“OK on a rainy day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This place was not really that interesting unless you like that kind of thing, we did on our way back fro the town of Banes. Great views from here though.

“Makes a nice trip.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We rented scooters and made a trip one afternoon. The musuem was so-so but it had fabulous views and was a good close up look at village life. There are 2 musuems across the street from one another - 2 pesos to see an archeological graveyard dig and 5 pesos to go into the main museum.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The museum was very interesting, from a historical point of view, and the native mock villiage was different from the norm... a little of a suprise.. go and find out!

“Fascinating history (followed by touristy theatricals!)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

The Arawakan Indian cemetry was excavated by archeologists about 3 or 4 years ago and helped to identify how the conquests by other countries (eg Spain) affected their lives and culture. The guide explained the meanings of artifacts found in the graves and how the way people were buried changed over time (eg as Christianity was introduced). We found this part of the tour very interesting and a valuable insight into pre-Hispanic Cuba. The replica village shows how the archeologists believe the Indians lived in the area (although the bit of theatre that is laid on for fun in the village made us both cringe!).
