The tour was interesting and our tour guide had a wry sense of humour. 'Blind sight' worth experiencing.

We had a vert and educational Sunday morning in the Hato caves, which are rather located up (a plateau) than down (under the ground). Our guide was a very nice guy and thought us more about the history of Curaçao that lead to the forming of the caves (including some awesome stalactites and stalagmites). Also, slaves from the Hato plantation fled and hid in the caves, until they where caught and recaptured while steeling food. You can still see the soot of their fires on the caves roof. Furthermore, you can expect bats and the occasional cockroach. But no other creepy crawlies. We brought our one year old and the first thing we wanted to know is: can you visit with a small child? The answer is yes! We parked our buggy at the bar (which was closed due to Covid-19) and carried him in (you do have to navigate 49 steps up and down. And although the inside of the cave is paved, there are still some steps. Alternative option would be a baby sling). And finally, there were appropriate social distancing measures and group size was very small (we were with one other family of three and a solo man).

This was interesting and the guide was informative. However there are very steep steps to climb in order to reach the entrance of the caves...and it was hot.

The caves was really beautiful and interesting and we enjoyed our tour. Our guide was good explaining at showing everything. After the tour we took the walking tour outside witch was also nice. If you start taking a picture of the board, so you know what you are looking at and then take the walk. This is something you do on your own. We recommend that you get there early to avoid to many tourists and to big guided groups.

We visited the caves as part of an excursion from our cruise ship. This was such an interesting natural wonder. Our guide at the cave was Mr. John who was both informative and funny and a pleasure to be with and experience this place through him as well as seeing the wonders. He was even able to point out some of the residents of the caves (aka bats) which was really cool to see.
