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!

Ronde Klip

Last update: none. The trail will be as bad or good and as adventurous as allways.

Leave your wheels at the roadside opposite the beautifully restored plantation house Ronde Klip. Walk back to the asphalt road. follow the road and turn right to go up the hill that also is named Ronde Klip (round cliff). See the photo gallery for pictures of the trail.
The first we did this trail, we missed the turn off to the hill. We went on and on and on. We counted 14 wrecks at the side of the road.
The second time we were there, we found the right way to get up the hill and we did not have to count wrecks.
It is a pretty tough climb if you want to go all the way. I didn't make it (too hot!) but the others did. It is better to do this trail in the cooler season (November - February).
There is a trail to caves with Indian paintings. The trail is hard to be found though. Do not disturb the bats!!
