Taino Park is a surprisingly professional, first-class destination. Unlike historical accounts told from proud, patriotic standpoints, Taino Park includes the ugly reality of what happened to the native population after Europeans first arrived in the Caribbean. As one government-published guide states, "No judgment is passed;...More

We went there. No signed on the road. Found dirt road off the main road after asking several locals around there. Finally the last person told us that the park has been moved elsewhere. No info about where that was.

This was easily the most interesting place we visited in the DR. While listening to the history on ipods (which came in 5 different languages) while walking in the park from station to station we learned more than we had in the previous few years...More

Taino Park is apparently the biggest historical park in the Caribbean and is set in a sort of reconstructed Taino Indian village. You walk round the display of some 25 "scenes" depicting the story of these indigenous people's everyday life until the famous Christopher Columbus...More
