Geocache Description:

This cache is not at the above listed coordinates!
You will need to complete a special Wherigo cartridge in order to get the correct coordinates.



THE BIRD

The green violetear is a medium-sized, metallic green hummingbird species commonly found in forested areas from Mexico to northern South America. The green violetear belongs to the order Apodiformes. Hummingbirds share this order with the swifts, such as the white-collared swift. The name Apodiformes is derived from the Greek words "a pous," meaning "without foot." While apodiforms do in fact have feet, they are quite small and their legs are short and relatively weak. Many birds in this order cannot walk, and thus rarely if ever land on the ground since quick escape from predators is virtually impossible. For this reason members of this order spend a majority of their time in the air.

Curacao Geocaching Absolutely Essentials

Water Particularly when the heat picks up, don't take a chance with dehydration. Take along a water bottle or two to keep yourself going.
A pen Although larger caches and some micros will have a pen or pencil, many will not. Pens dry out in the elements. So you really should always bring your own.
Hiking boots Sneakers will do for some urban caches, but most caches on Curacao are located in rougher the terrain. Hiking boots provide superior sole and ankle support and have saved me from cactus needles more then once.
Thorns All plants on the island are 'pika', so wear boots, long trousers and other protection.
Poisonous Plants There are a few on the island so watch out for them.
A Cell phone Or better a smartphone, so you can call for help, use it as a backup-GPS and take some nice pictures.
CITO please do collect and dispose of litter found along the way.
