  • Not sure if it has been temprarely/permanently closed or if it gets closed too early but we arrived on Dec 17th 2017 at 4:01 PM and it was closed so we could see inside the cave.  more »
  • Interesting place to even see the drawing of natives... but, it is pretty scarry... bats in the back, black widows, ceterpies (sp?) that eat flesh... on a side of it , there is a pond , where you can ...  more »
  • We visited the Fontein Cave during a tour to Arikok National park by ABC tours, Aruba. Yes..... live bats included. Not for the claustrophobic. Enjoy!  more »

  • 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.
  • Be sure to add this and the whole natural park location as a place to visit. Its a great escape for a first timer.
  • The national park is open 24 hours, but they lock the gate to fontein cave at 330... which was pretty disappointing because you are charged to get in and we arrived 10 minutes after they locked it. :(
  • Awesome cave! Lookout for bats!
  • Cave not as impressive as the other in the park, but a national park guide provided a short (10 minute) tour that reviewed the historical significance of the park and explained what all of the cave drawings were and meanings behind them. Guide even took our picture at a few places where the natural light allowed for an amazing pic.
