    Mapping Out Curaçao

    Curaçao is a large, flat island that stretches 40 miles across and about 10 miles wide. The coastline along the southern portion of the island is filled with small bays and inlets that are perfect for watching sunsets. The largest bay is located on the eastern portion of the island. This is also where the capital is located along with the majority of the island’s residents and tourist activities. The western part of the island features Christoffel Park and contains the highest elevation in Curaçao. Up on the north coast, it’s less inhabited, but you’ll still find small villages and old plantations here.

    Citrus and Economy

    Like Aruba and Bonaire, the island of Curaçao was once home to the indigenous Arawaks who populated the island until the beginning of the Spanish colonization in 1499. When the Dutch West India Company arrived in 1634, Curaçao’s economy focused on plantation farming for fruits like oranges, coconuts and bananas before becoming focused on the boom of the oil industry. Today, visitors can enjoy tours of former plantations and experience the rich culture of the island.

    Explore Christoffel National Park

    Christoffel National Park was pieced together during the early 1970s from three former plantations. While visitors can tour the park by car, the best way is to jump right in and explore the park on foot. Easily navigable, the Christoffel National Park is connected via an intricate network of trails where you can admire the views of limestone terraces, Ameridian petroglyphs and the “landhuisen,” or plantation houses of yesteryear.
