Christoffel National Park

You can hike the Christoffel Mountain, but in that case you should be there by 10 am, though earlier is better. I didn’t have enough time to do it, or at least to start the hike early enough.

Shete Boka National Park

It’s next to the more famous Christoffel National Park. It is a Costal National Park with some beautiful hikes the name means seven inlets/bays.

Hato Caves

My Mum was at Curaçao before, however she had a dizziness spell in the Caves. Therefore she wanted to visit them again. They are nice, but I didn’t find them too fascinating. It’s only allowed to make photos in one room therefore I can’t show you many pictures.

We were told that even though it is not far from one of the ABC islands to another, there is no ferry traffic between the islands.
I took some Curacao blue (a liqueur that is made from bitter orange peels) with me for me and my friends. I don’t like the curacao blue from Bols, but love the original that you can only get in the Caribbean or one of the few countries it is imported to. Luckily for me one of them is the Netherland. I didn’t take anything for my wall, since I already have a Chichi figurine that my parents brought with them for me on their trip to Curaçao.
