Temperatures on Curacao

The once Dutch Caribbean Island has a semi-arid climate, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't pack a sweater.  Evening lows in the 70s are common; couple that with the tradewinds, and many visitors feel under-dressed in tank tops and shorts.

As you are planning your Curacao vacation, take a look at the chart below.  The listing of average high and low temperatures will help you to not only determine which month of the year you want to visit, but will help guide you in what clothing to pack.  Take notice that the coolest months of the year are January and February, while July through September experience the highest temperatures.
