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

A beautiful, unique adventure in Curacao. Don't underestimate the time it will take to drive to the park & then the time of the hike! The park closes mid day and they do not allow you to start climbing if you are going to be in past that time. (Good thing since it gets hot!) Bring water! And wear a... More

US $12 per person is a ridiculous price for what is a 60 minute slow drive with a few stops but overpricing is standard for Curacao. However, still worth visiting while on the island if you have a car and happen to be on the north end. You drive a loop on a paved narrow one-lane one-way road with a... More

My husband and I are average, fit people and could do this hike. Definitely agree with doing as early as possible--hit it as soon as it opens. Hike near the top turns into a bit of rock (smaller logs/trees) climbing, but VERY WORTH it. Don't quit. The last bit is very short and the view will not disappoint. We parked... More

I agree with all others here- this is a great, strenuous hike and I highly recommend it. I am a regular runner and consider myself pretty fit, but my arms and legs were really sore after this hike. If you're on the shorter side (I'm 5'4") you will be using your arms a lot on the bouldering section at the... More

Very strenuous hike to the top, including a 50 yard vertical section that is bouldering, not hiking. We walked from the park entrance, but you can park a little closer inside the park and save about 30 minutes. From the entrance to the lot is relatively flat, but we walk by some watering holes with wildlife. Once you get to... More

My boyfriend and I did this hike recently and loved it. We enjoy hiking but are not in amazing shape. We parked at the visitor center because we wanted the challenge. You have the option to drive in and park closer to the top. From the visitor center it took us about 2 hours 15min up and a little less... More

We came in a bit late. OK. So we were told that we can only make one of the 2 different parts of the park. OK too. But, they have no problem charging you for both! That's not correct and they did probably know it. Never-less, the drive itself was very nice, beautiful scenery. Do it, but do it in... More
