The Netherlands Antilles include Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Saba, Sint Eustatius, and Sint Maarten. These Dutch islands are known for their excellent beaches and some of the region's best preserved reefs. Much of the Dutch influence is still visible on the islands, including their currency, their foods, and their pastel painted and gabled houses. Also interesting is the language in the Netherlands Antilles. The islands actually have their own language, called Papiamento, which is a mix of Spanish and Dutch, with some Portuguese, English, and African influences.
