Campo Alegre (Spanish for Happy Field, also known as Le Mirage) is a large open-air brothel which has operated near the main Curaçao airport since the 1940s. Originally an army encampment, it is located just off Franklin D Roosevelt Way. It is the largest legal brothel in the Curaçao.[1] Curaçao, as a Dutch protectorate, shares the legality of prostitution with the Netherlands. This facility has been extensively upgraded and refurbished, and bears little evidence of its earlier origins.
