About Your Trip
Raise a glass and toast to tasty times ahead with 2 fun and flavorful tours during this special adults-only DreamTrip. Start with a distillery tour to see how world-famous Blue Curacao is produced and learn how to mix your own signature cocktail, with an opportunity at the end to snap pics for Instagram glory.

What we love:
Your distillery tour and cocktail workshop kicks off with a guided walking tour, so you can experience historic Rif Fort, a floating bridge and Curacao’s lively Punda district from the ground up.
Curacao liqueur gets its distinct slightly sweet and slightly bitter taste from an important ingredient you won’t find anywhere else in the world — the unique Laraha orange, which grows exclusively on Curacao island!
Your fabulous resort features an infinity pool and an elevated “infinity beach” overlooking the Caribbean Sea, so no matter where you choose to take a refreshing dip during your stay, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views.
