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!

Hike Jan Thiel Beach and around the salt pans.

Next hike will be at Jan Thiel. This time we will start at the west side of Jan Thiel Beach. The brave hikers will follow the trail down the uppertrail (between Jan Thiel beach and the Salt pans), and then climb up to the uppertrail. We will do this only half way. ( Or start at the end of Kaya Damasco, and follow a trail to the saltpans. And then, walk around the pans.)
The lower trail along the shore is quite a challenge. At some points you have to jump from rock to rock, with the roaring waves beneath you.
