Overview
Experience the natural wonders of Shete Boka National Park and Playa Lagun on this full-day tour in Curacao. Cross desert plains in an open-air jeep, and explore rocky bluffs of the northern coastline. Observe sea turtles on the beach, and frigatebirds and hawks soaring above as you visit postcard-beautiful inlets, get showered by the waters of a blowhole (a natural fountain), and then snorkel in the clear and shallow waters by laid-back Lagun Beach or another nearby beach.

Serlon "Long" was a fabulous tour guide! He is very kind, accommodating, laid back, and knowledgeable. He spent extra time with us, and we experienced some "not typical of the tour" places - and people! Serlon brought us to the desert, the caves, Shete Boka Park, snorkeling

Dear Nayo, Thanks for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour with us and that Oshell became your favorite person you met on the island. That is a very nice compliment. Thank you! It is a pity that we "lost" 1 star. Of course we are still happy about the 4*. I see that you booked through Viator/ TripAdvisor Experiences and I just double checked the tour description on their website. I personally would not consider Suplado a natural spring. We will contact them to adjust the wording to prevent confusion and disappointment. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Thanks again for your feedback. We appreciate it very much. Sunny regards, Bettina
