Be aware of 50 or so steps up to the entrance. Generally easy walk inside. Our guide Russell was informative and entertaining. They had fans to keep the air moving.

These caves were really interesting and worth the trip to drive to see. Our tour guide Daisy was excellent in his stories and information about the caves.

While being in Curacao and you are a bit tired of the sun and beaches, the Hato Caves are a very nice alternative. A visit will take you into the deep caves, with bats, small pond and a magical room. The guides are usually great....More

Very nice caves, large and atmospheric. Underwater lake type water. Visited on a rainy day and still worth seeing.

Never thought I'd make it up the 49 steps but I did and it was worth it. Very interesting and not hard to traverse. Guides are very informative.

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