Nice add on to Dunn falls

We did this as part of excursion to Dunn Falls. It was interesting. Personally I think I would have preferred to combine the falls with a couple hours at the beach

The tour guide (Tafari) was very knowledgeable of the caves, and also added a comedic twist to the excursion. It made the experience much more memorable. Also nice to learn that the caves were once used by runaway slaves as a hideout. A bit humid in the caves and some stairs, but nothing that the average person couldn't handle. Overall... More

On our recent trip to Jamaica, we decided to visit the caves to cool off. Boy were we mistaken! These caves are definitely not cool! The history of the caves are though! Although we sweat profusely, we enjoyed our very informative tour and the interesting formations.

Easy access to most of the cave system, one section to a large pool was a number of steps but that was the only part that was any effort. Conbination of great cave and funny guide made it enjoyable for the whole family

Visited three caves so far. One was in San Antonio, the other one was in Nerja. This cave is probably my least favourite. I think the highlight was the guide. He was quite funny. Just a word of caution, the cave lighting was poor.

Very friendly staff. Great insight into the slavery history of Jamaica. Safety hats provided. This is not an all day attraction it only lasts around an hour.

Our tour guide was phenomenal. He was bright, funny, professional, and intelligent. This was an amazing experience. We learned about the slaves, Spaniards and Pirates. We received an amazing history lesson. This tour is for all ages. We booked the tour on Viator in conjunction with Dunns River Falls for $50 each.

Gorgeous caves, wonderful atomsphere, knowledgeable and friendly guides. If you are looking for the Live And Let Die location, it's not in the cave with the underground lake, but in the large cave area at the beginning of the tour. Reenact your own Roger and Jane run!

Did not expect this type of cave. A less than 60 min visit with a guide through the caves provided a glimpse of Jamaican history. worth the visit. Bit cool inside and ideal for kids to learn about caves.
