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.

Worth the $20. This was an interactive guided tour and tour guide explains the history of this cave. Jamaica has many of these kind of caves all over the island.

Visited the Green Grotto caves in Runaway Bay, not Ocho Rios! Walked up from the Grand Bahia Principe, after a refreshing drink at the snack bar paid the $20 for the tour. I have to say, they are pretty damn good, the tour guide knows his stuff, the caves are really nice to look around and also to listen to... More

We traveled here with our driver Hewin Dale with Dwight Soares (booked via Excursions in Jamaica). Out admission was included. Our family was there first thing and we were assigned a guide (included but we tipped him). We really enjoyed the caves. They were much bigger than expected. There are two caves on site plus a wishing well. You can... More

Went to see these caves as an excursion on my Disney Cruise. They are amazing!!! Very informative about the history of Jamaica's existence. They require some walking and hiking and if you are claustrophobic or afraid of bats you may want to pass.

Make sure you use plenty of insect repellent as you'll be eaten alive. Hard work if you are infirm, Not recommended for older people or young children. If you like bats its the place to see them, excellent.

I've been to many caves before, so I wasn't sure whether I'd appreciate seeing more stalagtites and stalagmites. But the tourguides make this an entertaining journey, where you learn about the history of the area and the caves, witness bats both flying and sleeping, and explore the depths. Well worth a visit - expect a trip here to take 2... More

We visited the caves on November 7th and were given our own personal tour since we did not arrive with a tour group and no one else was waiting. The guide takes you to three different caves. The first is the Runaway Cave where slave runaways hid. Later, the Spanish also hid there as they were being pushed out by... More
