More Ideas in Jamaica: Green Grotto Caves
A trip to explore the Green Grotto Caves in Jamaica is an adventure into the charm of a mysterious underground cavern. The green cavern of adventure and mystery is a dream of any speleologist, a part of the history of the island of Jamaica, and a unique experience for a different kind of Caribbean vacation. These are just some of the ways to describe the Green Grotto Caves, the widely unexplored maze of mysterious underground caverns.
The pristine waters of the Green Grotto Caves are supplied by the cavern’s secret depths. These underground caves are surrounded by lush vegetation as well. Such solace and privacy can be found inside the mystical underground caverns, that history is often associated with a variety of groups of inhabitants of the area. The first inhabitants of the caves, the Arawak Indians, used these caverns for a number of different purposes. Proof of these people using the Green Grotto Caves is evident through the numerous fragments of artifacts and pottery that has been uncovered in the underground caverns over the years.
In the seventeenth century, invaders from England arrived on the Caribbean isle of Jamaica. The Spaniards used the Green Grotto Caves as a place to hide from the invaders who were trying to drive them out of Jamaica. During the middle of the twentieth century, during the time between World War I and World War II, smugglers used the undergrounds caverns to run arms to the island of Cuba. During the latter years of World War II, the country of Jamaica’s government used the entrance to the caves as a storeroom for barrels of rum.
The Green Grotto Caves is one of the most prominent natural attractions in Jamaica. The mystical underground caverns have been known at different points in history as the Cave Hall Caves, Rum Caves, Runaway Bay Caves, Discovery Bay Caves, Dairy Caves, Hopewell Caves, and Dry Harbour Caves. The government of the country has recognized the caves’ unlimited potential over time, and has place the caverns into the ownerships as well as operation of the Urban Development Corporation and then the St. Ann Development Company. Since then, the mysterious caves have become a world-class attraction drawing in visitors from throughout the world.
Located on 25.9 hectares along the stunning North Coast of the island of Jamaica, the Green Grotto Caves are situated between the two resort areas of Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. The underground caverns are located to the east approximately four kilometers away from Runaway Bay, and two the west about 3.2 kilometers away from Discovery Bay. The feature at the heart of this mysterious natural attraction is its massive labyrinth-like limestone cave. This large underground cave features numerous overhead ceiling pockets, stalagmites, stalactites, bats, and unique rock formations. The Green Grotto is about twelve meters in depth and approximately 1,525 meters in total length. The cave is characterized by a multitude of light holes and chambers, as well as the Grotto Lake, a subterranean lake, that occupies the bowels of the cavern.

More Ideas in Jamaica: Dunn’s River Falls
Dunn’s River Falls is one of the national treasures of the country of Jamaica. The site is as well known throughout the world as reggae, and is just as stimulating. There are only a handful of places where the name “Xayamaca,” the Arawak name for “land of rivers and springs,” is more suitable. The Spaniard called this area of the island “Las Chorreras,” the springs or waterfalls. Dunn’s River Falls is one of the island’s most beautiful sites.
Located just a short distance away from Jamaica’s quickly growing resort center of Ocho Rios, Dunn’s River Falls is truly unique. The site is described as not just a living, but also a growing phenomenon. The spot regenerates itself continuously with deposits of travertine rock, which results from the precipitation of calcium carbonate from the river, as it flows over the falls. The dome-shaped, small cataracts are typically associated with the activity of thermal springs found inside limestone caves. In combination with the location near the sea, this provides Dunn’s River Falls with a distinction of being the only falls of its kind found in the region of the Caribbean, if not the only one like it in the world.
The Dunn’s River Falls Park is a great place for visitors of all ages to relax and fun as they explore an area that features new discoveries around each corner. Visitors can enjoy a thrilling experience of climbing the falls as part of a human chain that’s led by an experienced Falls Guide. For those not feeling brave enough to climb the falls, they can watch those who are from a “safe” vantage point on the deck or terrace. For a more laid back experience, guests can take a break at the site’s “massage parlor” to enjoy the water’s soothing effects as it cascades down to the sea. Lovers of sunshine can relax at the beach and enjoy the rays, resting on the golden sands that are lapped by the Caribbean Sea’s aquamarine waters.
Visitors who love to exercise can walk through the property or take a job on the site’s beach as part of their visit or regular routine. Nature lovers can choose to lose themselves in exploring the tropical lush foliage around Dunn’s River Falls, including breadfruit trees, varios palms, orchids, crotons, ginger lilies, bamboos, and ferns. Visitors who love to hunt for great souvenirs from the places they visit will love browsing through shops at the site’s craft park, where they can intuitive art, straw crafts, and wood carvings. Guests can even commission their own piece of art, climb the Dunn’s River Falls, and then collect their souvenir on their return.
The Cafe at Dunn’s River Falls serves a variety of delightful savory dishes, such as spicy jerked pork, fish, or chicken, curried goat, and various delectable snacks. Visitors can also choose to bring their own picnic lunch and use one of the many barbecue pits that can be found throughout the park. Dunn’s River Falls Park provides the perfect opportunity for renewal.
