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!

Santa Catharina

Last update: none. Trail will be wet, muddy and overgrown after rainfall.New mills have been placed, so the begin of the trail can be a bit different. But, according to our groupmembers, who did the hike recently, the trail is still there and it is not a very difficult hike.
Don't go alone. Always form a group of at least four!

If you want to get to Santa Catharina the hard way, you park at Playa Canoa. Start walking to the mills. At mill 14 you turn right.
You also can drive on to that mill and start walking from there.
The trail gets smaller once it goes up. At some places it will be invisible (Bring something to cut thorny branches!), but as long as you go North East you'll get to the highest point from where you'll have a good view of the coast and plantation house Santa Catharina.
