Carambie Cave (John Forden) is a large, relatively dry, white limestone cave in Trelawny Parish, Jamaica. It is believed that it may have been used by Taíno people although no evidence of their presence has been found. It does contain historical graffiti dating back to 1821.
Carambie cave is home to a small roost of fruit bats as well a few other bat species. There are several species of invertebrates, mostly living on the limited bat guano deposits. These include some flies (mainly Neoditomyia farri) and some spiders.
The cave has three entrances: Light, Dark and Back .
