Shopping. If you like to shop, you'll love Curacao. Having just gotten married, we were done jewelry shopping for the year, but still have a good time enjoying a drink at a cafe along the river. The city is very pretty and the people very friendly. Unfortunately, Curacao is also a major oil refining island, so your approach to the island consists of the view of a oil refinery and the island always has petroleum smell in the air. Still, very much worth the trip.
