Taino Park

Some 1,500 years ago, the Taino Indians, the indigenous people of Dominican Republic, inhabited this tropical island. But arrival of the famed explorer Christopher Columbus sent locals into a tailspin and forced them to defend their land, their tribe and their traditions against colonizers. Today, 25 unique life-size figures stationed in Taino Park depict the peaceful life and bloody battle of the Taino people, with ornate costumes fashioned by European designers. Visitors can bear witness to their troubling past and explore their ancient culture and historic traditions.

Additional exhibits include bone fragments, clay pots and stone carvings excavated from the site. Travelers can explore the grounds alone, or spring for a personal audio guide, which is available in a number of languages, for more historical context.
