Why It’s a Deal According to a recent search on Kayak, the lowest round-trip fares between Newark and Curaçao for travel in, say, late June/early July start from $551 with taxes (American Airlines). Add to that about $257 per person, including hotel taxes, for three nights at the Renaissance Curaçao Resort & Casino, and you’d be paying a total of $808 for airfare and accommodations. For $64 less, this Continental Airlines Vacations package covers airfare, three nights’ hotel, round-trip airport-hotel transfers, fuel surcharges, and all taxes and fees.
More Optional activities include a treasure tour by Jeep ($94 per person), a historical/cultural tour (from $61 per person), and an east and west island tour ($61 per person). Additional nights at the Renaissance Curaçao Resort & Casino start from $63 per person per night.
