At the end of 2019 Curaçao Hiking stops organizing guided hikes. Of course there are alternative hiking organizations; see the overview with links on the home page of this site. An alternative is to go hiking yourself or with a group of friends or similar minded people. To facilitate that I provide several options and tools:
Under the facebook page of Curaçao Hiking I have created a closed group called Curaçao Hiking Group. The purpose of that group is to create a meeting place for hikers in Curaçao. From comments during my guided hikes I have learnt that a lot of people like hiking but don't want or dare to hike on their own. This group could help these hikers to get company during their intended hikes. By creating an event in the group or by posting their intended hike in the group they can invite other members of the group to attend their hike.
At the end of the year 2019 I will stop organizing weekly hikes. No specific reason; I just decided that after 6 years of doing this the moment has come to do something else. I certainly will continue hiking and taking pictures, just no longer as a guide but as a participant or on my own.
I have decided to keep the facebook page of Curaçao Hiking alive and to use that page to further promote hiking in Curaçao.
With the introduction of the new version of the hike to the Kabrietenberg (Mountain of the goats) a new challenging hike became part of the offering. I would classify the different routes as follows:
These two hikes will be done in a higher pace than my other hikes and with less explanation during the hike.
