Island hopping in the Caribbean is possible all year round on Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao because they aren't in the notorious 'Hurricane Alley.' Enjoy summer temperatures and the advantages of not traveling during the rainy season, which is standard on other islands. Towards the fall, occasional light showers may occur; however, these are a refreshing cool down.
Bon Bini - Welcome to Bonaire! From the depths of the pure waters to the highest peaks of the Brandaris, you will feel the island's magic from the moment you arrive. Discover how peaceful Bonaire is and take it all in, leaving the stress from everyday life back at home. On Bonaire, the locals will welcome you with open arms, warmth, and friendliness!
The island is a magnet for water sports enthusiasts. Here you can practice kitesurfing, windsurfing, or snorkeling because of the area's excellent natural conditions. Bonaire has spruced up in recent years and made a name for itself as the best diving destination in the Caribbean. Thanks to the corals' active protection, Bonaire's underwater world is unique, beautiful, and well preserved.
The island is one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean, and sightseeing should be on your list. Witness unique sunsets, visit the beautiful Washington Slagbaai National Park, or visit the south of the island. Grab a map of Bonaire and explore the most beautiful beaches.
At the island’s center is the capital, Kralendijk. Kralendijk is a vibrant and colorful Caribbean city where large cruise ships sometimes dock and where visitors will feel right at home. Don't forget your camera so you can capture Bonaire’s beauty!

Three nights with breakfast on Kralendijk, Bonaire
Curaçao is the island of sights and sounds, with something for everyone - from sports fanatics to sun worshipers and beach lovers. Expect national parks with exotic plant and animal life, ancient caves with millennia-old stalagmites, and a beautiful, unspoiled underwater world with colorful corals. The smallest island in the southern Caribbean is about 60 kilometers from Venezuela.
Willemstad, the harbor and capital city, is a charming colonial-style town, a big city and a small village at the same time, that offers plenty of shopping opportunities. With its 750 candy-colored colonial houses, it’s even on the World Heritage List because of these Old-Amsterdam style houses. A unique attraction is the Queen Emma Bridge, used by many visitors and locals of the city as a place to rest and linger. Sit on a bench and enjoy the view of the large ships that cross the canal.
In Curaçao, you will find beautiful little bays rather than white sand beaches. Many of the beaches in these bays are entirely natural. The unique flora and the colorful fauna of this heaven on Earth will make your stay an unforgettable experience.
Travel time from Curaçao Airport - Hotel Curaçao: about 20 minutes / approx. 13 km
Three nights with breakfast in Willemstad, Curaçao
Aruba doesn't require any convincing as the perfect vacation destination. Its 52 weeks of sunshine, 28-degree-celsius weather almost year-round, and eleven kilometers of white sandy beach (which has won international awards) make this a bucket list destination for all types of travelers. The 140,000 happy Arubans welcome their guests with smiles and warmth, with intentions to make the next few days on their home island a trip you will never forget.
The island skillfully combines two worlds: the cosmopolitan with excellent infrastructure and European standards, and traditional Caribbean flair that radiates its charm.
If you are in Aruba, you should also visit the Arikok National Park. It occupies about one-fifth of the island and houses historical sites of places where Aruba's first settlers left their mark. Rock paintings of the Caquetio Indians are estimated to be 1000 years old. Hike through the park’s well-marked trails and adventure to Mount Jamanota, the island's highest point.
Aruba's flora and fauna are unique, and you will find several aloe vera plantations. The conditions of the Caribbean are optimal for the cultivation of medicinal plants with moisturizing properties. Intense sun and Aruba's desert environment provide excellent conditions for the plants. Experience exciting insights into the impact and the cultivation at one of the museums.
You will always find something to do in Aruba for every type of vacation. The island is a paradise for a variety of activities on land and sea. Apart from Palm Beach, Eagle Bay, and the capital Oranjestad, where you will find many restaurants and shops, the island also offers many adventures in nature.
