Definitely worth a visit. A guide explains about the history of Dominican people and shows you around the land explaining how the tribes still live. There is an opportunity to buy local hand made crafts at very reasonable prices. Lovely opportunity to support the tribes.

We travelled to the Kalinagi Barana Auté recently and did the tour and watched the dance performance. Our guide was patient and well informed, though soft spoken and at times difficult to hear. Much of the historical presentation was not new to me, as I...More
