Hato Caves was an okay experience. We walked from the airport…maybe don’t do that. We were happy that they made a concession and let us join the tour 10 minutes late because we had a taxi coming for us. They also kept our luggage behind...More

Neat little place to see. Very knowledgeable staff. Good for adults as well as children. Several steps to climb to the top cave entrance then a short tour that shows several different areas of the cave. We were also able to see some bats!

The location is by the airport and great to stop in before you leave... But I was expecting to see more native carving along the trail and could barely see any. The Caves were really fun but beware of the steps you have to climb......More

Very interesting caves formed by the sea and shifting plates that elevated the landscape. You must go with the tour guide (can't go in on your own, it's locked) but the tours are pretty regular. I wouldn't be in a huge hurry as it did...More

These caves aren't big, so it won't take much time or effort to visit them, which I really recommend for both people new to caves as well as more experienced people. For people new to caves: it is nice and small so you can try...More

The caves are across the street from the airport, easy to find and participate in. The walk is easy, just 49 steps to get to the entrance and paved walkways inside. Apparently, these caves were where slaves fled from their plantation to hide. Tour takes...More

Kudos to our tour guide, who explained all of the details in the cave. I wish I got his name to give full recognition. However, he was a tall older black man. A friendly man. It was hot and humid inside the cave, but oscillating...More

Far to expensive. Just pay at the location itself. About $10-12. Enjoy. Definitely worth seeing
