Lonely Planet review
Centro Cultural Angel R Ortiz is a small museum maintained by the Puerto Rican Institute of Culture. The building was once part of a network of 27 such huts that housed so-called ‘road keepers’ (in this case, convicts). The lodge stands on the old ‘pick and shovel’ road built by slaves of Spanish landowners and later maintained by black convicts over the centuries. In the last years of Spanish colonization, decadent criollo landowners of Aibonito used to boast that the government had killed all of the town’s people of African descent by forcing them to build the road. Phone ahead for reservations.
