By Kach Umandap February 24th, 2017 Posted in Caribbean Travel Blog, Destination, Travel Blog No comments

We made the most out of our Latin America adventure and headed to Curacao, a beautiful island in the Caribbean. This is actually a haven for all underwater lovers as there are a lot of coral reefs and amazing marine species. Thus, if you want to go scuba diving, choosing to visit Curacao is no short of a brilliant idea.

Why Scuba Lodge, Curacao is Perfect for a Caribbean VacationDuring our short visit to Curacao, we stayed in this lively, lovely and interesting property called Scuba Lodge. This is located in the Pietermaai District, known to be one of the most vibrant places in Willemstad.

In this area, you would find a lot of old buildings which are being restored to its former beauty. While some of it are still in progress, its stunning imperfections gave the whole town its irresistible charm. If you would notice, we took loads of photos with the old buildings serving as our backdrop. Well, why wouldn’t we? For a time, I felt like a fashion blogger posing another #ootd!
