Falmouth Green Grotto Caves Excursion Reviews

Arrive at the caves, which are located just over 1.5 miles from the spot where Christopher Columbus landed in 1494. Take a walking tour through the series of interconnected passageways and chambers' light holes, stalactites and stalagmites.

It was a wonderful experience and the guide was outstanding the ONLY reason I don't rate it as "Excellent" is that, compared to our excursion at Dunn's River Falls later in the day, I think there are far more fun things to do in Falmouth, Jamaica. Still a lot of fun, though! Read Less

The cave was interesting to see, however it looks better in the pictures. Also, we spent over an hour waiting at the cave for our tour. We returned to the ship 90 minutes later than we were supposed to. It was a waste of time.

The Cave tour was nice but unfortunately it is a hot cave instead of being cool, so that was a little bit of a let down because it was so hot being July. But well worth seeing once for sure! The guide was wonderful as well!

Green Grotto Caves & Dunns River Falls WOW! That excursion was worth every dollar we paid for! Our friendly young guide entertained us about life in Jamaica for the half-hour transit to Green Grotto. The caves are vast : we spend almost an hour walking through it. Unlike most caves we’ve visited, temperature is the same as outside so no need to put on warn clothes. The guide was friendly, provided good information and was specially kind with kids, giving them “special task” through the tour. Next another half-hour of entertainment with our funny guide and we're at the falls. The motto is "no wet, no fun!". The setup is awesome, the water is just cool enough and the climbing is quite easy with the occasional help of the guide and the other climbers in the group. With numerous stops along the way in small pools or in order for the "videoman" to take pictures we arrived at the top of the falls not exhausted at all but refreshed by the water. A must do and even do it again! Read Less

Jamaica – We booked the Green Grotto caves and Dunns River Falls tour. Air Conditioned bus from dock to caves. Cave tour was interesting and laid back. Then bus to Dunns River Falls where we climbed the falls in the water with several hundred of our closest friends. We had a great time and everyone enjoyed. After the falls you do have to go through an area of shops and they are very persuasive, so be prepared. The dock is awesome at Jamaica as it was built as a joint venture between Royal Caribbean and Jamaica. They have shops, booths, restaurants (Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville and a good Jerk chicken place). The vendors are not pushy at all and you can enjoy. No problem man. Read Less

In Jamaica, we went to Green Grotto Caves and Dunn's River Falls. This was our favorite excursion. I would not travel around Jamaica on your own but with an excursion and in the port we felt safe. The port was nice and not crowded. On our excursion, our tour guides were great, especially at Green Grotto Caves. Our group had about 15-18 people. Our guide taught us a lot about the history of the caves and made the experience a lot of fun. We did not have kids with us, but there were some in the group and our guide incorporated the kids well! At the end of the caves, punch was provided. Read Less

The Falmouth Port area is small and very 'commercialized' but it was very well laid out and we enjoyed our time at Margaretville, collecting free items from the shops, and my favorite thing - getting a 10$ chair massage! highly recommended! There were no ship tours that went only to the Green Grotto Caves and we wanted to see that (plus it was age appropriate for our 4 and 8 year olds), so we reserved a tour with yardie tours. Our driver was prompt and payment was easy. We enjoyed seeing the island as we drove to the grotto. The caves themselves were really neat to see - and our cave tour guide (not our driver) was AWESOME - he made the experience very fun. We were put together with another party of 2, for a total of 6 of us on the tour which allowed us to really enjoy it without being crowded or uncomfortable. Our driver tried to add stops at a local restaurant that we didn't want and then a smaller souvenir store. We managed to skip the restaurant, but we were trapped into the store and needed to purchase something before leaving. I will be more specific next time that I don't want to do those things. The cave tour guide deserved 10 stars, but the driver was more of a 3 of 6... Read Less
