Ceremonial Taino Dance Presentation

During our visit to Manati Park, we watched a fascinating display put on by a group of Taino, the aboriginal people of the Domincan Republic.

The display was a combination of dance, singing and chanting, and also incorporated several traditional customs, such as burning of tobacco.

The presentation lasted about half an hour, and was very interesting to watch. Also set up around the stage area were several vendors, where you could purchase Taino art.

The Bus to Manati Park

If you decide to pay a visit to Manati Park, you can arrange it through the tour desk at your hotel. The larger resorts all have a Manati Park bus stop in the parking lot. The pick-up and drop-off times are listed on a sign, and you shouldn't have to wait more than half an hour or so for the next bus.

We found the bus ride to be as much fun as the park itself. As you can see, it is very colourful, and open with no windows. As you drive along, the driver will play wonderful Salsa and Soca music, the breeze is in your hair, and you will be bouncing down the road, without a care. Hey, you're away on vacation - live it up!!

Manati Park

A visit to Manati Park is a great day trip off the resort. Tours can be arranged through your hotel, but the larger resorts will have a Manati Park bus stop in the parking lot.

At Manati, you will find all kinds of animals, from Toucans to Flamingos, Iguanas to Crocodiles. It's very nicely laid out in a park-like setting, where you can wander around for hours. They also have a display of Taino artifacts (Taino are the aboriginal people of the Caribbean), as well as a ceremonial Taino dance presentation.

The Park is quite large, and is very well maintained. We were actually quite surprised at how clean everything was, from the animal pens to the restrooms.

My only concern with Manati was the dolphin tank. Unfortunately, they had 3 fullsize dolphins in a very small tank. They also offer swimming with the dolphins, which is very cruel, in my opinion. A couple of years ago, a child swimming with them was attacked by one. It may look idyllic, but put yourself in the dolphins flippers - would you want a bunch of humans clamouring all over you??
