“Interesting”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

We viewed these caves when we were on our buggy tour, very interesting. You have to climb to get into these, so not for people with mobility issues. Great view once you arrive.

“Day Trip”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

This was worth the trip to the airport. The guide was knowledgable and even our kids 5 and 9 found it to be a highlight of our day trip. The only negative is that you can not freely take pictures but there are specific points within the caves where photos are permitted. This is to preserve the caves and is understandable. There are man made steps inside so walking is not an issue. Try to go when there is no tour bus! We were leaving as a tour bus was starting their tour and with so many people I don't think you'd get the same experience.

“Interesting but average”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

Caves are gorgeous, but it's guided tour only -- no walking around on your own at all. No pictures either, except in one small area -- to preserve the moss in the caves. 45 minutes well spent, but not exceptional.

“Very small cave”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

We've been in a hundred caves and absolutely love them. As caves go this is small and below average, the tour, with the guide talking quite a bit, is only 30 minutes. Our guide was a good one though. There aren't a lot of outdoor sights to visit on Curacao so if you have the time it's worth it but don't go out of your way.
