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 stopped by here on our way to the airport. We were the only group in attendance and hence had the tour guide to ourselves. It was interesting to learn about how the Kalinago people moved across the islands in the Carribbean and learn about...More

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
