Mount Christoffel park is comprised of three plantations. The land surrounding is very lush and tropical feeling on the northwest side of Curaçao. Make sure to start your trek by 7:00AM as it can get very hot. On a clear day you can view the entire island and see Venezuela 35 miles away. Beautiful orchids around the park to view... More

You can do a few hikes but most of the park can only be visited by car. Which on one hand is a pitty but on the other hand it keeps most of the park is good condition. Some stops are nice but like the copper mine well it's just a hole in the ground. We did do the hike... More

Climbing Mount Christoffel was one of the highlights of mine and my husbands trip to Curacao. They do not let people start their climb after 11:30am as it gets too hot, so be sure to arrive early. As we were staying well on the other side of the island, it took an hour just to drive there. In retrospect we... More

The trip to the nature reserve is fun. There are 2 "halves" to drive round: the mountain route and the coastal route. Both allow you to get close to local vegetation, geology, flora and fauna. The iguanas near the caves on the coastal side were HUGE, and there were quite a few of them. The little restaurant by the park... More

We went to Curacao to dive but after lunch we like to sight see. This was one of the attractions we chose to see. There are two sides to this park. The mountain side and the ocean side. We only had time for one. We choose the mountain. We made a short hike to the manor house ruins. A good... More

We had a great hike up Mount Christoffel in October 2012 when we visited Curacao to dive. This was a great hike, but strenuous! You are hiking up a mountain the entire time, so up, up, up! Once you get to the top, it is a very steep scale up rock, but the top view is totally worth it! Make... More

My husband and I did this hike while on our honeymoon in Curacao and loved it! The hike took about an hour to the top and was well worth the work! The view from the top was spectacular and the climb was a lot of vertical but fairly easy until the peak. At the peak there was some slightly more... More

Visited around 3:00 p.m. and even though the park sign said it closed @ 4:00, they were closed to tourist. Also something to be forewarned about: if you want to go hiking, you have to get to the park before 11:00 a.m. or they will not let you hike. We wanted to hike but were too late. I never read...

I wish we'd gotten there early in the morning and done the hikes. I feel like that would have been more interesting than driving around. In the heat of the day, there isn't much to see, however, we did see the local Caracara birds and one deer. To me the north shore drive was more interesting, even though the mountain... More
