Totally agree! We were worried it would be too much like Aruba, but it's not. (Nothing wrong with Aruba, mind you, it just wasn't for us. We know lots of folks enjoy it). Curacao isn't 'americanized', which is one thing we didn't like in Aruba. We didn't hate Aruba, we just wanted something other than what we could find in Florida. Curacao is greener than Aruba (though not as green as SXM, but we didn't expect it to be). We actually liked the landscape in Curacao -- it was like being in 2 different states at once. Beaches were much prettier than anything in Aruba and - at least while we were there - it was much less windy. JMHO too.
We were in Aruba for 3 weeks each of the last 2 years. Stayed in 2 distinct parts of the island. Couldn't find Balashi anywhere. Where did you get it? Even the man at the brewery said they don't export to Aruba? Send me the right way to the beer!
