The Green Grotto caves sit between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. It is approximately a 45-minute drive from either destination.

If you are a cave lover and have been to other caves before, you will quickly realize that these are not the deepest, or most unique caves out there. However, it is not something you should miss. The tour took a little under an hour, which felt just right.

The tour is very interactive and the tour guide is excellent. He is knowledgeable on the history of the caves, not only their geography, but also their significance to the Taino people and Spanish explorers. He was also knowledgeable of the flora and fauna there and we even got to see some bats. There was an area where roots of a particular tree were hanging out from an opening and we were encouraged to attempt to climb the roots, as the Taino would have done centuries ago. It was very fun and in that sense, very unique.

The underground lake was mesmerizing and after the pictures we also spotted some fish and prawn that live there.

The tour is $20/person and there is a shop there where you can buy snacks and drinks pre- or post-tour.

We visited here during a birthday trip and tour guide was excellent!! Get tickets on site $20 USD, Exchange rate 140=$1 usd , also use private tour guides Damien 8763153789 or Martin 8768732204 both great and cheaper than hotel fees for transport to cave. Both close to cave location.

Came here with some Jamaican friends while we were staying at Paradise Cove in Runaway Bay. Really glad we visited. When we asked our greater what we will see on this tour she said “Rocks”. That turned out to be quite an understatement.

Chedd our guide was super-knowledgeable and professional. He explained the history of the caves from their creation through modern day. Really glad we had him as our guide.

This isn’t a touristy adventure park but it was inexpensive and a great way to spend an hour or two. We came away with a better understanding of the history of Jamaica and saw some beautiful scenery

Thank you very much. We visited on Saturday morning (7/ 30/2022)and we were very please with your staff and the tour personnel. Very valuable employees enhanced by Jamaican hospitality. The caves offered several points of interest. lots of old and new information on the tour, I would preferred groups no bigger than 10 or 12 people at the time.

Flawless visit.
Congratulations on being part of this place.

Went on this trip to the caves with my hubby and teenage daughter and I have to say I was quite disappointed. I’m not really sure what I was expecting but it was just a walk through a couple of caves. For $60 for the 3 of us I thought it was a bit steep!
