    This is my 5th trip to Curacao and I've always stayed in Boca Sami at an AirBNB or a studio apartment I stumbled into for my first trip. Boca Sami is about 1/2 way up the island so it is easier to the western sites as well as make it to Wilemstat

    Ahhh it's tempting isn't it. . . in the interest of full disclosure, I've already spent 5 weeks on the Big Island, Hawai'i

    You owe us a daily report with pictures then :)

    Diving Hawaii this time of the year is a nipple raising experience. You will need a 7mm suit. I was there circa 2003 in February and dove on the Kona Aggressor and then on to Maui, exciting but cold.

    I wish you a safe and enjoyable trip with lots of awesome diving!!!

    I am very happy to hear the PCR test is the only one required. I had assumed that Curacao, being a Netherlands Antilles island, would have the same protocol as Bonaire, thoroughly discussed in another thread. Hopefully the current Covid testing will get no worse, and perhaps loosen for those that have been vaccinated. Thank you for your quick reply.

    A rashguard top only for me in Hawaii. . . I did wear a 5/3 shortie on the Manta dive and on the Pelagic dive though. For both of those, there is really no movement, so even the most hearty will get a triffle chilly. If you want your nipples to get hard, try diving in Northern British Columbia (aka God's Pocket). Even with a drysuit, at 42-44 oF on the bottom, things get chilly.
