The ABC islands, Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao are part of the Lesser Antilles, situated just off the coast of Venezuela and outside the Caribbean hurricane belt. Aruba is a windswept island of white sand beaches and blue-green waters. The island is known for its one-of-a-kind cuisine, a blend of Dutch, Caribbean, and Spanish influences. Bonaire is a quiet island, undeveloped and a diver’s paradise due to the beauty of its protected reef and shore diving options. Curacao’s capital, Willemstad, is one of the few UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Caribbean and a treat for the eyes, with its sherbet-colored Dutch colonial architecture.
