The Green Grotto is located on the North Coast between the Montego Bay and Ocho Rios Resort area. Green Grotto Cave is 1,525 metres long and 12 metres deep and is characterised by numerous chambers and light holes and a subterranean lake  the Grotto Lake  occupies its bowels. The cave is rich in history and can be identified with different groups of people. The first Jamaicans, the Arawak Indians (Tainos) found shelter in the caves initially. Proof of this is evident in the multiple fragments of pottery and adzes that are unearthed from time to time. During the period of take-over by the English, the caves were used as a hideout for the Spaniards who were being driven out of the country. 

The caves can also be identified with that period between the two world wars where they were used by smugglers running arms to Cuba. In the latter years during the Second World War, the Government of Jamaica used the entrance of the cave as a storeroom for rum in barrels. In the 1960's Green Grotto Caves fell into the possession of the Kirkner family. Today, they are owned by the Urban Development Corporation and operated by the St Ann Development Company and the attraction is being developed to include a nature park and reserve. The Green Grotto Tour is a popular tour for both locals and visitors and is a must see.
