Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Following pickup at your hotel, have a seat in a open-air Jeep and take off on your eco-adventure. 

Your guide will transport you across the island's desert, filled with red clay and scrubby native plants. Arrive at the 6-mile (10-km) Shete Boka National Park, a protected area of rocky terrain on Curacao's northern coast. 

Climb down from the Jeep to explore an ancient cave on foot. Hear about the geology and history of these interesting rock formations, then continue to some remote inlets further up the shoreline. Pause for spectacular photo ops of pounding surf, sea spray and coral and limestone cliffs. 

Loook for herons, frigate birds and hawks swooping down for their meal from the sea. At a nearby beach, look for nests where turtles have laid their eggs or see one crawling along the sand. 

Return to the Jeep and head for Supladó, a blowhole where warm ocean water shoots into the surrounding crater. Don your bathing suit and climb in to relax in this naturally formed hot tub, admiring the rainbows that form overhead due to the constant sea spray.

Your last stop is Play Lagun, a family-friendly beach that boasts spectacular snorkeling. Put on the provided mask, fins and snorkel, then head out into the shallows to float in the waters of the peaceful cove. See schools of tropical fish, sea turtles and impressive coral formations.

After exploring Curacao's myriad of natural attractions, enjoy drop-off back at your hotel.

Proceed With Caution

Actually I would give them zero stars if possible. Proceed with caution if you book with them. When you book, the only time mentioned is 9:00 a.m., however, if you don’t have access to phone and email service while in Curacao you won’t receive the email saying meeting time is 8:30 and they will not refund your money when they leave without you.

Our tour guide, Long, did a wonderful job in Curaçao. We explored beaches, desert areas, the national park, had time for a lunch, and he was friendly to all. We saw a big portion of the island and he shared some interesting facts about it. Thank you, Long!

We saw a lot of the countryside and visited amazing places tour buses could not access. Howard and his assistant were exceptional and very informative throughout the tour, though I would not recommend the iguana soup. However the tour was advertised as a jeep 4x4 tour yet we spent a good part of the 6 plus hours on the back of a Toyota pickup truck, sitting on cushioned plastic chairs. Only 1 hour was allocated to snorkelling and we were not too impressed with the variety of marine life though others spotted a turtle and squid. Lunch was a simple bun with 3 different types of filling. If you want to experience the back dirt and muddy roads of a beautiful sub tropical island, then this tour is for you.

we had such a great time on this tour! we were able to see pretty much the entire island from the back of an open air jeep. the island is so beautiful and our tour guide was really fun and knowledgable! we were able to see the fossilized, coral beach on the north side, the windmills that support the island electricity, and the bokas were spectacular! the highlight of the trip was swimming inches away from beautiful green sea turtles! they are pretty much guaranteed to be there due to the local fisherman throwing the scraps from their days catch back into the ocean.

Uhhh... this review is so hard to write... Our guide, totally 5 stars!! He was so knowledgeable about the island as we went all over the west side and he even introduced us to Iguana Soup! if you have the opportunity, try it! It tastes like chicken noodle Snorkeling on the west side beach was great and our guide noticed we weren't getting the full experience so he came in and said follow me! I'm so glad he did, we saw schools of fish that had to have been in the thousands! He pointed out some sand snake thing and an eel. This was definitely the best part of the day all thanks to him! Now... for the not so great... On our way to the caves in the morning, we had to do some off roading, which was totally expected and fine... however the truck we were in broke down not once, not twice, but FOUR times. We could tell he was getting frustrated with the situation because it made him do his job inefficiently and it also pushed us back time-wise. The truck was old and had obviously had similar problems before. They need new vehicles.

Must Do! Hop onto Jeep, tour the back roads to the Caves. Our guide was fantastic. He taught us about the local living and culture too as we drove. The park had natural blow holes that misted us! Awe explored the caves it was cool 1 room is full of Bats. We saw a beach full of Pink Flamingos. We went snorkeling to a local beach with sea turtles and lots of other fish. Picnic style lunch was included as were water and punch. Overall a very fun day.

Really fun adventure! The guide was funny and told us really cool fun facts. The tour was nice, with beautiful places. I liked the off road kind of tour it was, so not a lot of people ou tourists. If you like outdoor activities or visiting natural parks, this tour is perfect.
