Curaçao is the Vacation of the Summer!

Happy Travel Tuesday from Sunscape Resorts & Spas! You probably know of Curaçao as the tasty liqueur used in a variety of tropical cocktails for its orange flavor and vibrant blue hue. However, its namesake island is so much more—in fact, Curaçao is the perfect tropical paradise for travelers of all ages!

View of Sunscape Curaçao Resort & Spa.

Located about 40 miles off the coast of Venezuela, Curaçao is known for year-round perfect weather, a rich history, diverse culture and pristine beaches. Curaçao is outside of the hurricane belt and has a dry climate, with temperatures that typically stay in the 80s throughout the year. Visitors to this diverse island, home to around 60 different nationalities, will likely hear quite a few languages including Dutch, Spanish, French and Papiamentu, though nearly all residents are familiar with English as well.

Curaçao is also famous for its colonial Dutch-style architecture, specifically on the waterfront, called the “handelskade.” This stretch of pier, a UNESCO world-heritage site, is painted in brilliant, bright colors and truly unique to Curaçao. It’s a must-see for any traveler to the island!

No visit to Curaçao would be complete without a trip to its lively capital city of Willemstad, full of markets, museums, and quaint cafes. Willemstad is a fascinating juxtaposition of old and new, and also one of the busiest ports in the Caribbean, thanks to a thriving trade business.

Curaçao is also home to unparalleled natural beauty, with 38 sandy, white beaches, healthy coral reefs and an abundance of marine life. Sunscape Curaçao Resort, Spa & Casino, located on the island’s southern coast and just minutes from Willemstad, features an on-site reef, providing snorkelers with easy access to an incredible natural phenomenon! A stay at Sunscape Curaçao also includes all drinks and meals, a spa and on-site casino and is within walking distance to the Curaçao Sea Aquarium.

Guests explore the coral reef at Sunscape Curaçao Resort & Spa.

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo from Sunscape Resorts & Spas! How much do you know about this fun Mexican holiday? Though many people celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, the history behind it is often confused with Mexican Independence Day, which actually falls on September 16th.

Cinco de Mayo celebrations at Sunscape Curaçao Resort, Spa & Casino.

Instead, Cinco de Mayo occurred fifty years later and commemorates the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. A small, poorly-armed group of about 4,500 Mexican soldiers led by General Ignacio Zaragoza defeated the French Army, then considered one of the most powerful in the world, which outnumbered them by nearly two to one. The battle only lasted four hours before the Mexican forces were victorious. Cinco de Mayo as we know it today originated in Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to celebrate freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War.

Though the holiday is celebrated on a grander scale in the U.S. than Mexico, all public schools there are closed nationwide for Cinco de Mayo. Most Mexican Cinco de Mayo celebrations take place in the town of Puebla, where the battle occurred. The highlight is a parade featuring people dressed up as Mexican or French soldiers and sometimes there is even a reenactment of Mexico’s victory. Those portraying the Mexican soldiers walk armed with machetes and old-fashioned rifles while the French portrayers carry knapsacks with bottles of wine sticking out of them. The fiesta includes games, dances, mariachi music, colorful decorations, piñatas and fireworks.

Now that you’re up to snuff on Cinco de Mayo history, you’re ready to celebrate at Sunscape Resorts & Spas, where we’ll be going all out with traditional Mexican food, drinks, dancing, games and more. ¡Viva Mexico!

Five Ways to Go Green While on Vacation

At Sunscape Resorts & Spas, we are thrilled to offer Unlimited-Fun® getaways while maintaining a focus on measurable sustainability efforts. We are continuously committed to lessening our environmental impact and encourage all of our guests to do the same. It is all too easy to neglect our typical “green” habits and behaviors while on vacation. However, we have just as much of an impact on the environment when we are on vacation as we do at home. Below are five easy tips for going green while you’re on vacation.

The incredible natural scenery of Sunscape Sabor Cozumel, Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa and Sunscape Curacao Resorts & Spas.

  • Unplug everything: Some of the most important things you can do to go green on vacation start before you even leave your home! Over time, electric vampirism can make a big impact on both the environment and your electric bill. Before you leave for your trip, unplug everything: the TV, electronic chargers, computers, microwaves, clocks, printers, cable boxes and anything else you can find that plugs in to the wall. Standby power can account for up to 10 percent of your electric bill and many plugged-in items quickly add up. Why pay for electric consumption when you aren’t even home? Don’t forget to shut off the heat or air conditioner, or set the thermostat closer to the temperature outdoors, either!
  • Use biodegradable sunblock: The ingredients in chemical-based sunscreens can cause damage to already delicate coral reefs. If you plan on going in the water, be sure to choose a biodegradable or “reef-friendly” sunscreen. They are even mandatory in some areas of Cancun and Cozumel!
  • Shut down your hotel room: Just because you’re not in your own home paying for electricity isn’t a reason to leave the lights on all day. Shut off lights whenever you leave your room and use natural light whenever possible. Turn off your air conditioning whenever you leave the room. It eats up a whole lot of power in hot, tropical locations and a room or suite will cool down quickly as soon as you return and turn the A/C back on.
  • Buy local: If you’re exploring the area or on a day-trip, check out souvenirs from local artists and markets. You’ll find crafts and handiwork that are truly unique to your vacation locale and also support the local community.
  • Reuse towels and linens: Hardly anyone would wash their towels and bed linens after each use at home. There’s no need to do so at a resort, either. Reusing bath towels and linens saves money by reducing water, energy and detergent usage as well as labor.
All it takes are a few simple steps for your vacation to be just as green as your everyday life would be at home. See you soon at Sunscape Resorts & Spas!
