Curacao Schools

Hi All,

Last fall we were in Curacao (our 3rd trip)during the month of October. During the week we were there the local children were off of school for the week. As a result, some of our favorite places, like Porto Mari were very crowded with school children. Not my idea of a nice quiet vacation for two.

We are considering another trip this fall, possibly mid-October. However, before booking the week I wanted to find out what week the school children will be off this fall so as not to book our trip at the same time.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know the exact date yet, but usually it is the second week of October schools are closed for one week (say around 8-15 October). So plan your trip after the 15th.

Thanks Els,

I seem to recall last year the time off of school coincided with the Regatta in Bonaire. Is that normally the case?

the Bonaire regatta is 8 - 14 October, so I guess school holiday is in the same period, the second week of October.
