10 Must-Dive Destinations For 2019

They say you’re either an ocean person or a mountain person. Myself? I’m all ocean, all the time. To me it’s still one of the great unknowns. It’s so close, and so much a part of our planet, and yet we know so little about it. We have better images of Venus, Mars and the moon than we do of the ocean floor. And with adventure travel being one of 2018’s hottest trends – a trend that will certainly not be going away any time soon – more and more travelers are looking for these unknown experiences to push their limits. Experiences that keep them active – mentally and physically. Experiences that open their eyes to something new – have you ever seen a nudibranch up close? It’s incredible. Experiences that tear them away from their phones and our uber connected world and put them back in touch with nature....

Curaçao Promoted as “Riachuelo Destination” in Over 300 Brazilian Stores

Premier Brazilian department-store chain Riachuelo recently launched its summer 2019 campaign. The photo shoot—a team effort of 12 models and 28 professional Brazilian cameramen, photographers, production directors and more—took place here in Curaçao in September of this year. Riachuelo’s 2019 summer collection has been named the Resort Collection, and is aimed at the young woman.
