Well worth the trip! Great fun exploring the caves and learing the history. It was hard to imagine how scary it must have been for the runaway slaves to hide out there in the pitch dark. A must see when in Jamaica.

This is a must for your Jamaican visit. A quick but interesting tour that was fun and enjoyable. We were in a small group which allowed for better interaction with the guide and attention. A top place to visit.

A fun place to visit! I was lucky enough to get a private tour as we went in between cruise ship excursions. They give you a hard hat for safety, but it is not a strenuous trek (I did it in my flip flops). We spent about an hour exploring the caves with our guide and we saw bats, a... More

We toured the Green Grotto Caves as part of a Royal Caribbean excursion that also included the Dunns River Falls. We had a great time. Our tour guide was funny and informative. The tour is lengthly and does include steep stairs and narrow areas. Our kids, ages 11, 13 and 15 enjoyed it as well. Well worth the trip!

Attraction fee was i think $20 for adults but i am not certain. Our guide for the 3/4 mile tour was Mark , who was young funny informative and very good with... More

OK my spelling is bats but the caves aren't... If you don't like bats don't go! The bats will actually leave you alone unfortuantly - no swarms putting any displays for us oh no! We also saw a cobra but it was sleeping! Its a shame its not still a night club I know thats not the right thing to... More

We had a fantastic guide names Ched Asafah Brown. Knowledgable, enthusiastic and really funny! This was my second time to the grotto. First was in 1996..this time we went as a family. Kids will love it as it feels like being in Indiana Jones! There is an under ground lake and amazing stalagmites etc if you have an overcast day... More

This was such a nice tour. It was a work out! Not intense so don't panic :) Incidentally when my husband, our 10 month old at the time and I took the trip in June 2013. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and he was so engaging. Again we were alone with him. But seeing the dance floor where they... More
