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!

Boca Sami

Last update: walking around the laguna will be difficult after heavy rainfall.  The trail up the "mountain" is o.k. on both sides, although the path might be overgrown here and there. 

Starting at Boca Sami beach, you used to have a choice of trails.
But at the moment you can not cross the outlet of the laguna and take the trail to Vaerssenbaai.
This short hike you can only start at Vaerssenbaai.
You can walk along the laguna. At the right ahnd side there are some good trails leading up and down the St Michiel Hill. Great view!
From Vaerssenbaai you can do the Jamanica hill. Quite steep. Beautiful views!
