  • Great place to go for a break from the beach. Nice staff. Great they take credit cards.
  • We had a great time walking here. It's super hot down in the bokas, but the breeze on top and views are magazine perfect
  • Beautiful park! Be sure to wear running shoes or any other appropriate footwear. You’re walking on fairly sharp rocks. And it is sunny! Bring water with you. Or purchase it from the lady at the front :)
  • Wow! Powerful waves, raw desolate beauty and some awe view in any direction. Great trail with a ton of views to the natural bridge. Wear protective footwear as the coral rocks are as sharp as glass shards. Please if you go don't trash this place, as this park is a real beauty, let's keep it this way. Thank you caretakers in Curacao!
  • Stunning park and definitely worth the trip to visit. Caution: wear appropriate foot wear as it is rocky. Wear appropriate clothing as there are thorns and you are exposed to the sun for most of the adventure. Lastly, stay hydrated as the heat and humidity can be a little much especially for children and the elderly.
