Aruba, a tiny Dutch Caribbean island off the coast of Venezuela, has dry, sunny weather, blond beaches and gentle surf. Constant trade winds bring cool breezes and cause the divi-divi trees to slope southwesterly. European influence shows in architecture that features Dutch gables painted in tropical pastels. It’s also evident in language, with English, Dutch and Spanish spoken alongside the local tongue, Papiamento.


Bonaire, an island municipality of the Netherlands, lies off Venezuela’s coast in the southern Caribbean. Its reef-lined coast is protected by Bonaire National Marine Park. Beyond its rich marine life, the island shelters lizards, donkeys and birds within its immense Washington Slagbaai National Park, marked by beaches, lagoons, caverns and desert-like hills.


Curaçao, a Dutch Caribbean island, is known for its beaches tucked into coves and its expansive coral reefs rich with marine life. The capital, Willemstad, has pastel-colored colonial architecture, floating Queen Emma Bridge and the sand-floored, 17th-century Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue. It’s also a gateway to western beaches like Blue Bay, a popular diving site.

Fast Ferry Service

An incredible experience for you all.

The government announced a “fast ferry service” between the ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire & Curacao).

The fast ferry that will be implemented in Aruba is a transportation system that’s already being used successfully for over 20 years in the Canary island.

According to infrastructure minister, the harbour for the fast ferry will be constructed in San Nicolas. The minister signed a Memorandum of Understanding with RDA (refinery di Aruba) to allow legal access to an area within the refinery back to the government to build the harbour for the fast ferry.

The ferry can transport between 300 – 400 passengers including 80 cargo trucks and cars.

It will be a major boost for the economy of the island, but especially for the district of

San Nicolas, since the rehabilitation of the refinery has been put on hold for an undefined period of time.

The ferry will depart from Aruba, and reach Curacao within 2 hours. It will then continue to Bonaire, return to Curacao and Aruba on the same day.

The project is a collaboration and understanding between ABC Islands and the Dutch Kingdom.

The ferry will benefit the islands in many ways, for example having a faster way of transportation for cargo between the Aruba, Bonaire & Curacao.

The project will take between 2-3 years to complete.
