Many Caribbean islands have caves, but Harrison’s Cave in Barbados is exceptionally large and has all the elements of the world’s most famous caves.
Stalactites hang from the ceilings, stalagmites rise up from the ground. You’ll see emerald pools, underground waterfalls, water running amid crystal formations, quirky rock
