Surroundings enviroment

Plantation houses ('Landhuizen') have always been built on the most beautiful spots in Curaçao. The views are spectacular and the houses often adjoin a bay or lagoon. Landhuis Groot Santa Martha is no exception and is situated in the most glorious natural scenery. From Landhuis Groot Santa Martha's rear terrace, you can see the bay and saltpans, and also Landhuis Saint Nicolaas and Landhuis Klein Santa Martha in the distance.


A walk through the property takes visitors to idyllic spots where fearless iguanas and native birds mingle with horses, cows, pedigree goats and sheep. While hiking, you can enjoy the beautiful flora and fauna of this area with its wealth of plant species typical to Curaçao, some very rare that can only be admired at Santa Martha. Preservation of the environment and nature are given high priority at Santa Martha.


An orchard, nursery garden, vegetable and herbs garden, and a farm with cows, goats, sheep and horses makes Landhuis Groot Santa Martha the place where the distance between man and nature makes way for a direct contact with everything that lives and flourishes.


Horsebackriding is possible for individuals and groups on the idyllic terrains of Santa Martha and in the neigbourhood. Call us to make an appointment in advance.
