With a diverse heritage spanning 55 different cultures, Curaçao is a country that strongly values safety and respect for diversity, being considered the most LGBT+ friendly destination in the Caribbean.

Frequented by personalities such as Xuxa, Eliana, Preta Gil and Dominique Jackson (Elektra in “Pose”), the island was the scene of a vow renewal ceremony for Ludmilla e Brunna Gonçalves and is where, for example, Ivete Sangalo vacations away from the spotlight, strolling peacefully through downtown Willemstad or exploring some of the country’s 35 beaches with coves.
