The cave is nice and an interesting place to know, I'm not sure how natural they are, but it worse. There's a restaurant and souvenirs shop. Pos available to pay the entrance ticket.

The Hato cave gives an insight of the geology of caves and tells the story about slaves hiding from their owners. The tour is short and safe. Suitable for kids.

Nice side trip ,it's above ground wit 49 steps with handrails to enter. Not a hard climb at all Once inside there are fans and lights which helps the heat in the cave.It is worth the 9 dollar fee

We loved the tour of the caves. The guide was very knowledgable. The whole thing takes less than an hour and is right across from the airport so if you have a later flight you can do it right before you go to the airport.

Most caves go underground and are cold, but not this unique cave. You climb up and it's hot. It's really neat to see this cave as it's unlike any seen before. The tour guide was amazing and spoke a multitude of languages without a flinch.

Like many other caves there are stalagmites and stalactites, green algea when the lights are frequently on. It is more than dark when the lights are off. Nothing special, oh yes in the old times slaves lived here, but unfortunately no more information is given,...More

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

I completely understand, I can be claustrophobic at times as well. I really enjoyed the caves and didn't feel claustrophobic inside at all until they switched the lights off. I'm sure you could ask them not to, but I didn't... More

Stairs are a bit narrow but not too difficult to climb. When I went with my wife, the group that came with us had a bunch of elderly people and they were able to all make it. The cave tour takes about 25 minutes from what I... More
