Introduction - introductie

This blog is not a trail guide. It is about the beauty and the diversity of Curaçao.
There are dry months and wet months, days with wind or storm or no breeze at all.
Due to the weather conditions, you may find he trails to be very different from what our pictures show.

Most recent hikes are described in Dutch / Nederlands (kijk voor de laatste wandelingen in het blogarchief). De paden veranderen snel.

The other entrees are in English. Our main object is to show the beauty of the island. We cannot always give exact directions of trail heads or ends.
Many trails change, closed by owners, or overgrown. . the maintenance depends on
enthusiastic volunteers. Our group tries out new trails too.

Important: never go hike alone! When visiting popular places like the Salt pans of Jan Kok or Ascencion Bay don't get out of your car unless other people are there. Leave money, cards and other valuables at the Hotel.
If you have no one to come with you, take a hiking tour with a guide. Please read the page with
tips and info
Do not touch the
Manzanilla tree or its leaves and apples. They are poisonous.
Enjoy Hiking Curaçao!

*You can start this hike from the main road between Piscadera and Jan Doret (Opposite the turnoff to Cas Chikitu, there is a dirt road. That is where we left our cars)
From the dirt road you can see the ruined plantation house Raphaël. You can go up to the house and look around a bit. At some point along the trail you'll have a nice view of the Piscadera Bay with the boats of the fishermen.

*You can include a trail up and down the Veeris Hill. Quite steep, beautiful views!
The trails are nice, but depending on the direction of the wind, you may smell the oil refinery.
* Or you start at Hook's Hut (or Playa di Awa) at Piscadera. You can include a trail up and down the Veeris Hill. Quite steep, beautiful views!
