Christoffel National Park
Christoffel National Park

Christoffel National Park is the largest national park of Curaçao and a must see for everyone. The park has a rich variety of local flora and fauna. Nature lovers will find the park teeming with local birds and plants, including species, which are not easily seen elsewhere on the island.

There are eight hiking trails, allowing the visitor the choice between an easy stroll, or a challenging hike to the top of the Christoffel mountain (hiking is recommended in the early morning).

Scenic car routes take you through underbush, around hills and across sea swept bluffs. The park also organizes special activities, including safaris, deer watching, animal presentations, cave excursions, a guided park tour and many special trips like occasional full moon walks and sunrise safari’s.

Besides natural riches, the park also offers a great deal in the way of culture and history. Savonet Plantation is one of the earliest plantations to be set up on the island and is one of the most complete plantation complexes with structures including the plantation house, store houses, dams, wells and much more.

The former plantation house now houses Savonet Museum. This is one of the cultural highlights of Curaçao and definitely worth a visit.
