Hato Caves, Willemstad

4.0
#3 of 15 in Parks in Willemstad
Once home to the Amerindian Arawaks 1500 years ago, Hato Caves still contain many of the petroglyphs left behind by their original inhabitants. A comfortable, paved trail leads you deep into the Earth, winding through stalagmites, stalactites, and other bizarre rock formations. You’ll have a guide on hand to relay stories of how man's relationship with the caves has evolved over time, while also explaining the geology behind the caves' formation. With steep paths and steps, entering the caves can present difficulties for people with mobility issues. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Willemstad using our trip planner.

  • Definately a do not miss attraction. The thought of going didnt really thrill me but I was very glad i went. Friendly knowledgeable staff. They also give tours in more than one language.
  • Make sure to dress cool. A bit too warm at times but very beautiful.
