Caribbean Spaceport: Your Tropical Gateway to Space

Suborbital Personal Spaceflight will become one of the most exciting action-packed holiday adventures of the coming 10 years with a predicted market in 2021 of 1 billion dollars per year.

With its excellent tourism facilities and high-end aerospace infrastructure already in place, the beautiful Netherlands Antilles island Curacao offers the perfect location to serve this promising emerging Personal Spaceflight market as well as Scientific and Educational Spaceflight missions. Reciprocally, the development and operations of a spaceport on Curacao bring great benefits to the local economy of the island and will attract larger numbers of tourist visits per year.

Caribbean Spaceport, a Spaceport Partners project, is working closely with governmental and business institutions toward the goal of developing a fully operational spaceport by the year 2014.
