More scenes from Curacao

I am linking up with Scenic Sunday

I have some more scenic shots from my vacation trip to Cucacao.
These are various shots from around the island during our jeep tour. You can click on the photos for a larger image.


Local Curacao artist Yubi Kirindongo uses junk parts to create contemporary art. A very cool way to recycle. The crates look like they create a nice shaded spot in the yard.


Above the artist used broken clay pieces to create animal shapes on this cliff wall.

Here is another creation a cute smiley face. The artist has pieces all around the island.

We also visited just one of the many island caves, using flashlights we went inside the cave called Kueba di Brua.


Besides the usual stalagmites and the stalactites there was a green color on various formations.

Curacao has a semiarid climate and the flora differs from the usual tropical island vegetation. Xeric shrublands are common along with various forms of cacti.


Above the a blowhole Suplado is considered a natural jacuzzi. Above you can see one of the other jeep drivers cooling off in the wave driven spray.




I hope you enjoyed my Curacao scenery and photos.

  6. I thought that roof was made from giant legos. Probably algae growing on the cave formations. I Like that blowhole. Nice shots from your trip.

  7. Those are some interesting shots. I especially love the path between the cacti. Amazing. But I'm always in favor of cool breeze and mist....blowholes are so much fun. We had one on my island of Sal in Cape Verde years ago. Just had to be careful around some of the slippery rocks:) Fun shots!
