Curacao VERY friendly people

Jump to last reply

I have seen a few isolated posts mentioning that the Curacao people are not friendly. I would like to say this....I took my new wife (we got married in Oct.2002) to Curacao for the first time. She fell in love with the island and could not believe how FRIENDLY the people were ! Everywhere she went..all the people she met (from the immigration lady who filled out her immigration form for her because we forgot to get one on the plane, to the waiters...the locals on the streets, etc, etc. People were so friendly and sincere when speaking with them. If you come across with the pompous attitude of "I'm from the USA...the biggest superpower in the world" then forget it...the people will crap on you (I would do too if I were in their shoes) BUT..if you respect them and are polite, like anyone would want to be treated, they will go out of their way to make you happy. Be sincere and friendly and they will go above and beyond in helping you out. My wife fell in love with the people...the locals and the Dutch. I too was impressed....it hasn't changed...if anything, they are more friendly than ever.
