Weg naar Hato, Willemstad

The Basics

The Hato Caves are the most prominent caves on the Caribbean island of Curacao. Visitors can take a 20-minute self-guided walk to see carvings by the Caiquetio people done more than 1,500 years ago or join a 1-hour guided tour, which takes place several times throughout the day and explains the legends and history of this underground world. A stop at the caves can be coupled with other Curacao attractions such as the ostrich farm.

Curacao Beach and Hato Caves Tour
Alex and Aida were the best tourguides! We had an island tour, saw the flamingoes, Hato Caves, shopped and went to Kokomo Beach (sooo beautiful)! Dont forget to try the Watermelon Flamingo when you go! Only downside, no wifi at the beach :(

Curacao Beach and Hato Caves Tour
Great experience, Alejandro was very knowledgeable about the island facts. They were on time, bus was air conditioned and it was a small tour. We had a great time. They took us to Mambo Beach and we had fresh food at Bonito

Bob was our tour guide. He knew a lot about the areas that we toured. Bouncy bus ride. The offer of refreshments and snorkel gear rentals included made this a great tour. Recommend if you have a full day in Curacao.
