Flying over Curacao

Karel Tomei

Curacao is a magical island. The hundred thousand tourists who annually visit this small piece of the Caribbean will certainly agree. It all seems so hospitable and inviting from the air and from the water that you can hardly wait to set foot on land.That is a big compliment for such a relatively small island. For if we are honest, Curacao, with a surface area of 444 square kilometres, can hardly be considered more than a speck on the globe and, apart from the azure blue seas which wash its shores, has only one major site worth seeing: the historic centre of Willemstad, which was placed by UNESCO on the World Heritage list in 1997. Aerial photographer Karel Tomeï, who has visited and photographed so many countries, was initially troubled by this fierce attack on his retina. ‘The colours exploded in front of me,’ he explains. What’s more, he was also astounded by the changes the island had undergone since his previous visit, now more than forty years ago. ‘Then everything was still very pure. It had the simple joy of a developing country. There are still traces to be found of that poverty, such as poor houses and ramshackle fishing huts. And a nasty smell still hangs round the refinery. But the island is indisputably more prosperous.’

Exercise normal security precautions

The decision to travel is your responsibility. You are also responsible for your personal safety abroad. The purpose of this Travel Advice is to provide up-to-date information to enable you to make well-informed decisions.

Crime

Petty crime can occur. Avoid unpopulated areas or unpatrolled beaches after dark. Check with local authorities to find out which beaches are patrolled. Vehicle theft occurs frequently.

Ensure that personal belongings, passports and travel documents are secure at all times.

Road safety

Major roads are in good condition, but road signs are rare. Wandering animals are a hazard.

Public transportation

Public transportation is reliable. As taxis do not have meters, it is recommended that you agree on a fare prior to departure.

Consult our Transportation Safety page in order to verify if national airlines meet safety standards.

Health

Related Travel Health Notices
Consult a health care provider or visit a travel health clinic preferably six weeks before you travel.
Vaccines

Travellers visiting regions with typhoid risk, especially those exposed to places with poor sanitation should consider getting vaccinated.

Crowded conditions can increase your risk of certain illnesses. Remember to wash your hands often and practice proper cough and sneeze etiquette to avoid colds, the flu and other illnesses.

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV are spread through blood and bodily fluids; practise safer sex.

HIV

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that attacks and impairs the immune system, resulting in a chronic, progressive illness known as AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome). 

Practise safe sex while travelling, and don’t share needles, razors, or other objects which could transmit infection.

Remember that HIV can also be spread through the use of unsterile medical equipment during medical and dental procedures, tattooing, body piercing or acupuncture. Diseases can also be spread though blood transfusions and organ transplantation if the blood or organs are not screened for HIV or other blood-borne pathogens.


Medical services and facilities

Medical services and facilities

Keep in Mind...

The decision to travel is the sole responsibility of the traveller. The traveller is also responsible for his or her own personal safety.

Be prepared. Do not expect medical services to be the same as in Canada. Pack a travel health kit, especially if you will be travelling away from major city centres.

You are subject to local laws. Consult our Arrest and Detention page for more information.

Canada and the Netherlands are signatories to the European Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons. This enables a Canadian imprisoned in the Netherlands to request a transfer to a Canadian prison to complete a sentence. The transfer requires the agreement of both Canadian and Dutch authorities.

Dual citizenship

Canadian citizens who have dual citizenship may be subject to Dutch obligations such as taxes. To determine your status, contact the Royal Netherlands Embassy or one of its consulates.

Illegal activities

Gun control is enforced, and penalties for possession, use or trafficking of illegal drugs are strict.

It is strictly prohibited to export pieces of coral or seashells.

Driving laws

An International Driving Permit is recommended, but Canadian driving licences are accepted.

Traffic drives on the right. Turning right on red lights is prohibited.

You should purchase insurance when renting vehicles, motorboats or jet skis. Ensure that you obtain detailed information, in writing, regarding personal liability.

Money

The currency of Bonaire is the U.S. dollar (USD).

Credit cards and U.S. dollar traveller's cheques are widely accepted.

Investments

If you are interested in purchasing property or making other investments, seek legal advice from appropriate professionals in Canada and in the Caribbean before making commitments. Disputes arising from such activities could be prolonged and costly to resolve.
