The limestone cave were beautiful and there were so many different formations. This was a walking tour and we had a very good guide. We even got to see some bats flying around. The guide turned off the lights and it was extremely BLACK. Outside were lots of cactus plants and iguanas. We had to climb some stairs to get... More

The tour was good and the guide was very knowledgeable. It was so hot inside which was unexpected. If you go to Curacao, you should really check out the caves.

This is pretty neat to see if you like this kind of thing and does not take long, just a whole different site from the beaches.

Came at little before noon, which was when the tour started (I guess it runs every hour or so). Very interesting to see w/ the geologic history, the bats, and our entertaining tour guide. The tour is just a half an hour. There is also a bar onsite where you can grab a quick drink and snack while you wait.

Great guide and interesting. I can't judge caves much as this is the first I've been to, but I enjoyed it. It's a short ride from the Cruise port.

Nice tour as it has something of real interest. Not a long tour, only 40 min or so and is only $6 pp. Highly recommend.

Nice caves with 6 main rooms. The guide was very good, repeating his talk in multiple languages for the group to all understand... fortunately English was one of them for us! You will see bats and the usual stalagtite/mite formations. They do protect portions from pictures, so plan on experiencing while you are there and not having much for pictures... More

This site was fantastic to learn about some of the island's history. Be sure to ask your guide lots of questions, they speak great English (they are also fluent in Dutch and Spanish). I'm not a fan of bats and didn't realize that we would be making a pit stop to view them - kind of terrifying, though to be... More

Visiting the caves was a nice experience. The guide was very informative. It was a relatively short tour which required walking and climbing steps. The nice thing about these caves are the fact that they have tried not to over commercialize it and aspire to keep it as natural as possible.
