ABC Islands Sportsbook App

The American football season is currently on a break. There are games for both the NFL and College football games, with all over the spread lines set to a default of -110 for each outcome (10/11 in English money or 1.91 in decimal terms). This produces a total book percentage of 104.8% which is okay but is likely to contract closer to game time when the final rosters are known etc. ABC Islands do a solid job of keeping bettors interested by providing a number of prop bets. Customers can strike wagers on winners of conferences, most passing yards, most receiving yard, Heisman trophy winner etc.

ABC Islands Sportsbook Review

Costa Rica…seems to be a country where North American facing online sportsbooks like to base their operations. With online gambling being illegal in the US, setting up shop in any of the 50 states isn’t possible and therefore firms get a legislative and financial break when taking their business to Central America. ABC Islands are no different and have been in operation since 1994. The company is located in Plaza Mayór in the Municipality of Pavas, San José and are considered an established firm. In addition to focusing on US sports, ABC Islands also cover many international events. They pride themselves on having high staking limits and accepting professionals and recreational players to the site. Are these claims true? How does ABC Islands stack up against its rivals also located in Costa Rica? In this article we examine all aspects of the sportsbook service.

Bonus Bucks at ABC Islands

There are a lot of selling points for ABC Islands, but this is one of the biggest. Bettors have five different choices when they sign up and make a deposit. They can enjoy 5% juice for the duration of their stay. There is no rollover with the 5% juice promotion and it is important to know how that cuts down the vig.

The standard vig is -110 on sides, totals, etc. The 5% juice promotion will cut down the standard vig on certain sports to -105. That means that a $100 bettor would bet $105 to win $100 instead of $110 to win $100. That cuts down your break-even rate by over a full percent from 52.38% to 51.22%. That is huge. Over the long-term, that should be worth more than a cash or free play bonus.

However, if you want to go that route, there are multiple options at ABC Islands for your first deposit. The first is a 25% free play bonus that has a 5x rollover requirement. The next bonus, said to be the site’s most popular, is a 50% free play bonus with a 10x rollover requirement.

A 150% free play bonus is also available with a 15x rollover. Finally, the last option is a 200% free play bonus with a 20x rollover.

A rollover requirement means that you have to make enough wagers to fulfill the amount of the rollover before you can make a withdrawal. For example, if you deposit $100 and do the 200% free play bonus, you would get $200 in bonus money for $300 total. You would have to wager that amount 20x, so make $6,000 worth of wagers before you could withdraw.

The minimum deposit to receive these bonus offers is $100 and the maximum bonus is $500. The cool thing about ABC Islands is that you will be eligible for these bonuses when you re-deposit as well, as long as you use Western Union or MoneyGram to send more funds. The same rollover requirements would apply.

These are also based on cash deposits, which means sending money via Western Union, MoneyGram, or direct from your bank account. Credit card deposits are only eligible for a 10% deposit bonus. Refer to the site’s Bonus Rules for more details.

What we would really like to do is a week in Aruba and another week in Bonaire. Bonaire has been featured quite often on Caribbean Life. It almost seems that Bonaire is what Aruba used to be like about 30 years ago.

We are looking ahead to October 2022 when we hope to return to Aruba.

What we would really like to do is a week in Aruba and another week in Bonaire. Bonaire has been featured quite often on Caribbean Life. It almost seems that Bonaire is what Aruba used to be like about 30 years ago.

My question here is; has anyone done this or something like this during the past couple of years, especially during COVID-19?

My initial thoughts are to fly from Canada into the US (either Miami or Atlanta), then from the US to one of the islands and return home from the other island, again through the US.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

In 1980 0r 1981, we did a week long in Bonaire for SCUBA and had an overnight in Aruba on each end of the trip.
We have visited Bonaire a few other times as separate trips, not with Aruba.
We have also visited Bonaire on cruises.

Bonaire is very different and knowing both of 30+ years ago, I do not think that Bonaire is what Aruba was years ago.
Both very different, both very nice and I believe you should consider a Bonaire trip.

THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind? SIDTM

10 years ago where we spent a week in Curacao followed by a week in Aruba. We flew in/out of Aruba and booked a puddle-jumper to fly us from Aruba to Curacao. There are several flight options each day from Aruba to/from Curacao so it was easy to book a flight to Curacao that lined up with our arrival date/time to the Aruba airport. I recall the flight time from Aruba to Curacao was

15 minutes (runway to runway). Curacao felt very different than Aruba, but it was enjoyable. Curacao has more of a European feel to it and that gives the island a unique charm and character. The opportunities for fine dining and nightlife in Curacao were limited – but that made it a fun activity to seek out the hidden gems for restaurants. During the day, there are many beaches in Curacao, however they are more natural and less developed than in Aruba and have far less people and services. The snorkeling was very good. We stayed at a resort called the Royal Sea Aquarium and we really enjoyed it because the stay at the resort included unlimited access to the aquarium located next to the resort. I recall taking morning walks with a cup of coffee and walking by the dolphins and sea lions every morning – and that was one of my favorite parts of that trip. Overall, I like Aruba much better for a fun, happy, easy, relaxing, beautiful, tropical vacation but I enjoyed the opportunity to explore and discover Curacao. We opted to spend our 1st week in Curacao and then finished the vacation in Aruba and I’d recommend that because then the vacation gets progressively better and better.

US citizens need a valid passport and return ticket within 6 months. Most other nationals need a passport and a valid return ticket within 4 months. The school’s Immigration Department will apply for a student resident permit on your behalf so you can stay for longer than three months. Contact the schools immigration department for more information. Students are not allowed to work on Curacao while on a student visa.

Island of Curacao

One of the best places to study medicine in the Caribbean is definitely the island of Curacao. It is located in the southern part of the Caribbean Sea off the northwest coast of Venezuela. The island is the largest and most popular of the three so-called ABC islands (for Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao) and is a self-governing part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Its capital city is Willemstad.

Curacao is renowned for its coral reefs which make it an excellent spot for scuba diving. The beaches on the south side contain many popular diving spots. An unusual feature of Curacao diving is that the sea floor drops off steeply within a few hundred feet of the shore, and the reef can easily be reached without a boat. The coastline of Curacao features many bays and inlets, many of them suitable for mooring.

When asked, repeat visitors generally say that they did not have enough time to do all they wanted to do on their first visit. If it is the third or fourth trip, the answer is basically the same but with this addition “It is the warmth and friendliness of the people” that keeps visitors returning year after year. The good news is that while this is all quite true, the island also offers a lively nightlife, fun places to visit and world class restaurants. When you first come to the island, you are a visitor, but when you leave, you are a friend.

The largest and most populous island of the Dutch Caribbean, located in between Aruba and Bonaire, Curacao lies some 35 miles off the northern coast of Venezuela and 800 miles north of Equator. The island is 38 miles long and varies between 2 and 8 miles in width. Spectacular beaches line the southwest, leeward coast. Geographically, it falls within the Atlantic Standard Time Zone, which is one hour ahead of U.S. Eastern Standard Time and the same as Eastern Daylight Time.

Atlantic Standard Time year round (equivalent to Eastern Daylight Savings Time). The difference between the European Time and Curacao Time is 5 or 6 hours (depending on Summer-time or Winter-time)

The population numbers more than 170,000, most of whom are of African or mixed African and European descent. In all, more than 50 different ethnic backgrounds are represented here, and the people are very proud of the island’s international flavor.

The native language is Papiamentu, but Curacaoans are multi-lingual, having learned to speak English, Dutch, and Spanish at school from the third grade on.

Curacao lies well below the hurricane belt, so the climate is sunny and dry, averaging only 22 inches of rainfall per year. The rainy season occurs in November and December. Despite the almost constant sunshine, the average year-round temperature is around 86 degrees Fahrenheit (30 Celsius) due to the trade winds that keep the island cool all the time.The picture on right shows the current temperature on the island.

The school’s Immigration Department will apply for a student resident permit on your behalf so you can stay for longer than three months. Contact the schools immigration department for more information. Students are not allowed to work on Curacao while on a student visa.

Curacao has the same voltage standard as in North America (110 volts AC). Therefore, European appliances (that use 220 volts) generally cannot be used on Curacao (unless you have a converter).

Banks are open Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The airport bank is open Monday through Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Select banks branches have ATMs that disburse US dollars. They are accepted everywhere, as are Travelers Checks and most major Credit Cards. Debit Cards are accepted at large shops and supermarkets. Prices are quoted in the national currency, the Netherlands Antillean guilder (also called the florin), abbreviated NAF or ANG It is pegged to the US dollar at a stable rate of US$ 1 = NAF 1.77 for cash, 1.78 for traveler’s checks. Bills of US$50 and US$100 can be hard to cash.

For dialing direct numbers from Curacao, the code into the international circuit is 00 followed by the country code, area code and the number. For assistance, call 121. Curacao’s International telephone country code is 5999. To direct dial Curacao from the U.S., the code is 011 – 5999 – then the local number. International calling cards are available all over the island.Internet service is offered by local providers at a very low monthly fee.

Curacao has always been considered one of the safest destinations in the Caribbean, however incidents may occur. It’s recommended not to leave your valuables unattended on the beach or in your rental.

Take sensible precautions against the tropical sun, especially between 10 AM and 3 PM. Sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat are recommended, as well as light beach cover-up. Neither the trade winds nor clouds will protect you from sunburn. In case of serious sunburn, drink plenty of fluids, take cool baths, use a body lotion containing Aloe Vera, and take it easy for a day or two. Sunstroke can be dangerous, especially for children, people who are overweight and the elderly; watch for dizziness, fever, headaches and nausea.

Although Curacao is less humid than many Caribbean islands, mosquitoes can occasionally be a problem in the rainy season and at night. Repellent can be purchased at pharmacies and supermarkets. Curacao has no malaria or similar tropical diseases, and no vaccinations are needed to visit. Due to the high level of overall hygiene and cleanliness, gastro-intestinal complaints (“travelers’ tummy”) are very uncommon. Eat and drink freely. For minor ailments, standard US and European over-the-counter medicines are available at the local pharmacies, called “Botika’s”.

There are a number of medical centers on the island. The St. Elisabeth Hospital is the most modern and well equipped in the region. In can be reached within 20 minutes from almost anywhere on the island

Travel insurance, which is always a good idea, is a smart safety net for travelers braving hurricane season. Policies can reimburse unexpected expenses, such as if storms delay your trip significantly—or strand you on an island.

Bottom Line

Traveling to the Caribbean during hurricane season isn’t risk-free, but by choosing the right island you can increase your likelihood of an easy breezy trip. Generally speaking, the closer to South America you get, the more likely you are to stay out of harm’s way. Compared to other islands, you’ll still find all the fun in the sun you’re looking for, making it the best of all worlds.
