Green Grotto Caves, Runaway Bay

(480+ reviews on the web)
Cave Nature / Park
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.

  • Good experience especially visiting a historical and cultural piece of our heritage. The tour guide was entertaining, even to the children... Recommended!
  • Tour guides are entertaining, informed and successfully engaged both young and old.
  • Worth visiting on your trip to Jamaica. Try to get Chad as your guide if possible. Caves aren't that cool so dress lightly. Not very strenuous so you don't need to be fit to enjoy. Some of the signs are a bit obtrusive and make photography a pain but it can be worked around.
  • This is a wonderful tour if you like history because this focuses mostly on the history of Jamaica. Be prepared to walk up and down a good amount of stairs. I find this location to be very informative
  • Great place for taking your young kids. You learn a little history and see a little of Jamaica's beauty
