One of things I learnt in Jamaica is to check with the locals instead of relying on technology. After a lazy day in Port Antonio during Christmas and Boxing Day, when most places (including natural wonders) are closed, we decided to venture out to the caves using our GPS.
After a 5min detour from A4, the roads became progressively dangerous. Both in condition and also the neighborhood. We decided to go ahead, until we reached a really narrow bridge where our car would probably have not made it. We were stopped by a local who told us that if we went any further, it would be a risk. We turned back and went to our room.
We found out later from our B&B owner that the place had been closed for over 8yrs because even the locals found the place to be unsafe to be kept open. Apparently the area near the caves are also not safe to drive or hang out. We are glad that we were safe, but it was quite an adventure we didn't want to have with small kids...
