We just got back from our vacation in Curacao. We went strictly to relax and snorkel. The house reef at Habitat Curacao was the best place we snorkeled all week. I will say we weren't disappointed anywhere we went, though. We also went to Playa Kalki, Playa Lagun, Sunset Waters (that's where we stayed), Cas Abao, Port Marie. Each location had something we liked. Saint Marie/Habitat Curacao had the best all around experience. We saw an eel, octopus, reef squid and all sorts of fish. The vis was good, but the coral was somewhat disappointing, not as colorful and alive as other islands we've been to… but the other reef life made it very enjoyable. We don't normally go back to a location/island a second time, but we would definitely consider coming back to Curacao, and we'd stay at the Habitat Curacao next time. We've snorkeled 14 islands so far; Curacao would be in the top 5, especially for snorkeling from the shore.
