Museo Arqueológico 'La Cueva del Paraíso' information
Baracoa's most impressive museum is exhibited in a series of caves, Las Cuevas del Paraíso, that were once Taíno burial chambers. Among nearly 2000 authentic Taíno pieces are unearthed skeletons, ceramics, 3000-year-old petroglyphs and a replica of the Ídolo de Tabaco, a sculpture found in Maisí in 1903 and considered to be one of the most important Taíno finds in the Caribbean.
One of the staff will enthusiastically show you around. The museum is 800m southeast of Hotel El Castillo.
