Curacao Travel Health Advice

Curaçao has no tropical diseases like malaria (although mosquitoes can be a problem), and no vaccinations are necessary. Sunburn is common. A high standard of cleanliness means that gastro-intestinal complaints are rare; tap water is distilled from the sea and is safe to drink. There are a number of medical centres on the island and a modern and well-equipped hospital, but medical insurance is still recommended. All in all, Curacao is a very safe place to visit from a health point of view - just stay well hydrated and protect yourself from the sun.
