Perched off the coast of Venezuela, the island of Curaçao is home to pristine beaches, picturesque national parks, and native flora and fauna.

While some of the Caribbean’s top tourism destinations are lauded for their lush jungles and humid climate, rain is a rare occurrence on Curaçao, even during its three-month wet season. Yet, despite its dry climate, the island is abundant with native wildlife.

The view from atop Christoffelberg in Christoffel National Park

There’s no shortage of places to explore on Curaçao, but perhaps the crown jewel can be found in its northern reaches: Christoffel National Park.

Though only 4 square miles in size, it’s the largest park on the island and serves as Curaçao’s top destinations for hiking or viewing flora and fauna. For ambitious adventurers, the Christoffel Mountain Trail in the national park offers gorgeous views of the island.

The hike takes roughly three hours and ends atop the 1,220-foot-tall Christoffelberg, the tallest mountain on the island. Due to Curaçao’s extreme heat, hikers must embark on this trail before 10 o’clock in the morning.

Hypocrisy as the diplomacy, supported by lies and misfortune are the stepping stones of these companies. In Curacao the labor inspection has uncovered that over 80% of Marriott’s construction work force is deployed by illegal aliens, most of them Haitian and Venezuelan refugees?
