We did the Green Grotto Caves with Lunch from Chukka tours as an excursion from the Disney Fantasy in June. First I must say I thought the Disney end of the tour was less than organized but once we finally got off the ship the tour was well run. The caves are about 45 minutes from the cruise terminal -...

We've visited caves around and I can't say this was one of the best caves we've been to, but it was certainly interesting. These caves were frequented by run away slaves and run away government officials as well. On future trips to Jamaica, I wouldn't spend the money on transport and entrance fees solely to visit these caves, but it's... More

Nice little cave. Fun to spend a part of your day there, but a bit expensive for the time it lasts (20$ for about 1h / 45 minutes). The guide was great and he took time to explain a lot of interesting facts to us.

Lots of history to know here. The guide was very helpful. We happened to be the first ones there so we had a private tour. Lucky us. Caves are neat, but not as cool (temp) as I thought they might be. Learned about stalagmite and stalactite - who knew rocks grow?? If you re lucky enough to have them turn... More

A truly amazing part of the Jamaican history!!. The rock formations are incredible. The tour guide was really wonderful. Its worth the money and it takes maybe about 45 minutes. Its right off the road in Runaway Bay, We went on a day when there were no cruise ship visitors as those days it can be crowded. Our tour guide... More

This short and inexpensive tour gives a good history of the Island and how Runaway Bay got it's name, as well as shows off some very remarkable geological features.... great for all ages! My husband and I really enjoyed it and it was very professionally run and very safe!

Green Grotto Caves is really easy to access when staying in Run Away Bay - no excursion needed, we just jumped in a taxi from out hotel and took ourselves. Entrance, guide and helmet cost $20 and the tour lasted around one hour. The guide was very informative and a lot of fun. Well worth a visit! Don't worry about... More

Families with older kids will like this attraction. Tour guide had good sense of humor and the history behind the caves is cool. There's a snake, but when we got there I think she just wanted a nap. The underground pond/pool is beautiful, wanted to swim in it but that's not allowed.
