Time For a Girlfriend Getaway? Head to Curacao For The Trip of a Lifetime

Gut-splitting laughter. Memories you’ll be telling your future (or current) children time and again. All the wine, chocolate, cocktails, and food.

Ahhh, a girlfriends getaway. Quite possibly one of the most satisfying types of vacations in existence. No experience is quite as exciting and sweet as vacationing with your girls.

Though the girlfriends getaway itself is always fabulous, it isn’t always glamorous or fun to plan the trip. You want to spend your time together relaxing and having fun, not worrying about planning or figuring out logistics, right? If that’s the case, we have the perfect destination in mind for you – Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort on the Caribbean island of Curacao.

Less famous than some of the Caribbean’s other islands, Curacao is a delightful respite from everyday life and is less touristy and vacationer-clad than many of its neighbors.

A History Worth Savoring – How Curacao Liqueur Came About

When it comes to the island of Curacao and cocktails, the story begins with a certain blue liqueur. A blue liqueur that isn’t originally blue in color, but we’ll get to that later.

There’s just something about Caribbean islands and cocktails, right? It must have to do with the vacation vibes in such destinations, and the delightfully warm and sunny weather year-round.

Yes, that’s exactly it. The natural climate of Curacao, and the Caribbean in general is conducive to growing the produce needed for the iconic cocktail alcohols many of us have come to know and love.

For The Ultimate Curacao Vacation Experience, Seek Out Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort

In the mood to start planning your next trip or vacation? With spring and summer break happening soon, there’s no better time to consider where you might want to jet off too!

Keep in mind, there’s a difference between a trip and a vacation. Typically speaking,  a trip is visiting somewhere with some sort of purpose, other than relaxing, i.e. visiting family, exploring a new destination, learning about a new culture, business, etc.

A vacation typically means one wishes to go someplace beautiful and warm, where total and complete relaxation awaits. A trip is going to Peru and visiting Machu Picchu. A vacation is jetting to the island of Curacao and relaxing at a luxurious resort. Both are fantastic options! It’s just a matter of choosing which one you desire.

Often times, vacationers-to-be think they’re going on vacation, but because of one mistake, end up having more of a trip. What mistake is that?

Not staying at a hotel or resort that is a vacation within itself.
