First and foremost, do it as early in the morning as possible. It's no joke about the heat. This was my first hike ever...and it was hard and HOT, very HOT..we started around 830AM. I train and workout daily and it was even a small challenge for me. Bring lots of water (they sell some there). The hike is definitely... More

DO go on the windy roads on both sides the mountain and the beach side. Do eat the empanadas made by the Lady from Aruba. She is a delight to talk to.

Legend says that you can't call yourself a true person from this Island unless you climb this mountin. So, that was my goal, to make it to the top. This is nothing like a real mountin, but it takes some skills and stamina to actually achieve reaching the top. My biggest advice is to do this as early in the... More

Worth doing to kick off the morning. About 3 hours round trip. Very humid and hot 3/4 of the trip after that it is a little breezy and cools you down. Drink a lot of water and prepare to sweat. There a few bottle neck areas that will slow you down and there will be a lot of people at... More

Left at 9:30 a.m. which some say is too late to start. I am a Cross-fit person and went with a non-exercise pal who stopped about 3/4th of the way up. It starts off easy, gets steep, and the last 10-15 minutes of climbing is rock scrabbling, which required hand, arm, leg strength and for me was one of the... More

We chose to drive around the park using "the big loop". The different spots gave nice views, but $25 for 2 persons is way too expensive for what is it. I guess hicking is more enjoyable.

Very nice views. Challenging hike. Make sure you go early and take plenty of water. We started too late in the day and ran out of water, so we decided to turn back before we made it to the top. But we plan on going back better prepared! We also want to explore the other side of the park which... More

First let me say getting to the trail hike to hike Mt. Christoffel is VERY difficult in many of the small cars for rent on the island. For safety and peace of mind I'd recommend upgrading to an SUV or bigger car. The road to get to the trail is very steep in parts. Get on the road early as... More

An early morning hike up Mount Christoffel is a must do when visiting Curacao. The view at the top is worth the effort and there is so much to see on your way up. Just remember to walk with a couple bottles of water. You'll need it.

We really enjoyed our visit to this park. I recommend at least 3 hrs if you are only driving through. There are still great places to pull off and take photos. If you do plan to hike or spend a lot of time pulling off, then you will want to plan for more time. We went when it was quite... More
