The island of Curacao (pronounced Cure-a-sow) is located in the southwestern Caribbean, between Aruba and Bonaire, just 35 miles north of Venezuela. The largest of the Netherlands Antilles, it is 38 miles long and between two and 8 miles wide.
Arid by Caribbean standards, Curacao has been somewhat untouched by tourism. First discovered by Europeans in 1499, the Dutch eventually took possession of Curacao in 1634. Curacao's deep port and protected shores made it attractive for Dutch commerce, including slave trade. Today Curacao's capital, Willemstad, is bustling with commerce and has been added to UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites.
