Cave paintings, stalactites and stalagmites are a feature of Curacao’s limestone Hano Caves. The indigenous Arawaks used the caves for shelter, and runaway slaves hid here in the colonial days.
These days Curacao’s long-nose fruit bats call the cave home, and dramatic lighting illuminates the cave’s waterfalls, pools and Madonna statue.
Guided tours departing on the hour point out the 1,500-year-old cave paintings and share some of the legends and history of this mysterious underground world.

Doing what: Curacao Shore Excursion: Ostrich Farm and Hato Caves Adventure
We enjoyed the variety of this trip and the guide was friendly and gave us good local information, only downside of booking this via viator if on a cruise is you need to take a taxi from tbe port to the pick up point at your expense which makes it more expensive than if booked via the cruise company
The Hano Caves are 15 minutes north of Willemstad near the Curacao International Airport, off Roosevelt Weg which runs south to the capital.
