Day 47 of 365 Things to Do, See & Eat in Jamaica – Go Underground at Cave Valley

Cave Valley, Jamaica

The Cave Valley is located along the Cave River and is near a large interconnected system of limestone caves that run through the north and west parts of the island. The village located here has an historic district and is close to the Vera Ma Hollis Savannah, a major base of activity for the first Maroons, freed slaves of the Spanish Colonial period who fought guerrilla wars against the English. The valley was a stronghold for the Maroons during the war period, and the ruins of the English Cave Valley Regiment quarters can still be seen today. The livestock market in Cave Valley is famous for sales of donkeys, mules and horses, and is a meeting place for livestock traders. Of special note are the Noisy Water River Cave and the Rat Bat Hole, an opening in the ground that is the entry to a deep, miles-long undergound system in which thousands of bats live.
