Why pay first class rates and

Face it. Most hotels are geared toward
the younger crowd so you gel that
neglected. unwanted feeling. But now there's
one hotel that wants you.

.5:0#0.:

there's enough to keep them
oohing and aahing for days
on end.
Situated 34 miles north of
Caracas, Venezuela, Cu-
racao has a superb year-
round climate, excellent ho-
tels, fine restaurants, and
abundance of unspoiled in-
timate beaches and coves
tucked along its shoreline
and some of the finest duty-
free shopping this side of
Hong Kong.

In the middle of this ur-
ban palette is the oldest
synagogue in the Western
Hemisphere—the stately
1Vfikve Israel or Hope of
Israel Synagogue, one of
Willemstad's historic land-
marks. It is located in the
midst of Punda's bustling
shopping center.

The gabled old-world
structure, which stands at
the corner of Columbus-
straat and Kerkstraat
(Church Street), dates from
1732 and is the oldest syna-
gogue in continuous use in
the Americas. Its congrega-
tion, the first in the New
World, was founded in 1654
by Jewish refugees fleeing
the Inquisition in Brazil.
Synagogue records of the
17th Century and those of
today bear many of the
same family names.
Like its imposing facade,
the interior of the syna-
gogue bears the charm of
old Amsterdam. Brass
chandeliers hang from the
lofty ceiling, and the ritual
furnishings are of carved
mahogany with sterling sil-
ver ornamentation. A thick
carpet of sand covering the
floor symbolizes the desert
where the Israelites camped
on their long journey to
freedom. More practically,
it muffles the sound of foot-
steps during services.
Tucked away in a corner
of the synagogue courtyard
is the Jewish Museum with
its priceless collection of rit-
ual objects and memo-
rabilia from Curacao's Jew-
ish community. The
museum occupies two re-
stored 18th Century houses,
and features a 300-year old
mikva, recently discovered
in the courtyard. There are
also replicas of tombstones
from the old 17th Century
Jewish cemetery adjacent
to the Shell Refinery.

There's another asset of
great importance to vis-
itors. That's Curacao's
warm-hearted, friendly
people, proud of their multi-
national heritage, stability
in government and high
standard cf living, and dedi-
cated to "Carinoso di Cura-
son," a philosophy of life
that dedicates each Cura-
caoan to making every vis-
itor feel welcome.

Curacao has been wel-
coming visitors with open
arms ever since Alonso de
Ojeda, one of Christopher
Columbus' lieutenants, first
discovered the island 475
years ago. Later, in 1634, it
was the Dutch who settled
Curacao and who are
largely responsible for the
quaint gable-roof, colonial-
type architecture that vis-
itors today find reminiscent

of old Amsterdam.
When it comes to dining,
Curacao's famous restau-
rants offer cuisine from all
over the world. The restau-
rants, mirroring the island's
unique international heri-
tage, list a wide variety of
delicacies to choose from:
Dutch. Chinese. French,
Italian, Swiss, Indonesian
Rijsttafel which includes as
many as 40 exotic side dish-
es and native Antillean spe-
cialties.
Attire: for women, casual
cottons, linens, light weight
synthetics, swim suits, head
scarves for protection of
hair styles, light dressy din-
ner dresses, add a sweater
for cool evenings, comfort-
able shoes for walking.
Shorts can be worn on the
streets of Willemstad, al-
though the local people do
not wear them in town. Bi-
kinis are seen at beaches
and hotel swimming pools.
For men: Palm Beach type
sports clothes, shorts and
swim suits for beach and
__ poolside wear and, for in-
stance, a tie. Some casinos
and restaurants require one.

Curacao's artistry runs
deeply into every part of its
life. Look in Curacao's
shops and montage of the
world's goods meet the
eye—at prices sometimes
below those of the country
that produced them. There
are Swiss watches and
clocks, Indian hand embroi-
dered saris, French per-
fumes, Scandinavian silver,
Japanese cameras and on
and on.

At meal times Curacao's
international flavor again
presents itself. One can dine

into one big sightseeing at-
traction. You can spend day
after day sightseeing and

on authentic cuisine from
countries around the world:
Willemstad is probably
the most colorful capital in
the world by design. Its
buildings were splashed
with color at the direction of
an early governor who com-
plained the sun bouncing off
the white of buildings gave
him headaches. In any case,
this merry prescription has
helped turn this 17th Cen-
tury replica of Amsterdam
