Not only is Curaçao water safe to drink, it is of the finest quality.
In the old times, inhabitants used to rely on rain for drinking water, but as this was never enough, the Indians made “xagueys” (wells) in the soft ground along the southern bays. Spanish and Dutch conquerors found drinking water near the Schottegat and transported it in water butts to “The Point” (Punda). As the population of our island grew -- and because the industrial and economical development of any country relies on water -- more was needed, and the so-called Water Plantations came into being.
Around 1890, American wind turbines were imported for irrigation of the land. In 1928, a seawater distillery for production of drinking water was put into production. This Curacao distillery, now known as Aqualectra, produces water of excellent quality. It is soft, contains no chloride and little calcium, is tasteless and odorless, and has a good bacteriological composition. Very safe to drink.
