Fun, quick outing. The history of the caves was great as were the tours in multiple languages. The snack stop and bar there are a great addition. The caves are not cool as expected but actually rather warm. If you have been to Harrison’s Cave...More

This was a stop on our buggy tour and we went into the bat caves and climbed to the top. The view is spectacular.

Hato Caves was one of our first stops on a tour of Curacao. The caves are interesting because they are above ground. It does not take a long time to cover the three chambers and our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I think families with...More

Today we've visited the Hato Caves with not much more expectations than see caves and bats, but the local tour guide makes a difference for us. His expression and touch with our group was so amazing that I must admit our expectations were absolutely crossed...More

If you've toured larger caves and have limited time on the island, skip this tour. It was fun to see the bats, but not that interesting as far as caves go. As this cave was higher than sea level, it was hot and humid inside...More

Sorry I did not do the caves on a combined beach tour, I did the cave on my own. I have been to many of the beaches on Curacao and the most popular ones all rent beach chairs so if you are on a tour my guess is there will... More

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