  • The Guadirikiri Cave is one of the many, and one of the more interesting, stops along Aruba’s surprisingly arid, remote and rough north coast that can be reached by organized tour or by renting an ATV...  more »
  • Fascinating cave, not to be missed. A little tip for photographers who let go before others when leaving the cave. The dispersed dust makes class shine sunlight on photos.

  • Somewhat difficult to get into and very dark in some spots. Need a flashlight. A stop on our tour. The facade is eerie looking and interesting formations inside.  more »

  • Good caves. Can become hot and damp in summers(ie always). It can be covered quickly too
  • Not a long stop, but very worth it! You don't need an SUV or 4x4, but it's a slow drive along a very bumpy and uneven road to get there. Amazing roof openings with the sun streaming down giving a very other worldly effect. There are numerous little bats in the cave which don't bother you if you don't bother them. You can actually get relatively close to get a good look at them too! I would definitely bring a flashlight, even if just for a few dark places, as the floor can be a little slippery.
  • We went to this spot on a UTV tour really pretty and this is not like when you visit caves in the states. No paths you just walk in and wander!
  • Cool sight to see. Also with bats!
  • Awsome cave that you can freely explore.
