Curacao has responded to the COVID-19 travel restrictions by launching a program of virtual experiences to keep travelers engaged.
The Curacao Tourist Board launched the “Dushi things to do at home” Instagram series this week with a high-energy Zumba class taught by professional dancer and Zumba instructor, Cristine Riguad. Check out the video class here.
The Curacao Instagram channel will be sharing locally inspired content every two to three days. The segments are ideal to send clients to inspire future bookings.
“The fun thing about this series is that Curacao’s residents are participating and creating content from their very own backyards and homes,” said Rebecca Marval, marketing manager at the Curacao Tourist Board in a press release statement. “It’s not staged. There are no camera crews. It’s a raw look at some of the experiences that make Curacao so unique. These are everyday people who want to help out their island and curate positive, upbeat content.”
Other planned content in the series will include:
