Curacao Weddings – What to Do Beyond the “I Do’s”
For those couples who intend to be proactive about organizing group outings or making recommendations to guests, here are our top experiences around the island.
In our opinion, there’s no better way to truly bask in the wonder of the Caribbean landscape, than by peeking into the life of the colorful marine life. Let your eyes widen in amazement at the diversity of fish and marine life. A snorkeling outing can easily be arranged through your resort. For the most adventurous of your guests, you can also recommend scuba diving, which is especially magnificent around the coast of Curacao. For any guests staying long enough, there are scuba certification courses as well, which can also be arranged through your resort.
A Guided Beach-Hopping Day
Seeing as how Curacao is an island, you can imagine how many spectacular beaches there are. For all the beachcombers attending your wedding, a day spent touring the most magnificent beaches of them all will be a dream come true. We know you’ll love any beach, but there are a select few that are unbelievably idyllic.
Adventure to Klein Curacao
Unbeknownst to many, there’s a tiny, deserted, island about a two-hour boat ride off of the coast. There’s nothing on the island except a small lighthouse, an old shipwreck, and occasionally sea turtles. You’ll have the entire island to yourselves, getting a glimpse of what nature is like without humans around. It’s quite the all-day adventure, one that your wedding guests will be telling tales of for years to come!
World-Class Golfing With Awe-Inspiring Views
What’s better than amazing views of the sparkling Caribbean? Those same views while playing a satisfying round of golf. Santa Barbara Resort & Spa boasts the #1 ‘Best Caribbean Golf Course’ 2018 as voted by the readers of USA Today. No need to take their word for it, though, discover the course for yourself! No doubt more than a few of your guests are avid golf players, and helping them make tee time reservations will get everyone even more excited for the wedding!
Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Willemstad
The capital of Curacao is Willemstad, which is a colorful town sitting on the edge of the water known for its colorful colonial architecture. Curacao is a Dutch constituency, and many of the buildings in Curacao are Dutch in style and design. The city also boasts the iconic floating bridge known as Queen Emma Bridge. Within Willemstad, you’ll find a myriad of delicious restaurants, street food, markets, shopping, museums, and locals going about their day. Visiting Willemstad is a great way to get to know the island culture a little more.
Give your guests even more reasons to get excited about taking a trip to the Caribbean to celebrate your union. Some guests may choose to do all five experiences; others may stick with just one or two, and some none. It doesn’t matter what they choose. You may wish to arrange group outings or have the resort draw up an adventure and activities list for your guests. Without a doubt, your wedding guests will speak of the fun times they had on Curacao long after the trip ends!
