My husband and I enjoy seeing historical and natural wonders; hence Hato Caves were a must when we visited Curacao! Although we arrived on a very hot and humid day, which made entering the caves even hotter and more humid, it was a great experience all around. The tour of the caves is a walking tour. There are rugged stone... More

We visited the caves in July 2015. There is a guided tour in English (the guide was great and spoke excellent English). In the end, there was a possibility to do a self-guided tour of the local "gardens". Wonderful, wonderful...it was great do to something different than just eating and snorkling in Curacao. :)

Hato caves is a beautiful place to visit. The caves themselves are pretty big, and the tour guides know how to tell a nice story and answer all questions asked about the cave and its formation. The lighting in the caves give it a surreal feeling to watch. Just note that inside the caves it is hot and very humid,... More

A trip to the Hato Caves makes a lovely trip and can be done in about an hour or so. I recommend taking the tour, where you will learn fascinating information about these caves, from their discovery by runaway slaves to geological information!

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
