Curaçao’s ethnic inhabitants - the Arawak, Dutch, Spanish, West Indian, Latin, and African - have created a rich heritage and thriving culture. Curaçao’s culture embraces many languages.
Although Dutch is the Curacao official language, and English and Spanish are also widely spoken, many residents speak Papiamentu — a Creole mixture of Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, French, English, and Arawak Indian.
