Taíno Caves in the Dominican Republic

Definitely visit this site; it offers much information and many great photographs. My Only complaint is that the photos are a bit small in size, and sometimes indistinct; nevertheless, they are fascinating. Download them and make them larger to enjoy the craftsmanship that the Taínos employed. This is just a sample of what is on this site.
