Create an itinerary including 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.

  • The entire tour took about 45 minutes, so not too long but not super short either.The guide did a great job with her story telling during the tour. Overall it was an average experience.

  • 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.
  • 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!!!!
