The Yucayeke Museo Indígena is a first of its kind in the Dominican Republic–an ecotourism center, located on a farm in Macao, recreating life scenes in a model Taino village. Complete with “bohios,” or traditional thatch huts, there are displays of items used in everyday life tasks, dance performances, and food tastings. Get valuable insight on the country’s indigenous culture, history, and way of life in one place, while enjoying a day out in nature.
