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

I saw so many good reviews that I strong armed my family into renting a car to drive up to see the park. It was terrible. If you want to spend $50 for a carload of 4 people to see dead trees, cacti, and a few lizards, this is the place for you. Also, the road was very taxing for... More

Now this is a great hike! We have no experience climbing or hiking, but we read it was easy doable. But be prepared, go early to avoid the heat (yes, be there at 8am), bring loads of water - at least 1.5 liters per person and wear comfy shoes. It took us 50 min. to get up, make sure you... More

Bring plenty of water and wear good shoes! (It was amazing how many people we saw with sandals...very treacherous). Not an easy climb but not overwhelming if you pace yourself. Heed all the warnings about leaving early, and allow a good 2 hours or so if you go at a moderate pace. The last 1/3 I felt like a mountain... More

On a clear day you have spectacular 360 degree views of the island. The hike up takes about 2 hrs. round trip. It's a decent hike and becomes more a climb the closer you get to the top.

I just visited Mount Cristoffel, and the view from the top is spectacular! Ignore any negative reviews!! Most, if not all, of those reviews came from people who didn't even attempt the climb or came too late because they didn't know there was a cut off time (which is 11am) to start the hike and were most likely forced to...

Whenever I'm coming off the mountain and passing a group that's just starting, at 9am, with flip-flops and one small bottle of water between 3 people... I always feel bad for them. Because although it's a short hike, it's pretty much straight up. You will not find switchbacks on this mountain, oh no. Just one path going straight up the... More

The other writers have correctly estimated the time, although it may take longer on the way up if you start later in the morning. The last 1/4 requires using some handholds to get over some of the rocks, so closed-toe shoes are highly recommended! Many of the others on the trail on our trip had insufficient water (we started a... More

My husband I rented a car for the day to head out and hike Mount Christoffel. The hike works up a good sweat, but is absolutely worth the drive and hike. Go early to park and make sure to bring water. The view of the island is stunning!

I did not expect that climbing a tall hill/small mountain would be the highlight of my trip to Curacao, but it was an immensely rewarding experience that I recommend to anyone who likes a good hike, photo opportunities, nature, or an opportunity to sweat. Getting There: Assuming you're heading from Willemstad, head up on Weg Naar Westpunt towards Westpunt for... More
