A journey into underworld charm… a speleologists dream, a green cavern of mystery and adventure, a slice of Jamaica’s history… part of your vacation with a difference… such are the accolades that can be ascribed to the largely unexplored labyrinth of mystical underground caverns called Green Grotto Caves
Known at various times as the Runaway Bay Caves, Cave Hall Caves, Discovery Bay Caves, Dry Harbour Caves, Hopewell Caves, Rum Caves, and Dairy Caves, Green Grotto is among Jamaica’s most prominent natural attractions and is the first natural attraction in Jamaica and worldwide to receive Green Globe 21 Certification.
This is a must-do on any shortlist of cultural and historic sites in Jamaica for the entire family. Green Grotto Caves were once used as a sanctuary for runaway slaves, a hideout and escape route for Spanish soldiers trying to escape capture from the English, and a night club, until it was deemed a National Landmark and became a guided part of our heritage. The tour also provides an insight into the animal life in and around the caves.
