Driving the rental at here without directions (no one
At our resort could describe how to get here!) was half the fun. Beautiful hike - if hot and steamy - enjoyed the plant life along the way and the easy scramble to make the top. Shares the summit with Dutch, Canadians and
Others. Great views! Happy to sip a drink in the pool at the beach later that day.
One of 4 Caribbean highpoints in a week Date Climbed: Dec 23, 2011
My family and I cruised the southern Caribbean on an 8-night voyage out of San Juan, Puerto Rico. I hiked this one using a rental car out of Willemstad. I met a couple (Peter and Chantelle)from the Toronto area at the trailhead and hiked with them most of the way up. This summit was preceded by successful summits of Pic Paradis, St. Martin on 12/19 and Mount Branderis, Bonaire on 12/22; and followed by a successful summit of Mount Jamanota, Aruba on 12/24.
