My husband and I visited these caves while in Jamaica. The guide was well informed, and very entertaining. We had a great visit and also enjoyed the coolness of the cave since it was pretty warm outside!! ;-) Very interesting to see the former nightclub but was glad to hear they realized it was damaging to the structure. Im not... More

We were staying across the street at Gran Bahia Principe and drove over one morning when it was raining. The guides were knowledgable and entertaining, but I'm glad the tour didn't go longer than an hour. I'm not a big cave enthusiast but it was pretty cool to see the old night club and the lake. The entry fee is... More

A nice tour for those who like natural wonders. Our tour guide Jermaine was very good; he made sure all the guests enjoying the walk within the limestone cave. It was just about an hour walk within the cave, suitable for people from all walk of life. It fits those tourists like us who have a very limited time in... More

This was a lovely diversion through the caves with an entertaining host who earned his tip. I would highly recommend a stop here.

Nice tour, great to get out of the car and hike, learn and see the caves. Tour guide was average, could have used his personality more and read less from the script he memorized. I would recommend this tour.

The advertisement pictures made it look a whole lot nicer that it actually was. I will say our guide was very good though, he was very knowledgeable about the caves and did his best to make everyone have a fun time, as a matter of fact all of the employee's were great it was the attraction itself that was not...

Yes, we've all see much better caves in the US, but these have such an interesting history - with slaves, and pirates, and nightclubs. It was also neat to get up close to the wildlife. We saw two big snakes sitting on the edge of the path, and lots of bats. The tour seems to drag on a bit at... More

Maybe I'm just getting jaded. These caves are ok for an hour or so of exploration and the kids like it. It's all pretty much the same: a cave, but that's fun. There are bats and you wear a hard hat. They talked about snakes but we did not see any. The paths are easy to manoeuvre and the stairs,... More

It is a place easy to pass by, but worth the stop to learn the history and see the natural beauty of Jamaica

I am a frequent visitor to Jamaica and love the country. This was our first trip to the Green Grotto Caves and we wish we would have done it sooner. We learned so much about the early days of Pirates, slave trade and the wars between the Spanish and English. You will get up close and personal with bats but... More
