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!

Wacao - by car

While the hikers went up the hill and then down to admire the bocas and views, we went by car, got lost in wide open spaces and hills that looked pretty much the same all around.

Beautiful fields with sheep, cows, rusting car wrecks, goats and falcons. We took a lot of pictures, admiring the colors of the land.

Falcon - Warawara
Kestrel - Kinikini

We ended up at the Boca that was also on the trail of the hikers. We did not see anybody. We admired a ruined house, rocks, blue water, a shore that made us think of southern Europe and a broken shell.

note: Wacao is not open to public. Hiking or driving only with guide and permit.
