Mysterious Caves, Flamingos and Snorkel

You will feel like you have landed on a movie set as you visit Curacao's magical caves on this journey around the island!

Wind past stunning stalagmites, beautiful limestone creations, and more in the 200,000-year-old Hato Caves. Walk easily on a carved pathway while you keep an eye out for long-nose bats, a romantic wishing pool and a fantasy room filled with a secret stash of statues.

From there you will make your way to the salt flats to observe wild flamingos in their natural habitat. These exotic, beautiful birds love feasting on the brine in the lake and it is the shrimp they eat that gives flamingos their iconic pink coloring.

Continue to Paradise Beach, be given your snorkeling gear and make your way out to the reef snorkel trails to see a variety of marine life including colorful tropical fish. If snorkeling is not your thing you can relax on the beach with a cold drink or take to the water for a quick swim.

During this tour you will also visit a historical church and village and learn what life was like for this island's ancestors. Reserve your spot now for non-stop adventure in the caves, villages, and reefs of Curacao.

Enjoyed this tour
March 29, 2019
The flamingos were too far away to see. I was nervous to do the caves because of the bats. There are a lot of steps into the cave 50? but I have a cane and there was no problem. There is plenty of head room to walk thru the caves and the bats don’t bother you, they are high up in the top of the caves. The tour guide was great very enthusiastic. I am glad I went. The beach was okay, very crowded. The chairs were not included and you couldn’t put down a towel, too many lounges. It was not my favorite beach on Curaco, wall to wall people. We went to distillery which was okay. Tour guide was very informative!

What a great tour

We were treated so well we thought we were family. Every tour was well coordinated, including the city tour we received. Eduardo was very informative and took very good care of us. His knowledge of the island and the neighborhoods, made our visit to Curacao very enjoyable.

This is a great excursion, that gives you a little bit of land and beach. The cave is great to see, the flamingos are beautiful and the beach is amazing. We even stayed longer at the beach.

Best excursion!
January 10, 2018
Did this excursion while on the Carnival Vista cruise in December 2017. My boyfriend and I were beyond happy with the tour guide who was so knowledgeable on the island and local spots. He recommend a few extra stops that we really enjoyed like swimming with the sea turtles! He spend the entire day/night taking us around the island and really made us feel comfortable. I would absolutely recommend this!
