These caves have been used throughout history as a place of hiding/refuge for various people. The slaves used to hide there and escape via Runaway Bay (that is where it got it's name) as well as one of the colonial rulers. At one point, it was used as a nightclub but the drunks kept running into the stalagtites and stalagmites... More

We arrive at the caves only to be told that my passport is not a valid i.d. to enter! What?. This is unbelievable to me that my passport is not a valid i.d. i was refused entry.

This was the second part of an excursion we took through our cruise ship (first stop Dunn's River Falls) and we are glad we selected the one that included the caves. Very good guide, relatively easy walking into the caves. After climbing the falls there were some steps in one portion of the caves that were a little tough but... More

Visiting the Green Grotto Caves was the most fascinating experience, the beauty of the caves was breathtaking, as I've never been inside a cave in my life. The guide was fantastic and brought so much to the tour. I would recommend it to everyone, young, seniors, etc. It was an experience I will never forget.....

This was a cruise excursion we booked for our family of five. The trip out to the caves was on a bus, the tour guide gave lots of information along the way and tried to get some enthusiasm from the participants- we weren't a very loud bunch. When we got into the caves, our kids (11,9 and 7) thought the... More

The caves was amazing. Cool lighting to highlight the structure. Our guide was knowledgeable and had humor. Scared the other tours and told us cool stories. I highly recommend this if you are on a cruise in the Caribbean.

I visited with my 13 year old daughter and she loved it. Boys would go wild as this is right up their alley- bats, rugged ambience, etc. This is also a great science experience for kids of all ages. Guides are very knowledgeable and pleasant. Nice change of pace between beach outings. Great workout for the thighs! Very environmentally friendly... More

The caves are nice, but not exquisite. What sets it apart is the great information the guides give. Chedd was awesome and gave us a nice overview of Jamaican history, natural history and wonderful info on bats and cave ecosystems. His jokes and impressions were the best. Green Grotto takes credit cards, which is rare at so many Jamaican attractions.... More

These are cool caves. It took a little over an hour to go through all of them, and that was plenty of time to be down there. The bats were amazing to see, and the tour guide worked hard to entertain everyone. Overall, it is a good way to spend an hour or so.
