This is an experience you will not want to miss when visiting Curacao. The mountain is over 1000 feet so you should be in moderate shape to make the hike. Wear good shoes and bring water and snacks. The hike up the mountain is full...More

Having good shoes to walk up this mountain is as important as having enough water supply. Take the route in the park by car and go up walking, preferrably early in the morning (heat)

You might think from the outline statistics (length under 2km, height 378m, typical duration well under 1 hour each way) that this is, literally, a "walk in the park". However, you'd be wrong, as although not difficult or lengthy it would be a mistake to...More

The mount Christoffel hike of approx 3 km is hard work as almost every step on the way to the top is up. The path is rocky and as a result of erosion worn out. Do not go when it is rainy! These days there...More

It's approximately an hour. The National Park is on the completely opposite side of the island from the cruise port area.

No, you will be fine with a regular type car. You park at the base of the mountain & begin your hike. When leaving, the road out is very windy but not steep.
