Curaçao was part of the Netherlands Antilles and has been an officially independent country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands since 2010. This means that you invest in a tropical location in the Caribbean, but benefit from a stable economy that is supported by the EU member state of the Netherlands. In addition, the local currency, the Antillean Guilder (ANG), is continuously linked by the Central Bank of Curacao and Sint Maarten to the stable value of the USD, so that the macroeconomic risks of your investment are nil.
Curacao is located right next to the island of Aruba, which is well known to most international tourists and investors. More and more Americans and Canadians are discovering the distinctive, authentic character of Curacao and we see this development reflected in the more than exponentially rising occupancy rate of holiday accommodations and the price increase in prices within the tourist real estate sector, ie holiday homes.
In addition, investing in a holiday villa or apartment offers you a great return on investment and the pleasure of a second home located in a wonderful, tropical holiday destination.
The value of the tourist real estate in the tourist epicenter of Curaçao, called Jan Thiel, has increased by an average of 10% per year over the past 12 years, without showing a year of depreciation. The reason is the annually increasing number of tourists. Currently, the occupancy averages 46,000 tourist visitors per month, 13% more than a year ago (March 2022). Where previously 80% of all tourist visitors came from the Netherlands, we see this number fall relatively compared to an increase in American and Canadian tourists. This development is accompanied by a growing interest from American investors who increasingly see the attractive sides of an investment in a holiday villa or holiday apartment on Curacao. In addition to being an attractive holiday destination, an investment in Curaçao with an average investment volume of USD 1,000,000 to USD 4,000,000 offers a gross return on investment of 10-18% on an annual basis.
