A Strong Dutch Influence
From the time they first established themselves as the island's ruling class, the Dutch have had a major impact on every level of society. Today, the legal and educational systems and the government are all Dutch-inspired. Dutch remains the language of instruction in schools and is widely spoken in government and business.
Visitors from Europe make up close to 40% of Curaçao’s tourist traffic, the island being especially popular with visitors from Holland.
