Curacao — Sophisticated Curaçao, the largest of the Dutch-owned ABC islands (Aruba and Bonaire form the A and B), may lack its neighbors’ beaches and dive sites, but its capital, Willemstad, ranks among the region’s most cosmopolitan cities. It’s the perfect destination for urbanites who’d rather discover a new cultural capital than lounge on a beach.

Why Go

For hiking Mount Christoffel, diving to shipwreck sites, and Dutch-flavored Willemstad (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
