Welcome to Cabo Rojo

Cabo Rojo (El Pueblo) – Cabo Rojo the town, that is – is the only bland part of what is otherwise a fascinating region. It sprawls haphazardly around Hwy 2 and acts as a supply center for the sparsely populated, mangrove-fringed coast outside town. Before you hastily depart for the nearby beauty spots, the town has three reasons to linger: a museum remembering the area's colorful erstwhile personalities, an office of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company and one of the west's best healthy-eating restaurants.
