Lesson number one for the experiential traveler: get your bearings as soon as you hit the ground, especially on an island so manageable in size. Curaçao is only about 40 miles long and 10 miles wide. Roaming through the flat, rugged terrain, weaving through many an inlet with the limestone cliffs in view and the wind at your back, you will find your sense of adventure here. These yellow jeeps make guided safari trips supercharged with priceless insight on the flora and fauna of the land. Some favorite moments include a visit to Brua cave, ancient escape slave hideout and, of course, the excellent drive through the Christoffel Park nature preserve, where you may spot unique animal and plant species like the White Tailed deer (only 250 remain), or, in an area exclusive to park rangers, beautiful wild orchids.
