry liqueur my favorite. it almost tastes like hawaiin punch. but like 10 times better. (i dont even like hawaiian punch)"
Cheesie M :
"Alien Slime 2.0 oz Blue Curacao 3.0 oz Orange juice 1.0 oz Vodka"
"put it in a cocktail!! blue curacao, pineapple juice, orange juice vodka and lots of ice, it goes a nice green colour!!"
Ogelthorpe13 :
"Off the net.... Mortons :: Menus ... Pangalactic Gargleblaster. Smirnoff Vodka, Blue Curacao & Butlers Triple sec topped with lemonade & grenadine. Alabama Slammer From the book (Hitchhiker's Guide): You need some of that ol' janx spirit, which I have never seen in liquor store on Earth, at least so far."
"The Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster was invented by Zaphod Beeblebrox, a major character in the series. Its original, fictional, recipe is as follows: Take the juice from one bottle of that Ol' Janx Spirit. Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V. (Oh, that Santraginean seawater. Oh, those Santraginean fish!) Allow three cubes of Arcturan Mega-gin to melt into the mixture (It must be properly iced or the benzene is lost). Allow four litres of Fallian marsh gas to bubble through it. (In memory of all those happy hikers who have died of pleasure in the Marshes of Fallia.) Over the back of a silver spoon float a measure of Qalactin Hypermint extract. (Redolent of all the heady odors of the dark Qualactin Zones.) Drop in the tooth of an Algolian Suntiger. (Watch it dissolve, spreading the fires of the Algolian Suns deep into the heart of the drink.) Sprinkle Zamphuor. Add an olive. Drink . . . but . . . very carefully . ."
bargirl_2323 :

bummer65 :
"The 'Secret Recipe' for the worlds best Margarita... I spent a whole summer getting the mix just right! 3/4 cup Cuervo 1800 resposato 1/2 cup Blue Curacao (or triple sec) 1/2 cup Rose's Lime Juice Blend in a pitcher full of ice (you'll have to play to get the right consistancy) Rim a margarita glass with sliced lime wedge & kosher salt, fill 'er up, kick back and enjoy!"
sparklelac :
"Light to med dark rum and equal parts sweet and sour and pineapple juice with a float of blue curacao, served over crushed ice is a blue Hawaiian, or you can use it in place of triple sec in any drink, margaritas, long island ice teas, kamikaze. Blue Curacao is a sweetening agent used for visual effect. How about rum, lemonade and a float of blue curacao over crushed ice in a tall glass, or you can add equal parts lemonade and pineapple juice or orange juice. Blue curacao is very sweet so add it to something that needs the added sweetness."
swansez11 :
"It depend on what else u have in your cabinet. If you have no other alcohol it goes really nice on its own with lemonade. If you have other alchol or are willing to buy some you can make the following cocktails : Fruit Tingle 30ml Blue Curacao 30ml Vodka 30ml Strawberry Liqueur Lemonade Dash of red cordial Serve on ice in tall glass Blue Hawaian 30ml Blue Curacao 30ml Wipeout 30ml Bacardi Lemon & Pineapple Juice Serve on ice in tall glass They are the easiest cocktails without it getting complicated And remember u can add vodka to anything for extra kick! Enjoy!"

As one of the most exciting cities in the Caribbean, Willemstad – Curacao’s charming colonial capital – allows visitors to experience everything from historic architecture and museums to world-class dining and shopping. Willemstad is divided by a central canal into two districts, Punda and Otrabanda.

Stanley Camelia, at 60 graying but still ruggedly handsome, has lived on this Dutch-accented island off the coast of Venezuela all of his life. He's seen Curacao's oil refinery - for years its main source of income - pass from the Shell Oil Co. to local owners, and most recently to Venezuela's state oil company under a multi-million-dollar lease.

Confession: I don't know a whole lot about alcoholic beverages. I'm that girl who pours blue curacao into stuff simply because it turns your drink a cool color. I don't actually know what it is. That's probably not a good thing.
