My wife and I did the car tour of the park. A few words of caution. Bring sunscreen, food and drinks. The driving tour around the mountain takes about 1.5 hours. More if you like to actually hang out and take in the views. The coastal route is a bit longer. Decent views. The roads are tight narrow and require... More

It's about an hour hike to the top and it is a must do. It takes about 45-60 mins if your are in shape otherwise it could take you a lot longer. Bring a lot of water because it is tiring (at least 2 bottles per person). Towards the top you need to start climbing the rocks so make sure... More

We were totally disappointed after our visit at this park because of the followings: there was nothing special to see in the park. The nature you can see along the road is even more beautiful and diverse. Also, the nature looks the same through the whole park. Despite these, it is quite expensive. The 2 of us paid 45 goulders...

The place is gorgeous, but the front-desk staff was so slow that there was a long, angry line when we arrived. The climb to the top was beautiful and I especially enjoyed the cacti and bromeliads, but they could have done a better job explaining that the trail is extremely technical - towards the top of the mountain, you're hauling...

As most may have ready already posted by other, its all true. However, I will post something in more detail. To make you trip easier and NOT DO what I did. And I did go alone and did not follow anyone. ============= Park Entrance: ============= - Definitely go early!, By 11 am the sun is at full blast and you... More

I gave this an average score because I think it ranks with state parks rather than national parks. (I realize there are no states here on this island, I'm just giving a reference point for the score.) It's an easy tour, perfect for when you're beached out. $10 per adult, $6 for children. If you want to get out and... More

The drive there was nice as we saw lots of the non-tourist country. The park is at a higher elevation and the views of the island are very pretty. It was very hot, the walking trails do not have shade, so we did a driving trail - there is a guided jeep tour, good price at 35 guilder pp, but... More

I climbed Mt. Christoffel in 34 C weather and 90% humidity. It was really, really, really hot. I'm not sure I've ever sweated that much in my life. But, that type weather is unusually high for Curacao and I still did it, which, means there's no excuse not to go! I started the hike at about 9am. I wish I... More

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
