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, ze groeien dicht of worden gesloten. Er komen ook nieuwe routes bij.

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!

Rooi Rincon

Last update: none. The lower trails are o.k.  After heavy rainfall, the upper trails will be overgrown a bit. Rooi Rincon is a lonely place. Always go there in a group!

Rooi Rincon offers short hikes. This area close to the airport was recently opened to the public and trails were created. You start your hike in a small forest where you will find a little natural well. Up you go to find rock formations that are working on becoming caves.
You go on all the way up, until you reach the path that is the end of the trail. From there you can see the airport and a large part of the North Coast.
Watch your step (going up) and also your hands when going down. The rocks are very sharp.

All the trails on the island have their own beauty. Rooi Rincon has pretty views, cacti and large trees. The rocks are colorful and the trail up along a 'wall' of rocks is a different experience.
