Jan Thiel Lagoon, located on the southeast side of the island, is a very popular area for local mountain bikers of all levels. The area is one of the most unique nature reserves on Curacao characterized by its rare vegetation, exceptional bird life, and unspoiled views. The salt flats here are still intact and the land house Jan Thiel,is beautifully restored. During the rainy season this area is not always accessible. From the Lions Dive & Beach Hotel you’ll find the mountain bike trail that was developed for World Cup Mountain Biking race to Curacao in 2006.
