Night diving is good and there is a tugboat wreck and a Cessna aeroplane. The best wreck is a cargo ship the Superior Producer in 100ft of water, perhaps Curacao's best dive. If you are there in September or October try and witness the coral sponges spawn on night dives ! There is a dive with cars and trucks from 1946 so you can see you will not get bored.
The weather is good year round here.
