Dominican Republic: A land of eternal Spring

The World of the Tainos, one of the minors aboriginals groups of Latin America, flourished in Dominican Republic. The arrival of the Spanish brought new ways to “Quisqueya”. Mixed and merged with those of  aboriginal  descendants of the Taino and verbally handed down from father to son over generations, they have formed the idiosyncrasies which are such a charming facet of  earlier dominican habitants. So strong is the legendary spirit in Taino that its Dominican writers and poets made it world reknowned.

Constanza, located in almost in the centre of the island is a contrasting landscape, varied ecology, and the confluence of three cultures–Aboriginals, spanish, african and modern-day– entice visitors to Jarabacoa.(travel destination)
