Christoffel National Park, Curacao, is centered on Mount Christoffel, the island's highest point at 1,239 ft/377 m. It affords a panoramic view of all of Curacao, as well as nearby Bonaire and Venezuela.
Hikers can take one of eight different nature trails and see caves with ancient Caiquetio drawings. It's a lovely area, with 10-ft-/3-m-tall cacti, palm trees, flowers, whitetail deer and birds (orioles, troupials, yellow-breasted sugar birds and some parrots that a hurricane blew in from Bonaire). Roads in the park have been improved, allowing guided drive-through tours on three routes of varying lengths. Deer-watching is the most popular attraction, done in scheduled groups.
