5 awesome ways to treat your Dad this Fathers Day, Curacao-style...

1. Take him golfing

You may be surprised to learn that Curacao is an awesome, popular golfing location, because:
Click to order them, from Cafepress, delivered to his door :)
Or treat him to some new funky golf balls...
    I need these
  • it's almost always sunny
  • there's almost always an ocean breeze to keep things cool
  • you can play virtually 365 days a year, from 6.00 in the morning until 7.00 at night
  • there are three golf courses: Curacao Golf & Squash Club, Santa Or treat him to some new funky golf balls...Barbara and Blue Bay.

2. Take him climbing, pottering, wandering, exploring, discovering...

Christoffel Park

You may be surprised to learn that Curacao has a mountain.

Christoffel Park is Curacao's largest national park, and home to Curacao's highest point - Mount Christoffel - and a rich variety of flora and fauna. 

At only 372 metres / 1,220 ft high, climbing Mount Christoffel doesn't sound like much of a challenge.

But trust us: it's no walk in the park (arf, arf).

Starting from the visitor’s center, the hike to, and the climb up and down Mount Christoffel, takes approximately three hours. Or save an hour and park at the foot of the mountain. Beautiful vegetation, wildlife and geological formations will motivate you on the uphill climb, and spectacular views are your reward for reaching the top.

If an easy stroll is more your thing, choose from one of the seven other hiking trails.

You'll still get to enjoy bird and plant species you may not see elsewhere on the island, like wild orchids (Palabrua), the rare native barn owl and the Curacao White Tailed deer (of which there are only about 250 left).

Curacao also has plenty more hiking and walking options - start here...
