Curacao: Top Scuba Diving Travel Destination
An island nation just off of the coast of Venezuela, Curacao has long been in the shadow of its sister islands Bonaire and Aruba. The country’s uniquely “dutch” flavor provides exceptional topside appeal, but the scuba diving provides many unique opportunities. According to Richard Mitsoda of Maduro Dive Fanta-Seas, a leading travel company specializing in scuba diving vacations, Curacao provides a great value and great experiences. Nowhere else in the world can you dive a tugboat wreck and later that day dive an airplane wreck. Or, if you’re more into the Robinson Caruso-type adventure, a day trip to dive around the desolate volcanic rock called Klein Curacao might be in order.
