Steep going up, but a great view from on top!

Go for it. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. It is a bit rough towards the top, but it's worth the walk. Bring water. It's hot on the way up! Get an early start.

Need to purchase a token for the gate at the park entrance. Be aware the rangers prohibit folks from starting a hike after 11am as it gets quite hot. Regardless of when you start, don’t forget water and sun protection. The road is paved and one way – yes, its narrow and somewhat steep in places but we had no... More

Get started early to hike to the top of the peak. You will not be allowed to start your hike after 11am because it is a difficult hike and gets too hot. Start early, 7:30am-8am, bring water and a snack. So nice to get away from the resort and enjoy this gorgeous part of Curacao. The drive around the park... More

The Boca Grandi water stop makes the whole trip worthwhile. Largely desert vegetation, iguanas, birds and lizards. Price 12$ us per person. Due to 34 degree weather we were allowed to navigate through in our car only, which was fine with us. It's nice to see land set aside to keep the flora and fauna protected.

We had a great time driving around the park. Our three young kids (8, 6, and 3) enjoyed the scenery and watching for birds and lizards. We did not attempt to climb up to Christoffel--I don't think the three or six-year-old would have made it (or had fun)--but will save for another trip. There were several other stops to explore...

I've read reviews that is best to arrive at the park as earliest as possible and so how true. I arrived at 7:30 am and began the drive to the climbingredients area around 740am. I met a great gentleman who climbs the mountain many times per week and provided good advice. I believe most can climb this mountain at least... More

If you like to hike or climb to see views, this was fun. 1000' or so vertical climb, a few nice shady spots along the way to take breaks. Take water! A couple of hours up and down should do it.

If you like something different from the beach view, the trek to Mt. Christoffel offers a nice change of scenery and a fantastic view of the island. The hike takes approximately 2 hours to complete. Not too demanding. Good for families with children (age 6+)

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
