  • But not spectacular. 2 caves, light coming in which is nice, but I've been in much bigger and more beautiful caves in Bonito, Brazil  more »
  • If you’re in the area you should do a quick stop by these caves. They’re neat to see. If you are someone that digs hiking in caves or spelunking- don’t get your hopes up. This is definitely not one of...  more »
  • An unforgettable adventure. We enter 150 meters between bats. It was chillingly touching and loved children.

  • Close to Vader Piet Entrance by the windmills, this cave is a part of the national park. Unlike Fontein Cave, there is no guide at this cave - likely because there are no historical drawings on the walls. That means you can spend as much time as you want here. There are two chambers illuminated through multiple holes in the cave roof. You may need to use a flashlight to navigate. There is also a small subpart of the second chamber which you can navigate with proper flashlight. There are bats in the cave.
  • Awesome cave, cool light tunnel
  • Fun place to visit . If you meet the right park ranger he’ll show you the secret cave drawings. Worth the trip!
  • Quite unusual place for Aruba. Legend tells everything about this cave.
  • Big cave with lots of rooms and easy to navigate as a couple big rooms have skylights (holes in ceiling to outside...). Signs reminding you to be quiet since bats live inside, which we saw plenty of!
