Sunset waters is a very pleasant location. A nice rather small resort on a
bluff overlooking the Caribbean. The weather was very warm, 90F or so. Very
dry. Nor rain while we were there. Curacao has quite a dry desert type of
climate. Curacao does not have lush, verdant, tropical vegetation. The
accommodations are adequate. The food was included in my package. The food
was very good. The staff was attentive and concerned about our
requirements. The dive staff was very well qualified. The dive staff
informed me that the diving at Curacoa is about as good as it gets in the
Caribbean. Of course, every dive shop will tell you that. But I think that
it is a rather accurate statement. Currents were virtually absent. The
visibility was very good. Water temperature was 85F or so. No need for wet
suits. As far as the marine life, I would say typical Caribbean. Many
schools of smaller fish. No very large schools of medium sized fish. No
pelagic fishes were seen. My package was two tanks of boat diving and
unlimited shore diving. I did not do any shore diving. The dive boats are
very well maintained. The number of clients on the boats ranged from about
6 or 8 to about 15 or so. Not a cattle boat operation. Overall a very
pleasant experience. Nice easy diving. A very pleasant Caribbean dive
experience.
