Green Grotto Caves Discovery

Journey into a green cavern of mystery and adventure, and discover a slice of Jamaica's past. Known by several names that describe the cave's use over the years, Green Grotto Caves is a large labyrinth cave system with a rich cultural history. Measuring 1,525 meters in length and 12 meters in depth, the caves are the island's most prominent natural attraction.

From the pier, your guide will take you on an approximately 1 hour scenic drive. Your adventure begins as you make your way through thick vegetation to the mouth of the caves. Descend below ground and be greeted by impressive stalactites, stalagmites, and other unique limestone formations. The ceiling pockets are home to several species of Jamaica's bats, including the Mustache and Jamaican fruit-eating bat. This extensive cave system also boasts a river and Grotto Lake, a crystal clear underground body of water.

Learn of the caves' rich cultural history, starting with the Arawak Indians, whose pottery shards are still unearthed periodically. Learn how the caves were used as a hideout by 17th century Spaniards during the English invasion of Jamaica, and then to smuggle arms to Cuba in the 20th century. At one point the caves were used by runaway slaves, as well as a storage place for rum barrels by the government during the Second World War. If the caves feel familiar to you, it might be because they were also filmed for a scene in the James Bond movie Live and Let Die.
