Arikok Guadirikiri cave

The Aruban Guadirikiri (Quadirikiri) Cave is located in Arikok and is notable for its two large dome-shaped chambers which are illuminated with sunlight through holes in the ceiling. The Huliba cave or so called Tunnel of love is also in this cave, but it is closed for protection of the bats.

The Huliba cave got the nick name because of a folk tale. It relates to a daughter of an Indian chief who fell in love and was imprisoned in the cave as her paramour was not acceptable to her father. Her beloved one was imprisoned nearby, in Huliba Cave, but both lovers managed to meet underground. Both died in the cave and their spirit vanished into heaven through the holes in the roof of the cave.
