Visiting these caves is worth doing to know about the geological formation of the island and à bit of its history. But buses that take you there are not frequent even during the week. The visit is guided, costs 9$ and lasts 0h45 mn

Great place to visit. Book in advance as it avoids disappointment and waiting times. Be warned, it’s a very steep narrow ( slippery when wet) stoned steps to the caves. Great tour guides. I simply loved it.

The tour guide was well informed and funny. The tour lasted 45 minutes but didn't feel like but we checked, it was. As you go down into the caves it feels like time stood still.

I you have a few minutes to fill in and it is on your way it is a good place to stop for and hour or so. Somewhat informative, good story about the plantation. If you do not go, you are not missing anything great.

We had a graet time here and the guide had to teach in two different languages. He did a great job and it was a very interesting trip.

We enjoyed learning about the history of the cave and how it was formed. Also enjoyed seeing the various formation. The Indian Trail was also interesting since we arrived right after a tour had already left, so we had 50 mins to keep busy. The...More

We went on this tour from our cruise ship and we loved it! Interesting facts the only disappointing thing is in the most interesting caves you're not allowed to take pictures but still a great place to visit.

If you have seen caves in your life,this one is nothing special. You can spend a more fun day at siete boca or ostrich farm.

This is a fairly small cave system if you have been to others but the tour guides are very good and the history is interesting. There are darling 3 inch bats in some of the rooms - so tiny! Just outside the caves is the...More

Sorry I did not do the caves on a combined beach tour, I did the cave on my own. I have been to many of the beaches on Curacao and the most popular ones all rent beach chairs so if you are on a tour my guess is there will... More

Far to expensive. Just pay at the location itself. About $10-12. Enjoy. Definitely worth seeing
