vanuit Pannekoek, maar vanuit Soto.
Wij parkeerden de auto's bij Landhuis Groot Santa Martha
en volgeden de weg te voet langs de muur van de tuin met Manzanilla's en Kapokbomen, tot de afsplitsing naar Playa Hundu.
Also these hikers -the small group with knee problems- found their way to Boca Sal. Not from Pannekoek, but from Soto.
We parked the cars at Plantation House Groot Santa Martha and followed the road on foot along the wall of the garden with Kapok trees and Manzanilla trees. Untill the fork with a left turn, asphalt road, to Playa Hundu.
Dan linksaf over asfalt richting zee tot de afsplising van het pad naar Boca Sal. De wandeling kent enkele glooiingen, maar vraagt niet om echt klimwerk.
We followed the road till there is, on the left, a turnoff to Boca Sal, see photo. The hike has a few slopes, but does not include real climbing.
The first part of the walk, the asphalt road, is accessible for cars and is (unlawful) used as landfill. But also that gives surprising images.
Not just waste, but also a trap.
The path to Boca Sal.
Boca Sal. Here we met our hiking group that started at Pannekoek.
The hike back follows the same route. I took a picture of a tiny berry; just as small as the
berries of the Stakamahachi, but it is another plant, a hefty Bush.

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.
