Hato Caves

Just north of Willemstad, this 4,900-square-meter (52,700-square-foot) underground grotto was formed during the Ice Age and once sheltered indigenous islanders who created the petroglyph drawings on its walls. The various chambers of the caves contain spectacular limestone formations (stalactites and stalagmites), waterfalls and crystal-clear pools. They’re also home to a colony of the elusive long-nosed fruit bat and a former hiding spot for runaway slaves from nearby plantations.
