Go here for something different than beaches

Almost across the road from airport, easy to find. $8 pp entrance fee. Ok price - quality balance. The cave is protected by the government but commercially exploited by private... read more

I've read some reviews that this is not all that impressive due to having seen some others caves much bigger. I'll admit I've been to those caves too, but I feel this is a great attraction for Curacao and well worth the money and time spent there. Loved the history of the caves and make sure to take advantage of... More

We were in Curacao for two weeks, this was one of the highlights. We went without high expectations, but these are not just caves- they are caves with history. And the guides are funny and make it such a delight. Go!

Loved the guide, lovely personality, very knowledgeable about history, etc. Bats not active so don't worry. Steps were very steep going to cave, but not a problem for our family. (Wear something besides slick sandals.) Inside cave was interesting. I liked this tour but most in my family were a little bored. If you have never been in a cave,... More

Almost across the road from airport, easy to find. $8 pp entrance fee. Ok price - quality balance. The cave is protected by the government but commercially exploited by private party on lease basis. 30 min tour into the cave. Well maintained, with enough lamps and fans, smooth walking path - easy to do for all ages though you need... More

It's a cave, but you have to go UP to get inside, rather than down. Now that's different! The tour guide was excellent. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, funny, energetic. There are 6 chambers within the cave, some have natural lighting so they allow photography. As long as you are not claustrophobic I highly recommend a visit. (The cave is not small... just... More

Nice tour to experience and bring children as long as they are not too small (maybe 10 and up). Our tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable she made it fun and interesting at the same time. I would highly recommend this tour to those first time cave explorers like me.

The thing I liked the most is the attention and good attitude of the people in this place! The host that gave us the tour was very funny and kind, he has knoledge of the caves and geneal history... The caves are small but interesting.
