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!

Boca Ascencion - St.Patrick - San Pedro - Barber

This Sunday, nobody organized a hike, so the hiking group did not follow a trail. 

We went (by car) to the Boca of Ascencion. The dirt road (coming from Willemstad, take a right turn just before the Plantation House) used to be closed, but recently it opened. It brings the visitor to the south side of the Boca Ascencion.

From there one can climb a ladder and walk to San Pedro on higher grounds or along the coast.

From the Northern side of the Boca, one can walk along the coast to Barber. To start, follow a small trail that runs from the South side of the Boca to the other side. (It crosses a field of very green low growing plants at the land's end of the Boca).
Walk via St. Patrick (a rusty old stone crusher is all that is left) to Barber. From there, turn back through an old Hófi (garden) with palms.
