Hey guys, it’s Niko, on location in Curacao, SHETE BOKA National Park. Yep, that’s me in the photo, traveling from down in the national park up to the top. My mom is freaking out because I climbed down here, but you gotta to! Let me share with you what to leave behind at SHETE BOKA National Park.
We got off the cruise ship and went on this private tour. So far, this has been the best part of the tour because we get to get out of the van and actually do stuff!
So, today we are in Curacao, traveling all around the country, learning about it, and spending time at the National Park of SHETE BOKA. SHETE Boka for those that don’t know is a natural conservation center and park.
You pay a fee to enter, it is on the website it is $3. But that is not what happened when we went. You should have been with our private driver, whoa did she let the admissions person have a piece of it. They quoted a price of $3 a person and when we got to the gate they tried to charge us $11 a person. No worries, when you have a good personal driver, they take care of all the stuff that goes wrong. She got her way and we paid the price on the site, not the made-up price of the day, so tell your parents!
Where Niko Travels Tip For SHETE BOKA
Tip: Do not wear flip-flops or open toe shoes here. Wear serious hiking shoes or athletic shoes. The ground is not stable, it is rugged. The paths have stones, and can rip up your feet easily.
Boka means inlet. Turtles come here to nest. We are at BOKA TABLA one of the cave inlets where water comes spilling on it. IT is very rugged, very dangerous and you have to stay on the path. Ask me if my mom did not repeat that like 100x. Seriously, it is dangerous so be careful, the driver told us a lot of people fall to their death here!
What To Leave Behind At SHETE BOKA National Park.
From above, my brother and sister and I noticed a lot of little pyramids built where I am walking from, so we were really curious. We climbed down a rough trail, and as you go you see lizards all over the place super cool!
Then once there, we left behind what everyone else was leaving, our own tower of rocks built from the SHETE BOKA rocks. What to leave behind after a visit to SHETE BOKA National Park? A rock tower.
Where Niko Travels is happy to share with you what to leave behind at SHETE BOKA National Park, because it is cool, and costs zero. Don’t forget your Instagram photo.
