La Laguna del Tesoro (Treasure Lagoon)

La Laguna del Tesoro (Treasure Lagoon) Review

La Laguna del Tesoro is where, according to legend, Taíno aboriginals dumped gold and other loot to hide it from the Spanish. No treasure has been found, although Taíno relics have been recovered from the lake and contributed to the Museo Guamá, a replica of a Taíno village. It also has figures—created by the famous Cuban sculptor Rita Longa—of Taínos going about their daily business.
