On Curacao, the live and let live attitude of the Dutch has found a home in the warm waters of the Caribbean. The cosmopolitan port of Willemstad, with its excellent restaurants and unique Dutch colonial architecture painted in bright Caribbean colors, is about 45 minutes from the resort. You'll visit for the main Carnival parade on Tuesday night, with VIP seating in the stands.
Located on the uncrowded west side of the island, Oasis Coral Estate Beach, Dive & Wellness Resort features an excellent house reef for easy shore diving right off its own beach, two pools, internet access, fitness center, and two onsite restaurants.
Curacao's reefs are healthy and protected by the National Curacao Underwater Park, and the PADI Coral Divers dive shop is located right on the hotel premises. You'll dive two tanks from our private boat for six mornings plus unlimited shore diving.
If you've dreamed of learning to dive but haven't yet had the opportunity, this is your chance! You can complete the PADI Open Water scuba course on this trip and learn to dive in invitingly clear, warm water. Divers who are already certified can earn their Advanced Open Water qualification here.
