During our island tour, we made a stop to Boca Tabla. It was raining but still manage to walk (carefully) to the steps down the cave. Didn't make it too far down but great experience. Scary even, when you see the waves crash in. The best part was being by the ocean and seeing its grandeur. Memorable experience

We visited Boca Tabla inside Shete Boca National Park while traveling in a rental car to the northwest end of the island. We very much enjoyed our stop here, even though it was brief. The area is all limestone underfoot and sea life fossils can be seen with every step. We saw a "cave" (more like a passageway carved by... More

Boca Tabla in the Shete Boca National Park area in the northwest of Curacao is a great natural attraction, probably the best we visited during our week-long stay. The four different inlets all offered great views, unique sights and a nice brush with nature. It was also fun to watch all the wildlife scurry, especially the occassional large iguana that... More

My wife and I visited the different areas of Boca Tabla and loved all of them. It is a pretty good drive from Williamsted if all you are planning to do is go to Boca Tabla, but if yoo are sight seeing on the northwestern of the island I highly recommend visiting this area.

Boca Tabla is located within the isolated Shete Boca National Park. There is a small admission fee to get into the park that will provide you with a map of the area. You can drive to small parking lot areas nearby the sites and walk up or hike the entire length of the park. It is amazing to see the... More

Boca Tabla/Shete Boca Park is worth seeing if you have time. You can drive to the views or hike. Not far to walk. Drinks and snacks available.

Boca Tabla offered a nice little get away from staying on the beach. There is a nice little map that leads to a couple points of interest. We enjoyd our 2 hour walk around.

Super cheap to get in. Friendly folks at the gate who will help you figure out where to go. You drive to the various bocas and see amazing shows put on by nature! Do this right after touring Christoffel National Park -- it's right down the road. Nice nature day.

Northern part of the island and away from everything. It was worth the time and effort. I believe it was $4 dollars to get in. We were lucky enough to drive to boka pistol and up to the caves. Both were very neat and the pictures we took are great. It would be rough if one had to walk the... More
