Re: Day trip to Curacao

Does anyone have any comments regarding making a day trip from Aruba to Curacao? We will be visiting Aruba (and the Caribbean) for the first time this November (we will be there 6 days). We thought maybe we would make a day trip but perhaps that isn't possible. The newest post I could find re this subject was 2011. Thought maybe someone had some more updated info for us. Thank-you!

yes possible

Insel airlines

aruba airlines

the problem being, is that although the islands are so close in proximity to each other, the airport experiences are long, eating into your time visiting curaçao. (immigration and customs take a bit of time)

it also is not an inexpensive day trip.

but there are many that have done it and do it.

my opinion is that if you only have 6 days in aruba, you may not want to deviate from that with a side trip to curaçao. wait til you can spend more time in each place.

Agree with Andrea - do it when you have more time to do so.

It is possible but 6 days in Aruba is not enough to take a 1-2 day trip to Curacao.

There are airlines that can take you but not reliable. You do not want to be delayed or stuck if you have to make your return trip to the US departing from Aruba.

Round trip tickets $ 250 pp and when departing Curacao an extra $ 20 airport tax.

Enjoy your six days in Aruba and leave Curacao for another trip.

Thank-you all for your comments... We will leave Curacao for next time and focus on Aruba. November can't come soon enough!
