Who would have thought that these two caves, renowned in folklore as the site where two lovers burst through rock and into heaven, would be so dark, damp, gritty and full of bats?

It was nice to cool down inside the cave and get away from the hot and humid sun. We walked all the way inside, very nice.

So this is a little drive from the main hotels, but way worth it. It is accessible by basic car but they are dirt roads. One of my favorite things about Aruba, definitely read the history of Arawak people before going.

Really mysterious cave with a lot dark spots. All the way to the end there is a "cell" where the princess was kept. It's a must see. Watch out for the bats!

Unlike the closeby Fontein cave, this cave is really worth a visit. Get inside and just imagine yourself as an inhabitant 10,000 years ago. Would have been the best available property around! The cave is made of different chambers, easily accessible, with natural light openings....More

The caves are spectacular in itself with their inside rock formations but the natural light through the ceilings makes the experience dramatic and mesmerizing. The entrance is quite steep and uneven, and the access between the caves is dark and uneven as well. Wear good...More

My husband and I went to the caves for the first time today. The stalactites and stalagmites were beautiful. We found the openings at the top of the cave gorgeous as the sun shined in brightly. Our guide Jason from Fofoti tours was knowledgeable and...More

We rented a midsize car for $38 from Econo Car rental and drove through Arikok National Park and explored the caves. Well worth the trip to see the other side of the island. Beautiful ocean side with dirt rock and cacti, as ground cover. Way...More

Very dramatic site. There are some rather steep steps leading to the entrance. Once inside, you find yourself within a large dome-shaped chamber with sunlight streaming through two holes in the ceiling. We did see one or two bats that were in the deeper area...More

This cave is about a 5 minute drive away from the Fontein Cave. Although the Fontein Cave has many drawings from the Arawak Indians, I found this cave to be more exciting as you can go in further. This cave did not have any park...More

Very small cave that you can walk through in minimally supportive shoes. It's pretty, and I consider it to be a must-see.

We did a combination of seeing the park on our own and part tour. The caves are accessible to drive to in a regular rental car and they are only about 15 minutes apart. We did not see anyone hiking to the caves. Everyone... More

Hello! Not sure about motorcycle, we rented a car. Some of the roads are... dirt roads. But taxi should be able to take you there. :)

I had rented a 4x4 but saw many people arriving by car. you can get to the cave by car as long as you stay on the designated route, and drive with caution along the way.
