Green Grotto Caves, Runaway Bay
(4.4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • What a great tour! Our guide was absolutely hilarious! Very informative, but with plenty of jokes. Everyone is very friendly. The caves themselves are very interesting too, and have great history to learn about. Great place to come explore.

  • Very exciting and educational. Gives vivid imagery of challenges faced by slaves in Jamaica as well as their brilliance.
  • This tour is totally worth it. The guides are well informed and well spoken. They are funny as hell will be recommending this tour to my friends and family. The total tour is about 45 minutes and involves some bit of stair climbing. The caves are a bit warm so be prepared to sweat a bit. Overall it's a great Jamaican experience.
  • There is a lot of history in this amazing place. The tour guide was fantastic. Money well spent.
