The Fishers: Joan, Sam, 7, and Dan (not interviewed—he was in the nearby taxi line).

Home base

New York City.

Just Back From

The Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort & Emerald Casino (marriott.com; doubles from $299), booked when they discovered that their Caribbean mainstay, Beaches Turks & Caicos, was full.

In the box

A boogie board from Caribbean Sea Sports, a dive shop and school on the resort property.

Concise CuraÇao

The island is known for its Dutch colonial architecture— and a youth baseball team that’s played in the Little League World Series for the past seven years.

Resort report

Less crowded than many all-inclusives; nice, big rooms; okay food; broad beach; too much indoor time at the kids’ club.

Scuba Score

“Not as good as Grand Cayman, better than Aruba,” says Joan. “We saw eels, a nurse shark, a sunken freighter, and coral formations on a pile of junked cars.”

Sam’s Favorite Moment

Getting to hose down the deck on his first outing in a dive boat.
