Beautiful Hike But Go Early!

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... read more

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

Definitely a tough hike. I would say go as early as possible because it gets extremely hot. Pack a lot of water. We packed a liter of water and another 24 oz water bottle. We also went to the supermarket the night before and made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to eat at the top. As you get closer to... More

The park has some cool ruins and spectacular views. We saw some enormous cacti and lots of wildlife. It was a fun family day.

Large national park (relatively - it's a small island), which you can drive through and do some small walks and climb the mountain top. There's some good views even if you don't climb to the top. Make sure you've eaten breakfast before going... There's some restaurants nearby, but they either don't do breakfast, open after 8 AM (when it's recommended... More

My husband, 19 yr old daughter and I climbed this mountain on our first day in curacao. The first part is pretty easy but gets very steep in the end. It is more like rock climbing at that point. But worth it in the end spectacular view of the island although the day we went was a bit overcast. This... More

Save your time & money! Go stand by the gate to get in. That is about the same as what you will see after you've spent $12pp plus $1 for a map (yes, $1 for a map to go one-way on an only road in the park). The roads are VERY steep. Yes, it is paved but there were times... More

The climb to the APEX is fairly strenuous but well worth the trip. Good and bad it was over cast and windy Good. But once at top views of Venezuela were obstructed not so good. But still worth the more than 1 hour climb. You need to take a lot of water, some protein snacks, sun screen, hats, wear sturdy... More
