Create an itinerary including Hato Caves
Once home to the Amerindian Arawaks 1500 years ago, Hato Caves still contain many of the petroglyphs left behind by their original inhabitants. A comfortable, paved trail leads you deep into the Earth, winding through stalagmites, stalactites, and other bizarre rock formations. You’ll have a guide on hand to relay stories of how man's relationship with the caves has evolved over time, while also explaining the geology behind the caves' formation. With steep paths and steps, entering the caves can present difficulties for people with mobility issues. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Willemstad using our trip planner.

  • Our guide was so good, and took his time explaining the history of the caves, and all the details about how they were formed and how they continue to evolve.

  • The cave system consists of a few caverns with the standard stalactite and stalagmite formations. The air inside the caves is warm and the entire tour only takes about an hour. It is worth a stop...

  • Interesting geological formations, friendly guide, clean restrooms. The history of how the caves were discovered and inhabited is interesting as well. Nice gardens around the caves, but we had no time to explore everything.
  • Last minute - what are we going to do today - turned out to be a great experience on Curacao. Sam and Kai were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides with a sense of humor. You should take time to see this awesome place.
