Taíno Park Review

This unique park tells the story of a lost civilization. The Taíno Indians, the indigenous people of this island, were the inhabitants here some 1,500 years ago...that is, until Christopher Columbus discovered it. And then came the inevitable clash between the Spanish colonials and these peaceful natives. The major exhibits comprise 25 animated scenes with life-size figures depicting the life of the Taínos and their conflict with the Spanish conquistadors. Their costumes came from the best movie-company makers in Europe. The museum has an archaeological exhibition of more than 200 pieces—bone, clay, stone, and wood. If it's raining, the tour is fully roofed. Plan on at least one hour with a personal audio guide (available in five languages).
