People and culture

Curaçao is a melting pot with more than 50 nationalities. Afro-Caribbeans make up the majority of the population of 150.000 inhabitants. One result of the historic slave trade is a rich cultural heritage, embraced today by islanders and visitors alike. To the present day, Afo-Caribbean traditions continue to shape Curaçao. These Afro-Caribbean influences can, for example, be found in the Papiamentu-language, Tambu (curacao blues), the food, religion and spirituality.
