Off To Exotic Curacao in the Southern Caribbean

As you are reading this, I am winging my way to Curacao in the southern Caribbean, for a four day stay courtesy of Marriott Curacao Resort and Emerald Casino. The press trip, appropriately named “Blog Paradise,” is sending nine bloggers to nine different resorts included in Marriott Resorts’ Paradise by Marriott Caribbean and Mexico collection to promote special limited-time offers at each of the properties.

The promotion is different for each of the resorts; for example, at Marriott Curacao Resort and Emerald Casino, guests get the fourth night free and a free breakfast. Check out the other offers at the website – just choose the preferred resort, click to shake up the giant snow globe, and watch as the offer is revealed.

I’ll be blogging about the trip, but for real-time impressions, events, and updates follow me on Twitter. All nine bloggers will be tweeting throughout the trip using the hashtag #BlogParadise. If you’d like to check out where the other eight bloggers are headed, follow the links to their blogs shown below:

For now, I’m brushing up on the local lingo, so I’ll close by saying Ayo – Papiamento for goodbye.

  3. They are heat sensitive and would take some time for them to get used to your body temperature and give out the best results. So it would not be that easy to determine which mattress would best suit your needs right away.

  4. I wish I could also visit southern Caribbean courtesy of Marriott Resorts. You are so lucky!
    The place is amazing just right for relaxation and far from the buzzing sound of the city…Far from everything. If ever given a chance to go there fro free I won’t think twice. I wish I came from a rich family…
    Thanks for posting and sharing this kind of wonders!
