Get there early, bring water and proper shoes

Yep, everything that has been written already is correct. Park opens at 7:30am every day except Sunday when it opens at 6:00am. Get there early to hike/climb in the coolest part of the day. At 11:00 o'clock no one is allowed to start hiking up. The path is narrow and rocky and the final stretch is more of a boulder... More

We drive through the park and stopped at some view points. As we had a baby with us we couldn't do a hike. The park offers some nice views but didn't feel the nature was stunning or unique. Nevertheless, nice to visit when you make a round trip over the island.

Christoffel park is definitely worth a visit, but make absolutely sure that you start as early as possible, have lots of water with you and avoid flip flops. The sun is torrid and the heat can be relentless, even for southern europeans like us. Having all that in mind, there are several hiking or car routes to choose from, to... More

We drove here and did the mountain walk. This is something you want to do as early as possible (believe they close for ascending at 11AM as it gets too hot after that). Depending on how fit you are, this is a bit hard climb / walk. You will for sure get sweaty, but a good climb and an amazing... More

We only visited the park to do the climb and it was great. Buy your tickets at the "landhouse" early in morning as soon as they open because the climb is not easy and it gets hot very early. I climbed with my teenage daughter and both of us are runners and active sports people, we went well equipped and... More

We had read about hiking Mount Christofel before coming to the island. We decided last night to hike this morning as park opened at 6 am and we wanted a very early start. We are staying on the west side of the island so the drive to the park didn't take long at all. We bought tickets, used the restroom... More

First and foremost, do it as early in the morning as possible. It's no joke about the heat. This was my first hike ever...and it was hard and HOT, very HOT..we started around 830AM. I train and workout daily and it was even a small challenge for me. Bring lots of water (they sell some there). The hike is definitely... More

DO go on the windy roads on both sides the mountain and the beach side. Do eat the empanadas made by the Lady from Aruba. She is a delight to talk to.

Legend says that you can't call yourself a true person from this Island unless you climb this mountin. So, that was my goal, to make it to the top. This is nothing like a real mountin, but it takes some skills and stamina to actually achieve reaching the top. My biggest advice is to do this as early in the... More

Worth doing to kick off the morning. About 3 hours round trip. Very humid and hot 3/4 of the trip after that it is a little breezy and cools you down. Drink a lot of water and prepare to sweat. There a few bottle neck areas that will slow you down and there will be a lot of people at... More
