Went with a group of six people with varying ages and fitness levels and we all made it to the top. The hike has some areas which requires a bit of climbing over very rocky areas. Good footwear is a must! The views at the top are breathtaking. We stayed at the top for about 40 minutes taking in the... More

Went around the entire national park (the mountain and the coastal park). It is the best excursion one can do in Curaçao! The tour guide is very knowledgeable and his stories and explanations make the tour very interesting.

The hike to the top of Mount Christoffel was definitely worth it, in terms of effort, time and cost. It was strenuous at the end and more like rock climbing rather than hiking. Get an early start and try to go on an overcast day rather than sunny. The heat is a killer up there. Watch your footing as many... More

The 360 degree views at the top are well worth the effort. The first portion of hike is not long or difficult but the last bit is quite strenuous. To avoid the heat I recommend hiking on Sunday because the park opens at 6 AM. Bring plenty of water and sun screen. Wear appropriate footwear too; i.e., no flip flops... More

We were staying in Willemstad for a week and wanted to visit the park so made arrangements to rent a car for the day. The rental at $42 was a great price as we also used taxis to go to a restaurant during our stay and it cost $17 one way and $20 for the return trip before tip, so... More

This was a highlight from our trip. Be sure to get to the park earlier in the morning (they stop access to the hike at 11am but it is a good idea to start earlier to avoid the heat of the day.) It is a good climb up and even tricker coming down in some spots but totally worth it.... More

We went with our son who lives in Curacao. It was quite heavy, and we were exhausted when we finally reached the top, but... the view was outstanding !!!

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

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. :)
