Willemstad's Historic DistrictCuracao is one of the Dutch-settled ABC islands, just off the north coast of South America (Venezuela). Along with its sister islands Aruba and Bonaire, Curacao has a blend of cultures including Dutch, African, native American (Arawak), Spanish and West Indian. The capital of Willemstad has been named an UNESCO World Heritage site, due to its beautiful Dutch-influenced architecture which has been carefully preserved.
