Fodor's Review

This limestone cavern, complete with stalactites, stalagmites, subterranean streams, and a 40-foot waterfall, is a rare find in the Caribbean—and one of Barbados's most popular attractions. Tours include a nine-minute video presentation and an hour-long underground journey through the cavern via electric tram. The visitor center has interactive displays, life-size models and sculptures, a souvenir shop, restaurant facilities, and elevator access to the tram for people

with disabilities. Tours fill up fast, so book a reservation.

Barbados' Natural Wonder

The cave was much bigger than I expected, and it has a number of beautiful mineral deposits. As the visit is by tram, it is not strenuous, perfect for a laid back island vacation. It's definitely a nice excursion.

Barbados' Land Down Under

In the central portion of the Island, Harrison Caves is truly an enjoyable sightseeing experience. Taken more than 100 feet down into the Cavern by what appear to be small jitney trains, the guides are extremely knowledgeable, and the caves are very impressive, equal to anthing I have seen in the US or Bermuda.
