Curacao Wants You for Their Tropical Bailout and Treasure Hunt
Sometimes, you just need to stare at a picture of a perfect tropical beach, breath, and relax a bit. If the Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao has anything to say about it, however, you'll be doing fare more than simply looking at a picture of a beach, you'll be stretching out on one and singing the praises of their little blue water gem.
In order to convince Americans that vacations on Curacao are as good as or way better than in the usual spots like Cancun or St. Barth's, their tourism board is giving away 70 trips and a lump sum of $500,000 as a kind of tropical bailout package. Register to win on their website CuracaoTreasure, and of the trips, 60 vacations will be your run-of-the-mill (but awesome) free island packages. The last lucky 10 trippers will however be marked to "participate in an on-island Treasure Hunt in August 2009 with a grand prize of a half million dollars!"
Since the hunt will happen throughout Curacao and is geared to reveal "many hidden treasures to the international community expected to be on-hand for the Hunt," we're imaging that it will be like a combination of Amazing Race and that old Nickelodeon game show, Legends of the Hidden Temple. So if you're game to do a little pillaging of Davy Jones' locker and some possibly competitive drinking of Blue Curacao, then sign up, and you know, choose us as your treasure hunt partner *wink*.
