It was a great experience to see the area where Chris Columbus first landed. The native cuban performance was awesome. Recommended.

A tourist attraction that's a little contrived and will cost you $8 to enter and then tips for all the different guides, You'll need to come either by tour bus, taxi or hire car,

Entrance fee is 8 pesos per adult. There's no map of where everything is located so you have to go exploring. There's plaques and monuments commemorating anniversary of Columbus landing here in 1492. There's a restaurant on top of a hill, very nice inside. There's a Taino village and cross indicating where Columbus came ashore.

We had a stop at the monuments as part of the jeep tour. The scenery is breathtaking and the colours are so vibrant. The pillars are beautiful but the brown statues are kind of fake looking and other than that there really isn't much else there. I could easily see how Christopher Columbus said it was the most beautiful place... More
