Curaçao - “gay friendly” destination

Live and let live. That is the philosophy on the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao, which has just launched an alternate lifestyle website for visitors,ÊThe website is specifically developed to showcase the island as a “gay friendly” destination.ÊIt is a unique and in-depth resource for the gay traveler looking for a little help in navigating the island and knowing where to stay and what to do and see.

The Curaçao Tourist Board is committed to welcoming all visitors to the island and hope that this new integrated tool will help spread the word to the gay and lesbian community and encourage travel.

“We understand that travellers are concerned about how they will be welcomed and if their lifestyle choice is understood when visiting a destination,” commented Jim Hepple, director of tourism.

“This website not only shows that we are open to all walks of life, but that we embrace it and have attractions and hotels that specifically support the lifestyle.”
