“Excellent and interesting tour”
Reviewed 28 January 2014 via mobile

The caves were very good and our tour guide Dessy was very charming, funny and made the tour extremely interesting. He told us a lot about the history of the caves, taught us a about how they are formed and let us experience complete darkness for a few seconds.

“Beware the parking lot hustler!”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

Our guide was great and the cave was an attractive hole in the ground as all cave-tours are, but... when we got out to the parking lot, the parking lot attendant was really hustling for a dollar.

He starts by asking how you liked the tour, then talks about how he feels like a slave because he makes minimum wage (he actually said that!) and then he wants some money.

Our friends live here and so we asked them about it, they said the same thing happened to them too! We're leaving tonight so we didn't get the chance to contact the owner about this... but it spoiled our visit to the caves.

So don't talk to the parking lot guy, just drive away.

“Nices but I've been to better”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

If you have never been in any caves the Hato Caves are worth going to. Otherwise they do not match of to many in the US and Puerto Rico.

“Interesting cave and history”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

The caves were part of the cruise ship tour. Guide was informative and humorous as we walked through it. Warm and humid inside with plenty of steps and slopes, so if you have any physical restriction you want to pass on the tour as you walk up 50 steps to get to the cave entrance. A nice stop when visiting the island.
