Don't waste your time at this pseudo zoo with some limestone caves full of plastic beads, skeletons and treasure chests. I wouldn't even give this attraction one star if I could have rated it a zero or minus one.

The Bodden Town Pirate Caves have been a family favorite for several years. We visited again this year and were sad to see what a desperate state they were in. The girl in the shop said that they were being renovated but she would let us in at a reduced rate if $5 each. We declined. I really hope they... More

Really pathetic, from what I have read, but the cave was never opened in past years when we stopped in - only a gift shop. Don't drive all the way here, drive all the way to North side and see the real caves: Crystal Caves. The easy hike along paths and fabulously opened and lit caverns are the best tour... More

Stopped on way to Starfish Point. Had an all fruit smoothie and coconut candy with ginger like you can get in Jamaica. Walked thru gardens, saw some different animals, went thru the pirates cave. Not a bad stop while driving around the island.

We stumbled upon the pirate caves and my son was very excited. It was a little boys dream to see a real pirate cave. It was set up with pirate booty laying on the ground with fake gold and skulls. You actually walk into the cave and it gets quite dark towards the back where the colony of bats live.... More

This place at one time, was pretty amazing. With a small zoo in the back, and the pirate cave. The cave had fun things you would expect to see in a pirate cave, with treasure chests, skulls, fake gold (live bats)! Yes, I know for a fact this place is now closed. But it is up for sell! Im just... More

Yes for all purposes this is closed. However, we went in 2013 and while in need of repair and attention, it does give an account of the history if not only the geography of Grand Cayman. Too bad, we would have gone again.

Stopped by for a visit and the place is not in business anymore. The office had a closed sign on the door, but I called the number and it is out of business.

Although where bad, I still visited pirate cave because I don't always believe them. It was worst the any review. 2 min walk for 10 CU, which showed animal with no food no water and no pleasure. And there is no real cave, it's a oaks from my point of view. I have nothing against zoo and animal in cage... More
