Doing an internship on Curaçao, who doesn't dream of that! At least we can understand it very well. Nice few months doing an internship in Curaçao and enjoy the sun, sea and beach. To make your internship on Curaçao run as smoothly as possible, we have a number do's and don'ts collected for you!
DO: Go enjoy Happy Hours on Curaçao!
Yes, you have them here on Curaçao a lot: the Happy Hours. We have made an overview of the best happy hours on the island and you should definitely visit them. During your internship on Curaçao you have enough time to visit them. Who knows, you might do an internship at a happy hour tent and you can serve your housemates.
DON?T: Arrange everything at the last minute
From the moment you know that you can do an internship on Curaçao, it is imperative that you get to work! Call in CuraStage and then you don't have to do much, but start arranging your internship in time. Nothing is more annoying than being late and missing out on this unique opportunity. Everything is slower in Curaçao than in other countries. You may think: ?that won't be too bad?. Well, we can say with certainty that it is not easy. Where you think that can be arranged online, it is therefore not possible. So you go doing an internship in Curaçao? Hopi nice, but engage us in time so that we can arrange everything.
DO: Always apply sunscreen
In the Netherlands you can sometimes sit in the sun for a few hours without burning. In Curaçao it works slightly differently. The sun is much more persistent here and you literally get blisters on your skin if you have been in the sun unprotected for too long. And don't forget, the sun actually shines on Curaçao every day!
DON'T: Don't go out alone at night
We often get the question whether doing an internship on Curaçao is safe. Yes, it certainly is, but we advise never to go out alone in the evening. You don't know what kind of audience you will encounter and alone you are just a lot more vulnerable. Go out with your housemates and make it a beautiful evening. We always say: Together out, Together at home!
DO: Fuikdag and North Sea Jazz on Curaçao!
In the month of January you always have Fuikdag and this is really a super cool party. You sail with a boat to ?Fuik? and there is music all day long and everyone floats on the sea. It's a cool experience! Are you seasick? Don't panic, you can take a Primatour and then you can continue partying. In addition, you always have the North Sea Jazz festival on Curacao at the end of August. This is three days of partying but not just partying. This is where the biggest artists come to perform. Hop, go with that banana!
DON'T: Don't expect hot showers
On Curaçao it is not standard that you have hot water. You can therefore assume that you are with your housing do not have hot water. This sounds worse than it is. Because the water pipes are largely above the ground, the water is therefore heated by the sun all day. If you shower in the afternoon or early evening, you have warm water and later in the evening lukewarm water. In short, you will survive!
DO: For a fun tour or beach gear, go to Fun Curaçao
Because of course you have to take a lot of stuff with you in your suitcase, we can give you the tip, you don't have to bring beach stuff. You have on Curaçao Fun Curacao and they rent out all beach stuff for next to nothing. From snorkel sets to BBQs for the beach, you'll find it there! Do you want to do a nice tour during your internship on Curaçao about the island and discover hidden places? Then you can arrange this at Fun Curaçao because they do cheap tours on Curaçao.
DON'T: Miss Happy Hours
Yes this one is perhaps the most important because this will save you a lot of money and you will meet nice people. Doing an internship on Curaçao is of course a serious thing, but sometimes you also need to be able to relax. You can do this in the form of visiting Happy Hours on Curaçao. You can then order cheap drinks with your housemates and have a nice evening. So missing a Happy Hour is really a DON?T!
DO: Arrange your internship via CuraStage
