At the dead center of the Jamaican island, about a three-hour drive from Negril and half that from Ocho Rios, lies the small community of Cave Valley. This is the "real" Jamaica, the inland where it's much more rare to see tourists; although, to be honest, there isn't really a lot of luxury here to entice them. Consider this a good thing.
Named after the Cave River that runs through it, the area has an attractive system of limestone caverns that can be accessed from the aptly named Rat Bat Hole or Noisy Water River Cave, both of which are quite approximate to the tiny settlement of Norwood. Exploring them will require some hiking, but hey, what are adventures for?
If you're planning on checking out the valley, consider employing the services of a trusted guide who knows the people and can better provide direction to local activities. Don't know where to start? Well, the included link isn't a bad jumping off point, or you could just stop in to a local community like Andersons Town.
