Photos by Germen Kroeger.
From the main road to Knip and Westpunt, there is a sign pointing to San Nicolas and Santu Pretu. Follow the sandy road till you find a place to leave your car. The San Nicolas Plantation is not open to visitors, but there are trails to the South Coast that pass the plantation. See MAPS.
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.
