Absolutely loved it! We arrived there early morning since we wanted to check several beaches nearby afrerwards. They don't allow to climb it after 11 I believe. It takes about an hour to get up and and an hour to get back. If you do it in a slower pace you should be fine even, if you don't work out... More

We were not there early enough so we could not climb Mount Christoffel. We did enjoy the drive. The park has two drives. One is along the mountain area and the other is by the coast. We enjoyed seeing the plantations. This was the only spot which received any rain while we were in Curacao. It rained for 2 minutes.... More

About 1 hour up, about 50 minutes down. Nature's STAIR CLIMBER for sure! It is do-able for most with a reasonable level of fitness. The "steps" are big rocks the ENTIRE way up. Keep this in mind - it's a good cardio workout and can be somewhat difficult on the knees coming back down. The top 1/4 you'll be using... More

Start this hike early and from the car park at the base of the mountain - otherwise you will have a long trek in from the park office through humid, forested although good road and wear yourself out before you even start climbing. Take more water than you ever imagined you would need. The climb up is great - it's... More

We visited Mt Christoffel for the hike to the top of the mountain. Even though it was January and in their "cooler" season you'll need to get there before the cut off time or they will not allow you to hike to the top. They say it will be too hot. It was an 85 degree day when were hiked... More

With 3 young kids in tow, decided against the climb to the top, but did want to experience the park as ancient Indian carvings sounded interesting. Cost for 2 adults and 3 children in 1 car was 38 USD for the pass through the park. Basically, you are paying to drive through a desert with 1 or 2 places to... More

A short distance but steep climb. Small entrance fee to the park. Parking is available. Worth when visiting the westend.

We hiked the mountain path, and enjoyed it very much. Nice views and a good little bit of excercise to intervene with the beaches. What caused us problems was the lousy rental car, with which some of the (really) steep hills were a true pain to climb. So be sure you are comfortable with your car and driving before entering,...

Climbing Mount Christoffel is an absolute MUST when visiting Curacao. We took the hike Christmas morning, and even though we came early the heat was almost unbearable making the hike quite the struggle. But up we went and in the end the view was breathtakingly amazing. It was so much fun challenging ourselves! You can choose to leave your car... More

We booked a guide for a walking trip and he was incredible!!!! We didn't go up the mountain, but around the 'quieter side' of the park with a guide named Cyril. He was brilliant, informative, funny and completely made our hike/walk. We have two girls (8 and 10) and it was a good walk for the 8 year old, but... More
