The caves are very cool!

We stopped here on the way to Dunn River falls and were very surprised how nice they were. The guide did a really good job and we got a free punch at the end of the tour!

Super cool, loved the history and the beauty. One of the less expensive excursions, but so worth it.

We chose the green grotto caves & Dunn river falls excursion on the cruise ship. The caves were a very cool excursion, our guide was great, learned a lot about the history of the island and the caves. Make sure you wear appropriate shoes, there is a fair bit of walking and climbing very narrow stairs up & down. Would... More

It was interesting but a bit pricey at $20 per person but it was government run so I felt better about giving the $20 pp hoping it goes to taking care of the property. Took about 45 minutes for the tour. Guide was very knowledgable.

The caves took about 45 min - 1 hour to visit. You don't need more than 30 min more to buy tickets/go to the restroom/visit the gift shop etc. The guide was sweet, polite and funny, he comes with your ticket. The location listed on their website is incorrect. The Green Grotto caves are in Runaway Bay, not in Ocho... More

Amazing natural wonder and great historical guided tour. Worth the time and money. The tour guide was as entertaining as the caves themselves. Some parts of the tour may be strenuous if you have mobility problems.

I had a wonderful time when I visited the Green Grotto Caves with my family. The entrance fee was $20USD per person, which was a little high for Jamaica but let me say- Worth it! The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. They were so patient- they put up nicely with my joker family!! (especially this young lady who greeted... More

This was our second choice of activity after torrential downpours prevented us from getting to the Blue Hole. If you've never seen caves before, they are worth seeing. However, there isn't that much that is too distinctive about them as compared to other caves. There are a lot of biting insects - we are still itchy almost a week later.... More

We toured the caves in Ochos Rios as a shore excursion on our cruise. It was much better than expected. Our guide, Cheed, was amazing. Funny and very knowledgeable. Taught us a lot about caves and the history of the cave and some history of Jamaica. Kids loved it. Lots of stair climbing and bats.
