Curacao Travel Health Advice
Curaçao has no tropical diseases like malaria (although mosquitoes can be a problem), and no vaccinations are necessary, although a vaccination for hepatitis A should be considered. Proof of a yellow fever vaccination is necessary for those arriving from infected areas. Sunburn is common. 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.
