The Hato Caves exist for more than 200,000 years and are the most popular caves on Curaçao.

The Hato Caves have been officially a museum since 1991. The Curaçao government has restored the caves and made them accessible for visitors.

The caves must be on your Curaçao must-see list! Formerly the Hato Caves were inhabited by Arawak Indians and many years later they were used as slaves’ shelter.
