  • The cave appears to be quite large, the visit is only the very beginning of it, after dark eh mto has many bats. The interesting part of the site are the marks of the colonizers of many years intact. And some Indians too antiguissimos records. I went as part of the 4 x 4 tours

  • A fascinating cave on the northern coast of the island. There are times when it is totally dark so some sort of light is recommended. There is a spot inside the cave where natural light comes inside. If you are there at sunset, you can witness the many bats leaving the cave to go and feed. This place is not for the claustrophobic or squeamish.
  • Small cave with an attendant. This one has markings made by Arawak Indians who were here around 4000 years ago. Seeping water has made many colorful formations on the walls. Within few steps on the caves is a pond with fish which will give you a pedicure or manicure. It was a fun experience for those of us who were experiencing it for the first time.
  • Cool, but not as cool as Aruba advertises.
  • Be sure to add this and the whole natural park location as a place to visit. Its a great escape for a first timer.
  • Beautiful caves, fascinating cave paintings, nice little picnic area to the side, beautiful spring down the hiking path.
