Best of the West Tour of Curacao
Get to know the western side of Curacao on this comprehensive tour. With a guide's insightful commentary, you'll learn much more about the island's history and culture than you would traveling on your own. Take an easy hike on a trail where your guide will point out the local sea turtles and learn all about their biology and behavior. Hotel pickup and drop-off, as well as a picnic lunch, make for an all-details-included experience.
What to Expect

After pickup from your hotel or the dock, head to the rural West side of the island. There you will take a light hike in a nature reserve to the rugged North Coast of Curacao, where the waves are crashing into the moon landscape of cratered rocks. Discover a narrow bay cutting into the rock plateau where turtles nest and can be seen swimming, grazing and coming up for air.

Next stop is Shete Boka National Park to visit the famous Boka Tabla cave, which is connected underground to the ocean. From here, travel further West and get ready for a swim and snorkel at one of Curacao's unique cove beaches. There is the possibility of spotting sea turtles. At this beach, have a picnic lunch and enjoy some free time to relax on the beach.

A visit to a local historical plantation house completes the tour of the hilly green West side of Curacao. You will return to your hotel or ship in time for cocktails at the pool.
