Central Region Travel and City Guide

Stretching from the west to the east of the island, Puerto Rico’s Cordillera Central Mountains are a spectacular backdrop for many of the country’s delightful cities and towns. Cerro de Punta, located in the range, is the highest point in Puerto Rico and very popular with hikers. The climate is somewhat cooler here and provides reprieve from the heat of the coast.

The Central region of Puerto Rico boasts a number of exciting destinations. Amongst these is the town of Corozal. Founded in 1795, Corozal is filled with history and fascinating attractions. Also in the region is Aguas Buenas, known for its sparkling spring waters.

History buffs will enjoy a visit to Lares, which is also host to a number of thrilling festivals. Definitely not to be forgotten is Utuado, home to attractions such as the Caguana Indian Ceremonial Park, Iglesia San Miguel Arcangel, Lago Dos Bocas, the Monumento a los Soldados Utuadenos and much more.
