Know More about this tour

Green Grotto Caves:
After hotel pickup, head west along Jamaicas northern coast to Green Grotto Caves, about 20 miles (32 km) from Ocho rios. When you arrive, you have about one hour to explore the limestone caves, which get their name from the green algae that cover the walls.

See the caves stalagmites, stalactites and crystal-clear underground lake, and hear about their fascinating history, which includes being an escape route during the English invasion of the 1600s and a hiding place for barrels of rum during WWII. Watch for one of the several species of bats that live in the caves, and look for small marine life like barnacles.

When your time is up, head back to your tour vehicle for the drive to Dunns River Falls.

Dunns River Falls:
An approximate 25-minute drive back toward Ocho rios takes you to Dunns River Falls, one of Jamaicas most popular natural attractions, known for its lush setting and for its roles in the James Bond movie Dr. No and the Tom Cruise movie Cocktail. Often called a living phenomenon because its continuously rebuilt from calcium carbonate and sodium deposits in the river, Dunns River Falls is one of the only waterfalls in the world that empties directly into the sea.

When you arrive, you have an hour of free time to enjoy the falls however you wish. Just relax on the deck located near Dunn's River to admire the falls, go swimming in the natural pools at the bottom or, if youre up for a little adventure, climb up to the top of the 600-foot (180-meter) terraced falls. As you walk up the steps made by the naturally chiseled rocks, stop along the way to swim in one of the small lagoons that have formed on the different levels. When you reach the top, youll be rewarded with a nice view. (The rocks can be slippery, but there are guides along the way to help you.)

After your Dunn's river falls experience, return to Ocho rios for hotel drop-off.

    Great experience, unfortunately our guide was rushing us. Need to be really careful as I hurt myself a couple of times because of the rushed experience.

    The transporting company was very nice and prompt. Would not recommend the Green Grotto Caves. Nice and clean but would recommend time spent on another activity. Dunn's River Falls was amazing. More physical than I thought, but definitely a must when visiting the Island.

    This trip was amazing! I would highly recommend it to anyone! Our driver Johnson was awesome! He is a local and knew a lot about the area and therefore made the trip very informative. Dunn's falls was amazing! Climbing the falls was one of the coolest things I have ever done and the guides there were great - Quinn and Adrian!!! They were full of energy and made the climb a lot of fun. The Green Grotto caves was also interesting. I don't know if i would have done it unless it was part of this package- but it was cool.

    Great tour and the tour company was accommodating, friendly and informative. The caves were cool and climbing Dunn’s River was incredible. I wish the tour guides at Dunn’s River would do smaller tours vs such a large group of about 30 but overall, great tour!

    The Dunns river falls is an amazing experience, where you climb the falls about 960 feet through torrid rapid flowing currents, a must for the whole family. The green Grottos also had some historical significance more than its natural beauty as we have seen much bigger and better grottos in the world ! Although the guide Kenny was very informative and very friendly and jocular teaching us the jamaican dialect Patwa along the tour.

    A good day, the Falls climb was harder than I thought it would be , but the guides are great and we really enjoyed it. We could have stayed at the falls a bit longer. It seemed a bit rushed to get back.

    Great.

    The caves were ok, they were dry as opposed to others that have been dripping water. The guide made the visit worthwhile.
    The climb up the falls was good, the guides are excellent. However the DVD was a complete waste of money.

    What an adventure! We had to wait about an hour for our driver to pick us up and that's why I didn't give it a full 5. Plus he had to pick up 2 other guest to take them to the airport. But we were dropped off first and they were very friendly. The grotto is gorgeous. If you like to hike...this is for you. The tour guides were very funny and informative. A different driver came to pick us up and take us to Dunn's Falls. Mr. Pine was very friendly, kind, and wonderful to talk to. My husband asked all kinds of questions and he answered them all. The Falls are gorgeous and amazing to climb! We enjoyed having our driver, instead of being packed in a bus with other tourists!!

    The caves: A great option if you are looking to do something a little more off the beaten path. We arrived a bit past 9:00 and were the only group in the caves. Our guide, Chedd, was both funny and extremely informative. We learned a lot of interesting facts and history from him as we walked throughout the caves. The walk was very doable there was only one part where we had to descent about 60 steps and then walk back up. Be prepared to see bats and maybe some cave kitties but other than that, we did not encounter any cave creatures. The lagoon was definitely the highlight - I have never seen water that clear before! The whole walk took about an hour, although it went by fairly quick. The cave was beautiful!

    Now onto the falls: I feel like you can't go to Jamaica and not see Dunn's river falls. It truly is spectacular! Make sure to bring water shoes and a waterproof camera case for the climb - that's really all you will need. The climb is exciting and beautiful and fun all wrapped up into one. Our guides were excellent at helping us navigate. Although they try to sell you a video, they even volunteered to take photos of guests with their own cameras, which was great because I definitely wanted pictures but did not want to buy the video of our 15-person group. I truly had a great time. However, there were some downsides to the whole experience. First, it is incredibly crowded. We spent at least a half hour just standing around and waiting before being able to climb. Try to find a date where there isn't a cruise ship in town. Also, I did not like that they made you hold hands although I made a deal with the couple behind me and we decided to not hold hands after all. I like having both my arms available for balance and for grabbing onto things, and the hand-holding seemed a bit unnecessary. Finally, the shops you have to pass on the way out of the park are insane in terms of the pressure they put on you to buy things. I've been to Mexico, the Bahamas, downtown Ocho Rios, etc. and so I've experienced this type of shopping before and have no issues saying no to people, but they took pushiness to another level. My husband innocently made the mistake of telling one of them our names and he carved them into little wooden figurines that we then were pressured into buying. Not a good way to end the whole experience.

    We had to wait for our tour bus a long time after finishing up at Dunn's. When we got on, it was overcrowded with guests from another excursion. A minor annoyance, but felt as thought it was important to mention. This was the only time on an excursion we had issues with the travel.
