Welcome to Barranquitas & Around

Hurricanes and fires have repeatedly ravaged Barranquitas (the name translates to ‘Place of Little Mud Slides’): the oldest structures date only from the 20th century. The charm here is less in the history and more in the tightly packed narrow streets that tumble into deep valleys from the pretty plaza. Indeed, the view as you descend into town from the mountains and the afternoon sun that sets the church tower ablaze are truly memorable.

The region's greatest range of restaurants awaits and, 20km northwest in Orocovis, Puerto Rico's best adventure park.
