Going to Curacao - all advice welcome!

I'm going to be in Curacao over Labor Day weekend. Does anyone have suggestions on where to stay and what to do while I'm out there? I want to do as much as possible in a short amount of time.

So despite my last question, I was finally able to book my flight to Curacao. Hooray! We did end up moving the dates, so now i will be there over Labor day weekend (Sept 5-8). It's a short trip but, better than nothing!

Does anyone has suggestions as to where to stay and fun stuff to do while I'm out there? I am NOT the "lay around and relax on a beach" type of vacation goer, so I want to do as much stuff as humanly possible while I'm out there. However, my friends that I'm going with ARE the relax on a beach type so... I may conceivably be doing some of this stuff by myself. So please take that into consideration when suggesting stuff that might not be in the safest areas.

I love music, dancing, museums, history, animals, kayaking, hiking, swimming, festivals, and pretty much anything else you can throw at me.

The Curacao slave museum is very impressive, and (obviously) extremely sad. I'd consider it a must-see, especially given Curacao's large role in the slave trade.

It's a small island, you have a good chance of covering most of the sights. Don't miss the chance to go snorkeling, you can see so many fish there! Playa Kalki is a good spot.
You could have a nice traditional lunch at Dokterstuintje. You might also enjoy the butterfly garden at Banda Bou.

I consider CuraƧao a pretty safe place. Have fun!
