Beware of Poison Apples!

No joke, there is such a thing as poison apples, in fact even the leaves are poison. However, it was worth the drive and made for a nice little filler for something to do. :)

Seriously put your dam trash in a garbage can. WOW, I have never experienced so much trash before coming to this island. Don't understand why the need to break bottles and leave the mess.

We arrived to the park with the intention to do the Boka Grandi Tour, but as all of the other trails were flooded, we decided to do the Mountain Trail. The hike was not easy and it gets very difficult near the top. The views are beautiful, but be careful of the wind and hold on to your hats! The... More

Not the most attractive area on the island, but you've got to pass it to see more pleasing to the eye sights. Good to travel through this rugged countryside to relate historically how resilient the locals must have been to survive here. This feature is the highest feature on the island at 372m or 1220'.

They do not let anyone climb after 11 am- Park is closed. Drive part of the route to the base of the mountain. We started at 10:45 and It took us 3 hours to return. Towards the end, it's all climbing rocks- scary. Wear hiking shoes or good sneakers. There is a lot of shade. Drink lots of water. Not... More

The hike is as many describe, 80% rough rocky hike, 20% climb. We saw people of various fitness levels complete it but you'd likely enjoy it more if you're someone who's in good shape. Took us about 1:05 each way, could be done faster but this was an enjoyable pace given the heat. Views are nice but it's ultimately more... More

Nice, rocky, challenging hike (especially) in the rain. The views are spectacular if it's not too hazy/cloudy. Begin your hike between 0600 and 0615, it gets crowded real quick! It may be helpful to have poles and grippy shoes are a must! Have fun!

We really enjoyed our hike to the top of Mount Christoffel and the drive along the north shore however we were saddened to see how people could leave their bottles and garbage throughout the park. You have to pay to enter the park to get on the trail. The hike is fun, challenging especially since it is so hot and... More

We were interested in exploring the island and enjoyed the easy drive and relatively short trip from Willemstad to Mount Christoffel park. We hiked and found the trail to be rigorous but doable and enjoyed the landscape of aloe plants and iguanas. It was reasonably priced to get in and the gift shop had reasonably priced souvenirs.

Great contrast to chilling at the beach - two routes you can follow self-paced with your own (rental) car, stop at amazing viewpoints and experience pure nature of Curacao! We liked it a lot! Be sure to arrive before 11 a.m. to be allowed to drive both routes and take enough water with you! Please leave the place clean and... More
