Looking for (more) at-home activities to stave off boredom and embrace wanderlust? If Curaçao is on your list, this lineup of virtual destination-themed fun should be right up your alley.
Presented by Curaçao Tourist Board, users can check out workout videos on Instagram and enjoy new activities every few days. Expect culinary and cocktail demos, yoga and more.
Zumba: Nothing like a little dancing to get your heart racing and lift your mood. This high-energy workout is led by professional dancer and instructor Cristine Riguad, leading all levels of dancers out of their living room (mentally) and on to the dance floor.
Yoga: If low-intensity workouts are more your speed, Curaçao’s resident yogi Liberty Suares will lead a vinyasa flow.
Backyard Workout: Get outside with John and Raquel (fitness instructors and couple) as the Elite Fitness pair demonstrate high- and low-intensity moves from their own backyard.
Juicing: And not just any recipes, but immune-boosting creations. Now more than ever, would-be travelers are considering their health and welfare and, like the old adage says, you are what you eat. Herbalist Dinah Veeris offers juice remedies for common ailments, including immune-boosting ingredients.
Cocktail Demo: Once detoxed, you can re-tox with a Blue Curaçao cocktail recipe demo from Fabian Cleopa.
Culinary: Owner of Curaçao’s first farm-to-table restaurant Hofi Cas Cora, Femi Meaux guides viewers through her farm while sampling herbs and produce for her homemade quiche.
Desserts: For those of us that need something sweet, Chef Luigi Eduardo Chavarría shows off his pastry skills with a demonstration wannabe bakers may want to tune in for.
New programs will be introduced every few days on the tourism board’s Instagram account, so stay tuned for more recipes and activities, including interior design tips, all inspired by the vibrant culture and relaxing vibes of Curaçao.

There is no better place to celebrate the holidays this year than Wailea, Hawai’i. Look to Wailea Beach to witness Santa and his elves emerge from the ocean in a decorated Hawai’ian outrigger canoe stocked full of candy canes, ready to kick off the festivities. Some of Santa’s elves will even surf Hawai’i’s great waves to make their way to shore. The entrance will be nothing short of special as they land on pristine Wailea Beach in front of the Grand Wailea Resort. Kids can meet Santa and take photos with him before he makes his way toward the resort.
