    Question Taino sites

    Saludos,

    Anyone know of any Taíno sites one can visit? I am really looking forward to seeing artifacts in museums, but was wondering if there were any cultural tourism going on. Real would be preferred, but recreated village or what not would be interesting too.

    Parque Nacional del Este was mentioned as having some cave art.

    My travel base is Santiago, and I won't have a car. Any travel method safe for adult female gringas works.

    Thanks,
    jabuti

    Their are many caves in the national Park Aniana Vargas which is just past Cotui and probably are the best in the country. See website

    Speaking of caves.....for anyone in Santo Domingo, there are amazing caves along Jose Contreras near Avenida Italia. Eons ago it was where the coastline was.

    Jose Contreras is a few blocks above Independencia. Heading south on Churchill, when you go down the steep hill, make a right turn on Jose Contreras and go down a mile or so, watching on the right. If coming off Anacoana on Via Italia, make a left on Jose Contreras and look UP on the left side.

    They have rough staircases for the hearty with better knees than I have, haha. I must have passed them thousands of times, I should have climbed up there 30 years ago when I could have!
