Trip Planner: Caribbean / Jamaica / Saint Ann Parish / Runaway Bay / Green Grotto Caves
Step into Green Grotto Caves, a series of naturally sculpted caves filled with interesting geological formations. Situated on Jamaica's northern coast, the caves gained their name from the green algae that covers their walls. You aren't the first to think the caves would make a good underground lair for a supervillain: they served as the location for Doctor Kananga's base in the 1973 James Bond film, "Live and Let Die." Atmospheric lighting accentuates the mystery and wonder of these subterranean treasure troves, and guided tours help you understand the natural processes leading to their formation.

Our next stop after Rose Hall was the Greet Grotto Caves. Truly spectacular. Our tour guide was entertaining and humorous. He was very knowledgeable about the caves and how the slaves used the caves to escape. We toured the caves and saw birds and bats. Our tour guide also showed us stone images and carvings that resembled people, places, and things. He showed us how the slaves communicated in the caves and how dark it was for them. I truly enjoy the caves and our tour guide. He was humorous.
Decided to go for a quick excursion as it was conveniently close to our resort. The family enjoyed the hike into the caves and the guide was very friendly and good with kids. Interior was stunning and offered good photo opportunities. Also, the bats were pretty cool. Not much else is in the immediate area though and the overall experience is about an hour long, so plan your day accordingly if you want to make it part of a larger plan to see more sights.
Fantastic cave tour experience. They have included the himan history while preserving the natural state of the cave. There are great formations and wild life in the cave to discover with your guide. Lots of information to take in on the surrounding ground while you await your tour. Clean restrooms as well. Great place for the whole family.
A most wonderful experience. Just go if you can. Our tour guide Dwayne was wonderful he enlightened the darkness of the caves. The knowledge he shared with us was remarkable we interacted so well. I remember visiting the caves when I was a child which is some 30 years ago. Thank you, thank you!!!!
The guide was very informative, friendly and interesting to listen to. I had contacted the site by email before going so we were in a tour of about 8 people in the afternoon. There's a good cafe opposite by the way for lunch.... In the morning the site had been visited by cruise ship tours and had been absolutely packed. Something to watch out for. Really enjoyed out visit
