Curacao & San Juan Questions

Jump to last reply

My DH and I are planning a 2004 vacation based on our Marriott Rewards points. We have decided on Curacao for 7 nights (St. Kitts was a close second ... maybe next time) and we could use some planning help. Right now I mostly need info on timing the trip ... will be looking for more specific info on restaurants and snorkel spots ect closer to the actual trip. Thanks in advance for any help!

Curacao Questions -

What is this best time of year, esp. for snorkeling visibility (we love to snorkel and will be taking a day trip to Bonaire)?

Bugs? Are insects either on the beach (sand flea types) or when dining outside (gnat types) a particular problem at any time of the year? If so is it just at particular times like dusk?

Can anyone estimate a reasonable food budget? We generally do a light breakfast at the hotel and look for inexpensive lunches but more upscale dinners w/ appetizers, desserts and wine.

San Juan questions -

I haven't done much flight research yet but we thought we might spend 2 nights in San Juan on the way down. Does anyone have any advice on the flight schedules for doing this ... any days of the week that are best for going to/from Curacao by way of San Juan?

We were thinking the San Juan Marriott but there is also a Courtyard in Isla Verde ... any comments on these?
