This was a nice break from the hot sun and reasonably priced. The tour guide made the overall experience. He appeared to be very knowledgeable about the Caves history and seemed to enjoy his job. The caves were in great condition and was about the right amount of time as it does get hot inside with little air.

The cave tour was nice. The staff are really really nice. I wish the tour was longer - only about 30 minutes long.

Our tour guide was very good and very informative. You can't take any photography at the beginning of the tour (as flashes will disturb the bats) but later on photographs can be taken. It is surprisingly warm within the caves and fans are distributed throughout, so don't worry about feeling cold. They were not the best caves that I have... More

We stopped at the Hato Caves as part of our Island Experience Tour, and it was by far the best part of the attractions we stopped at. This is a guided tour, and no one is able to go in alone. There are a lot of stairs to enter the cave, but once inside the paths are smooth with easy... More

We booked an all day tour with Dushi Taxi and our driver, Natasha, took us to Hato Caves. None of us thought we were dressed for a cave (imagining the cold and wet caves we're used to in Canada) however these caves were not cold at all and had poured concrete paths that were well lit and easily navigated in...

Interesting caves, very warm inside as they are so high above the water line. Tour guide had a great sense of humor and made it fun. Not a huge cave, but interesting if you have some time to spare.

This experience is a must if you come down here. I honestly thought it was going to be boring, but heating the history was quite amazing.

Caves are beautiful and interesting to visit. The tour guide spoke English and Dutch to help all members of the group understand the history of the caves. We couldn't see the cave writing trail due to trees being down. It was a fun quick trip in our day exploring the island.

The first thing you should know is that Hato Caves are *hot* not cold caves. Come prepared. The experience is interesting, as the caves have quite a bit of history behind them as well as some beautiful sights. The tour is pretty short, however, and you only get to see several rooms of the extensive cave system. Photography is only... More
