    That looks like a really great hike, with great views as a reward for all that effort. And must have been quite an adventure too.

      Definitely! We didn’t have many expectations and thought it would be a simple little hike. It ended up being an adventure 🙂

    Orange goats? I think Leslie might have been enjoying too much Caribbean rum.

    This post is getting me excited for my Caribbean adventure starting in less than two weeks. From this peak you might be able see Traveling Ted’s goofy hat with the right zoom equipment or in Leslie’s case too much rum in the nearby islands of Trinidad & Tobago.

      I agree! I am still VERY doubtful about her orange goat claim…

      I swear, I saw a shaggy orange goat on this hike! Jake was just too slow to spot it before it darted away 🙂

    I have not been here, but looks like a fun place to visit. Your first-hand pictures are great!

      Thanks Maria! It was a fun hike and I’d recommend it if you vacation in Curacao 🙂

    Jake, thanks for this post. We’re headed to Curacao in a month and I’d like to try this hike for the view if nothing else! Did you try to go early in the day or in late afternoon to avoid peak heat and/or bugs?? We’re coming off of a Canadian winter, and don’t want to melt 🙂

      Hi Lindsey! All of the guides mentioned to go really early in the morning because of the heat but we can’t wake up too early in the morning so started the hike around 11 and it was a little hot but not too bad. There is a lot of shade on the first half of the hike and it’s not too humid so it wasn’t bad.
      Enjoy the hike!

    I completed this hike in May 2013 and it was one of the most scenic hikes I have ever done, especially given the fact that this mountain rises out of nowhere on a little island. The lady at the ticket booth told me to do the hike no later than Noon, and it made perfect sense given the high heat and humidity. Also, the birds and flowers were spectacular.

    Great Post!
    I know that it’s already years old but it is very comprehensive and still shows up well in searches.
    I am a Tour Guide and accommodation provider and will be linking to this from my website. Many of the visitors to Poppy Hostel Curacao http://www.poppyhostelcuracao.com take a day trip to climb Seru Christof and this post is the best I’ve read concerning what is the highest “Mountain” in the commonwealth of the Netherlands.
    Congrats!
