The Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao announced its Small Island, Big Bailout program that could add a major break to your bottom line. The country is giving away a trip for two per day for 70 days on its website.
Online registrants will be eligible to become one of 10 finalists in an on-island treasure hunt held in August. Although Curacao's August is a few degrees warmer than Boston's, the grand prize is $500,000, winner take all. I could live with that.
