Will we be able to experience the vibe of our island life punctuated by music, live entertainment and culinary festivals of all sorts… days and nights nourished by the special events so numerous on Curaçao? Today we do not have the answers, but we already  know the events and festivals are cancelled due to Covid-19.
Regretfully, Curaçao will not have the flavor of tourism it expected this year visiting an island usually so vibrant and pulsating with all kinds of musical, sporting and culinary events and festivities this time of year. We all know that the priority is health and safety! But as far as progress made in Curaçaos’ tourism sector and maintaining the economy on this island, I cannot bring myself to use a word other than “sad”. Things were looking up for Curaçao pre-Covid…
At the time I am writing this, the Curaçao Government announced that Curaçao is almost Covid-free ( 2 active cases under observation on the island) – We hope and pray that alternative solutions will be considered soon to at least offer the local community opportunities, enabling them to remain optimistic, and giving everyone a chance to live it up again!
We at EC will do our outmost to keep you informed with updates on the current situation, and we impatiently wait for borders to open and regulate new ways to welcome you here on the rock! In the meantime, stay healthy!
