Curaçao - under water

You can snorkel and dive almost everywhere on Curaçao. Get yourself a free map of the island at your hotel and find a complete listing of snorkeling and diving places. Some locations will surprise you because of their proximity to major people water activity such as Mambo beach. We would advise you to get 5-6 water-resistant single-use cameras and bring them with you on the island - it will save you money and, most importantly, time of finding them on the island. We did not take time to identify fish species that can be seen below. We will update whenever possible.
