Once the center of the Caribbean slave trade, the island of Curacao was hard hit by the abolition of slavery in 1863. Its prosperity (and that of neighboring Aruba) was restored in the early 20th century with the construction of oil refineries to service the newly discovered Venezuelan oil fields. The island of Saint Martin is shared with France; its northern portion is named Saint-Martin and is part of Guadeloupe, and its southern portion is named Sint Maarten and is part of the Netherlands Antilles.
Location: Caribbean, two island groups in the Caribbean Sea - one includes Curacao and Bonaire north of Venezuela; the other is east of the Virgin Islands
Climate: Tropical; ameliorated by northeast trade winds
Borders: Guadeloupe (Saint Martin) 10.2 km
There are two island groups of three islands each; the Netherlands Leeward and the Netherlands Windward islands.
The Leeward group, situated north-west of Caracas, Venezuela, consists of Curaçao, Bonaire, and until 1986 Aruba. The Windward group lie east of Puerto Rico and consist of the southern half of St Martin (Sint Maarten) and all of St Eustatius and Saba. The official language of the Netherlands Antilles is Dutch, although English and Spanish are also spoken. Papiamento is a mixture of mostly Dutch, Spanish, and Portuguese.
