Welcome to Jayuya

Steeped in Taíno legend, the original settlement of Jayuya had little contact with the rest of the island until 1911, when it was declared a municipality. Efforts to keep Taíno culture alive include several related sights such as the quirky Museo del Cemí, plus a festival of music, food, games and a Miss Taíno pageant.

Jayuya has long had a reputation for coffee production and, more recently, moonshine rum – visitors will have a chance to sample both.
