This fall, LGBTQ travelers can escape to Curaçao’s PRIDE Festival, an annual celebration of love and acceptance from October 1st to the 15th. All are invited to join in on the transformative and ‘dushi’ festivities as you march, learn, and party with the LGBTQ community from all over the Caribbean. From colorful parties to drag brunches, there is no shortage of celebrations occurring throughout the two weeks of PRIDE including the must-experience, annual ‘Pride Walk’ where locals and visitors alike walk from Riffort to a grand celebration at Rainbow Park in Wilhelmina Plaza. Don’t forget to pack every color of the rainbow as this year’s theme is ‘Live in Color’ to signify coloring outside the lines of society and seeing the beauty of being your authentic self.
Looking to be at the heart of all the action? Book a stay at Avila Beach Hotel, the oldest hotel on the island, which is a uniquely central, yet beachfront luxury oasis. Offering guests the perfect home base for Curaçao Pride with luxurious and modern accommodations, an authentic soul, and countless photo-worthy hotspots. Avila encourages travelers to come as they are; especially as they were the first hotel in Curaçao to become a member of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA).
