Know More about this tourAfter hotel pickup, climb aboard a large, open-air Jeep and zoom across the red-clay-colored mini-desert of Curacao with your guide. Pass plains of cacti and unruly shrubbery, and enter Shete Boka National Park, encompassing 6 miles (10 km) of rocky terrain along the island's northern coast.
Disembark to enter one of several caves located along this rugged landscape. Inside, learn about the geological history of these ancient rock formations. Follow your guide on foot across the rocky shoreline and stop at remote inlets, where youll capture great vistas of the surf pounding against cliffs formed by compressed masses of coral and limestone.
As your guide points out frigatebirds, herons and hawks swooping high above, note a salty taste in your mouth from the drops of ocean water suspended in the air. Then head to a nearby pocket beach where you might spot sea turtles crawling along, or perhaps find sand-covered pits where they laid their eggs at night.
Back in the Jeep, continue onto Suplad, a crater in a coral massif with an opening, from where warm ocean water shoots upward and out into the crater. Relax in the shallows of this natural hot tub and watch a show of wild fountains and rainbows arching over Suplad. Then enjoy a picnic lunch (provided), typically including various types of salads and bread.
End your tour at family-friendly Playa Lagun, a peaceful small cove with clear and shallow water near the shoreline, an ideal spot for snorkeling. Floating along in the gentle and warm current, observe plenty of tropical fish and sea turtles, and admire coral formations.
After your exploration of Curacaos natural wonders, youre taken back to your hotel.
