We are Francis & Elma, with our roots in Curacao and the Netherlands. It has been a dream of ours to run an intimate countryside bed and breakfast for some time now, and as of may 2024 we were able to make it happen. 

Through the name "Dushi vida" we are paying an homage to our beautiful "Dushi Korsou" and reminding every one of you to enjoy life to the fullest.

blauwe kamer.jpeg

Blue room

At the Blue Room Cave, something magical happens between the sun and the water, transforming the underwater cave into a blue room. It is a special natural phenomenon. You can visit the Blue Room Cave by boat, with a canoe, or a beautiful hike. The best time to go to the Blue Cave Room is around noon, when the sun is at its sharpest.Once you arrive at the entrance of Blue Room Cave you can choose to jump in and see it. If the water is high you have to take a two-meter dive to enter the cave. Once there you will be overwhelmed by this special natural phenomenon.

hofi pastor.jpeg

Hofi pastor

Hofi Pastor is a small nature park of approximately 12 hectares. The park is managed by the organization Amigo di Terre (Friends of the Earth). The philosophy of this organization is that nature is given a lot of space. The original, neat orchard has become a fairytale forest. There is even a chance that a footpath is difficult to navigate due to overhanging lianas or fallen trees. That makes it all the more fun!  You can see the most beautiful birds darting away, butterflies flying everywhere and with a bit of luck you will see large iguanas, wild donkeys or colorful but harmless snakes. You can explore the park on foot with or without a guide. 



This country house, restored in 1996, is located almost opposite Landhuis Ascension on the road to Westpunt. Plantation Dokterstuin was already in use in the 17th century. The country house probably dates from the 18th century. In the second half of the 19th century it was owned by the government, which leased small parts of the land to former slaves. In this way the government hoped to stimulate agriculture. Now there is a local restaurant, known as one of the best.

museo tula.jpeg

Tula museum 

Discover the historical journey of Tula. Protesting the injustice suffered by slaves, he sought freedom and equality by leading a revolt on August 17, 1795. Tula confronted owner of Landhuis Knip, Casper Lodewijk van Uytrecht to plead for their freedom, which marked the onset of the largest slave uprising in the history of the Dutch Antilles. Explore Museo Tula’s innovative concept, a Museum Without Walls. Immerse yourself in history as exhibits seamlessly integrate with the landscape, offering a dynamic, boundary-defying encounter with Tula’s rich heritage. Join us in this unique exploration of resilience and triumph.


Boka Patrick

Between the town of Barber and the eastern coast of Curaçao lies a swath of land known as Patrick, named after a plantation house which used to sit roughly in its center. Rugged, isolated and mostly flat, this is a popular area for hiking. Boka Patrick is a large inlet with a wide, sandy beach. We suggest visiting Boka Patrick for its extreme natural beauty and solitude; it’s amazing that such a place is completely off-the-radar for both tourists and most locals.
