We weren't exactly sure what to expect a green cave? a wet cave? But it was neither. The tour guide made the excursion entertaining and fun. Lots of history. Be prepared to cover your hair with a hairnet and hard hat. In some areas the ceiling is low and you may get a bump on the head if you're not... More

If you go on your own ( not with a tour ) admission is $20 per person and $12 for children up to and including 12 years old. You can purchase snacks and there is a small gift shop. You will go as a group on a tour and hear the history of the caves which are not extremely hot... More

Great places for adults and kids not elderly. Lots of low caves and narrow passages. Great cave formations. Close in Runnaway Bay to hotels and the little jerk center across the street is good place for food. Drinks and bathrooms

My family and I visited the caves on August 5th. The staff was very warm and friendly and the facilities were well-maintained. Our tour guide, Jason, was very knowledgable and although he said history was not his favorite subject, it was hard to tell. We learned quite a bit not just about bats, but about the history of the caves.... More

The caves are authentic and a very different tour from anything else we have done. The total tour is about 3/4 of a mile and less than one hour and the guide takes you through two separate caves giving the historical use by the native Tainos, runaway slaves, the Spanish and the British during the days of slavery. The trek... More

These caves are massive! It was interesting to hear the history of the caves. Our tour guide through the caves was Chedd and he was so funny. He made our journey through the caves and history engaging.

Just 10 minutes away from the Grand Bahia, caves were no comparison to those back home in Southern Wisconsin due to only being protected since the early 2000s, but the tour guide was extremely entertaining in his descriptions of the history of the area so it was well worth it.

The green Grotto is where scenes from a James Bond movie where filmed. I didn't expect the beauty that lies ahead when I first went. The caves are enormous and will keep you occupied for hours you'll enjoy it. It's also something nice to do when it is a very hot day. We have lots of hot days in Jamaica
