Q1 copyIn October I started a survey to find out if my current choices for hiking days and times were what my hikers prefer. I aimed at 100 responses and finally got 97 so it is time to report the results.

The survey was posted on facebook and was seen by 5510 people at least once and for most people twice. From these 5510 200 people clicked on the link to go to the survey (3.6%) and 97 actually filled out the survey (1.8%). Although these percentages seem low they are not uncommon for anonymous surveys.
The below mentioned results are based on the responses that I got; so they apply to the people that responded to my questions. Others may have another opinion but they passed on the opportunity to express their opinion (98%) or they never got the survey presented.


Are the hikes suitable for children?

A question that I get with a certain regularity is if the hikes are suitable for children. My answer: it depends. Not really useful isn't it? So let me try to be more specific.

It depends on a lot of factors. The most important factor is the difficulty of the hike. A number of my hikes are on reasonably flat terrain. These kind of hikes are more suitable for kids than a hike in which we climb a hill. A second important factor is if the kid is used to hiking. My hikes take between 2 to 3 hours. Has the child the condition to fulfill such a hike?

Curaçao is a paradise for hiking. Especially in the rain season the nature is very lush and green. But also during the dry season there is enough to explore. Curaçao has a rich history and there is still a lot visible of this history for the once who know where to look for it. There are historical indian sites, there are remains of the period in which large plantations were kept and there are remains of the period in which the island had to be defended from unwanted outsiders.
