Klein Curaçao is an uninhabited island south of Curaçao. It is a bare island, with a pearly white beach. Here you can see sea turtles while snorkeling. You will also find a ‘neglected’ lighthouse that dates from the time when the island was green and horses were kept here. You will also find a shipwreck here and several small ships that have washed ashore. In addition to these sights, there is also a lot of peace here!
On the west side of the island is the impressive Christoffel Park. This park is part of a group of national parks that was established in 1978. The park is located about a 40-minute drive from Willemstad and includes the highest point on the island, Mount Christoffel. The colorful flora and fauna includes a forest of orchids, tropical birds and lizards. In addition, many sea turtles build their nests here. In summary, a park with many attractions.

But also keep this in mind as a great alternative to dinner at home in your holiday accommodation.

When it rains, roads in Curaçao become particularly slippery. This has to do with the amount of oil on the road surface. When the road surface gets wet, the oil is extra slippery. Drivers are therefore advised to moderate their speed when it is raining or on a wet road surface and to keep a sufficient distance from the vehicle in front, because their braking distance is considerably longer than normal.
Curaçao Road Service
If you nevertheless get into an accident on Curaçao, it is good to know what the procedure is. Traffic accidents usually do not involve the police, but the Curaçao Road Service. He can be reached 24 hours a day on telephone number 199 (or 5999/747-1333). They will then send someone over as soon as possible to draw up a damage report. If you need an ambulance, you can call 912. The general emergency number on Curaçao is 911. But hopefully you will never have to use those numbers and you will soon be driving around beautiful Curaçao carefree! Finally: many cars on Curaçao have quite a few defects, such as broken lights or bumpers that drag on the road. Therefore, keep a good distance and check your mirrors regularly.
