    We arrived to visit but the place was closed. We were still on the site to see what was. It's better to go with someone who can read to understand... some improvised so we understand half. However on the other side of the street, site to see. Interesting.

    Opposite the Chorro de Maíta, just across the street, you access a reproduction of a typical Taino village, by a bar-parador which charge you an entry of 5 CUC per person. Remarkable is the quality of the wood used in the tables and chairs, and how these backup resembles a ritual mask. It follows a path that passes through an area of natural vegetation, which draws attention cotton plants that grow there to become real trees. Arriving at the village itself, entering one of the smaller huts, a family home in which, in a cuna-hamaca, a nino-muneco has placed planks of wood with the deformed skull, giving a pronunciation tilt to the front. In the central hut, larger, awaits you a dozen men and women, painted and dressed Taino (all loincloth). A sorcerer (who later will serve also bilingual guide) and his aides held a ritual of healing, and the whole group, a dance in which you can participate. You referred to forms of life, preparation and ingredients from their diet based on cassava, and musical instruments employing (maracas, sea shells, etc) in a corner there is a reproduction of their God, representing both sides of existence: the front, a lively face or mask live with offerings of fresh fruit; the back half, emaciated bones of a human face, stripped of anything, in clear and direct reference to death. You can, at any time, photographing or filming at will. It is suggested to leave gratuity.
