Owner description: Tainopark is the biggest historic park in the Caribean. A huge reproduction of the Tainos's life and the confrontation with the spanish conquerors. An incredible scenographia with figures in Fiber glass at the real scale. A trip in the past of more one hour. You seems to be in a movie of these time. Culture and attraction for a unique concept of thematic park.The Tour is one hour and 6 language are available with audio guide (Eng, Span, Ital, French, Germ, Russian)

Self-guided tour with an iPod shuffle to listen to as we went from tableu to tableu. It's a detailed depiction of the life of the early Taino indians and what happened to them after their island was discovered by Columbus. Some of the tableus are not for the faint of heart. Obviously a labor of love constructed by the owners who we met while we were there. It is open-air and there are benches and places to sit along the way along with a nice open-air cafe at the end where you can get a snack, a beer or a soda. Recommend!

Visited as a land tour from Regent Seven Seas cruise. If there is a fee, it was covered by the cruise line. Series of life-size exhibits depicting the history of the island of Hispanola from the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1492 on into independence from Spain.
Very well done but the visitor might wonder at the amount of detail concerning the earliest
days depicted, when the visitor is told all of the early inhabitants were deceased within a short span of years.

Taino Park is like visiting the best exhibits at the Smithsonian Museum. The audio is pacesd well and gives the visitor plenty of time to appreciate each part of this exhibit on the history and tragedy of the Taino people. Each part of the exhibit is artistic, accurate, and well-designed. Each "person" is uniquely made,each with different features and costume. After the exhibit, there is a wonderful gift shop as well as a very pleasant cafe to enjoy a drink and snack by the waterfall. Taino Park is a "must see" on a trip to the Dominican.

The life-like figures of the Taino people are beautifully done and the accompanying audio is excellent. This excursion was provided by our cruise line, Regent, and was our favorite.

Loved the multi-lingual headsets and the mannequins. The stops on the tour were well staged and professionally done.
