    Post The Caves of Hato

    Hato Caves are some of curacaos jewels. Over a million years old and they still are in amazing condition. The Hato Caves are known as the greatest of the whole Netherlands Antilles. These caves where formed over a million years ago when Curacao was still underwater. With the Ice Ages the water level dropped down and Curacao was born. In the past the caves where used by Indians and later by slaves as shelter. You can still find drawing on the cave walls from both Indians and slaves. The caves cover a area of 52.743,16 ft² and is the home to the beautiful limestone formations, romantic pools, waterfall and our famous Madonna with child statue, the statue is around 80cm high. The biggest chamber of the caves are more that 26 feet high. The lowest point of the caves is more then 72 feet.

    We just "discovered" Curacao, and this may not be the "correct" area to do it, but what is a MUST see/do when we get there?

    I have read that it reminds some people of St. Lucia, which I just love, so NOW I want to see it.

    We are looking for some good photo ops in Curacao. I'm sure the caves present some interesting photos and I'll check out the web site to see what you can and can not photograph. The ship will offer a tour to this site but we might investigate going on our own.
