When you are in the center of Puerto Rico on Jayuya is a great place to see the story of the Tainos. Good for education. Very clean in the middle of mountains.

A unique place! It is a museum with ancient and taino artifacts. It is located in Jayuya, P.R. next to Blanca Canales House (another museum).

Easy parking, educational, $1 donation per person?!?! Wonderful! Enjoy the view of the mountains outside, and visit the neighbor museum house "Casa Canales". Very hot in the summer I was told!

A very nice place for historic learning. Do not go at noon. They close for one hour for lunch. Is .50¢ if you are under 11 years, and $1.00 adults. The tour can be done between 30 minute if you read what is inside.

Cheap, Only $1 the admission. It need some interactive activities like a movie or a dramatizations of the taino culture.

It's approximately 1:30 min from the SJU Airport area and you can see it in 1 hr (park and small museum) plus 30 min video. It's definitely worth visiting, but I recommend you also visit another attraction like Cueva Ventana, eat late lunch in Lago...More
