Curacao Self-Catering Snorkeling Accommodations?

by Louise Robinson

We are hoping to visit Curacao in late April or early May this year and we are looking to find a good self-catering snorkeling accommodation. We last visited in 2007 and stayed at Sunset Waters Resort (now closed) at Santa Martha. I have been looking at apartments and villas in Lagun and Cas Abao and wondered if anyone had stayed in these areas and what the snorkeling was like. We will rent a car to drive to snorkel spots but do like to be able to snorkel straight from our accommodation. I know the areas east of Willemstad are suggested for best snorkel spots, but struggling to find self-catering accommodation in that area, any suggestions?

Many thanks.

Snorkeling in Curacao
by: Nicole & Galen

Hi Louise, we are currently working on the second edition of the Curacao Snorkeling Guide eBook. It will be released in March. Our current edition is still quite valid, but the update will have more up to date info. Both Playa Lagun and Playa Cas Abou snorkeling spots are described in our eBook along with every other snorkeling spot on the island. That may help you decide on a place to stay.

Maybe others have suggestions for accommodations with snorkeling in Curacao.

Self-catering Snorkeling Accommodations in Curacao
by: Richard

Hi, in answer to your question about self-catering snorkeling accommodations, we are currently at the Lagoon Ocean Resort in Playa Lagun in Curacao. This is our fourth time here, and it’s great. There are stairs from the resort directly to Playa Lagun, probably the calmest beach to snorkel on the island (though the past couple of days the seas have been a little rough). You can rent an entire bungalow for about $200 per day or less for a shared bungalow.

This is a great place to also do night snorkeling. We saw octopus, squid, lobsters, moray eels, crabs, shrimp on our night snorkeling here. The beach is lit up with floodlights so that you will feel safe entering and exiting the water.
