Windsor Caves Jamaica
Written by Staff Writer

These caves shelter the largest bat population in Jamaica, as well as incredibly beautiful limestone rock formations. A visit to the caves requires walking through huge guano deposits, which may not be for everyone (!), but don’t miss the weekly “Dinner with the Biologists,” which feature a four-course meal and discussion seminar where you can find out about the latest scientific discoveries pertaining to the Cockpit Country’s biodiversity and conservation from scientists working at the Windsor Research Center. During the 1700s, the Windsor Estate was  a cattle farm owned and operated by John Tharp; the Great House was built in the 18th century and might have been used as a British military base because of its strategic location. An old trail from the house leads to the town of Troy in Manchester. You can get a real taste of the Cockpit Country here, a place known as a “life scientist’s paradise” because of the amazing diversity of plant and animal species to be found here.

In case you missed any of the past “365 Things to Do, See and Eat in Jamaica“, here they are all together.
