It has about 40 resident edifications which show the character of the traditional unique village where some neighbors practice the sheep’s and goat’s livestock.

Tazo is one of the areas where the exploitation of the palm grove has taken place for the extraction of “guarapo” and “miel de palma”. This tree has always been present in its landscape; their inhabitants’ lives have always been linked to the palm tree.

It is a very beautiful celebration that takes place in the afternoon and many neighbors from nearly all the island meet in the square to listen to music and prepare barbecues or picnics.
