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; this is history as it happened." Several of the 25 dioramas are quite graphic, such as the one of a Spaniard lancing a Taino clean through the chest. Each of the life-size, fiberglass sculptures is a work of art; the costumes are amazing. The bar / snack shop was just what we needed to refresh and recharge after the hour-long tour. I arrived thinking this would be just another cheesy, roadside attraction -- not at all! We were pleasantly surprised, quite impressed, actually. Well done!
