When you're at the Island, you've gotta climb the highest mountain. Best to start very early in the morning. Sundays the park is open at 6 AM and I highly recommend to start this early. It's a tough climb, but it's doable and you will be proud of yourself when you're on the top.

We went to do a Jeep Safari but unfortunately there was a problem with the bus so we were too late. We called and they helped very much. We could come later and then he would give us a private tour (because we were the only one that morning) so we were relieved and exited! The tour guide was very... More

We took a public bus from the Otrabanda bus stop and asked to get dropped off at the entrance of the Mountain. We had about a 30 minute walk from the entrance to the mountain base. We didn't have a car, but you can also drive up to the mountain base and park your car there. From that point, it... More

Mount Christoffel is definitely something you should visit when on Curacao. It's a great climb with quite a challenging final hundred meters. The view is absolutely fantastic. If it's clear weather, you can see the entire island! Things to keep in mind: start your climb really early in the morning, otherwise it can be very hot. Climb may not be... More

Be sure to start early in the morning to be on the way down when the temperature starts to rise. Brind plentyfull water, we brought 3 liters for the three of us which was to little. The last part is the most difficult with some sheer cliffs (without fences). We visited in January 2013

The christoffel park offers walking trails and car tours. We took the car tour towards the coast because we were too late for the others... (11:30 on a sunday.......). And this is typical for the service at this park. You have to go in the morning and show up early - otherwise it's too hot: the park staff is right... More

first Thing to be said - the view is worth the strain!! you go by car to the entrance where there is parking available, you pay a small entrance fee and get a map with it. from there you can either walk straight away or drive around and save around 1 hour way-time in total. we walked the whole Thing...

I hesitate to review this park as I didn't actually get to visit the park. But there is value in sharing my experience as this may help you on your own visit. On their website, and indeed posted right in front of the employees I spoke with, it clearly states that other than Sunday, you cannot enter the park after... More

When I arrived to the park area, I only had time to buy a ticket to drive my own vehicle near the ocean and the overlook spots above the beach area. Driving through the park was nothing special. Be aware that the road is very narrow. You will likely need to be on the look out for cars traveling back... More
