Michelle and I have traveled extensively in the Caribbean and South Pacific, and chose Curacao as our island home in 2007. The diverse people & cultures, European flair combined with Caribbean architecture & colors, amazing shore diving and snorkeling and uncrowded beaches make curacao unique. Michelle and I are avid divers, and greatly enjoy the large amount of shore diving easily accessed from beaches.
