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.

Hato Caves Reviews
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.... more »
Very hot and humid in the caves. Paths are well established and fairly well lit. Rock formations are okay but nothing spectacular. Bats in the caves but they were not a problem. more »
Fantastic caves. Excellent tour guide is well educated in the history of the caves. The walking path inside the cave is easy to walk, but beware of you have mobility issues as the 49 stairs leading up to the cave could be difficult for some.
As part of our tour we hit up the caves. Was a great stop. Very cool. Dont let the boat tell you that it's a mild to moderate climb. Not for anyone not stable on their feet. We had 4 old people on our tour that had to sit out. Decent climb to cave entrance. Be prepared. Other than that it's a very cool place. Love the bats!
