ABC Islands (Lesser Antilles)

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.
