Updated on August 7, 2013

A Gringo who moved to Puerto Rico, Greg loves writing about the island he now resides on. He and Maria also wrote several bilingual books...


Maggie and I decided to hit the by-ways yesterday to take more pictures for this third part in my series on Puerto Rican Pueblos.

It was a gorgeous day as you can see from the pictures at the right. The sun was very hot and everyone was out.

I was only able to get three Pueblos for this installment because traffic was busy and we were having fun stopping for pinchos and other sights. Pinchos are a favorite here on the island and are made with either pork or chicken. They come on a stick with a piece of homemade bread. Here is a good recipe at the link below.

Scroll down and learn about the next three Pueblos in this virtual tour of Puerto Rico. Be sure and check out Part 1 and Part 2 too!

Naguabo holds some beautiful country over its 60.1 square miles. It has both beaches and mountains having much of the Caribbean National forest in its boundaries.

Naguabos nickname is Cuna de Grandes Artistas or Cradle Of Great Artists. As we drove through, I noticed some very beautiful architecture.It was founded in 1821 and was well worth the visit.

The mayor of Naguabo is: Hon. Maritza Meléndez Nazario

Barrios include:

  1. Daguao
  2. El Duque
  3. Playa Húcares
  4. Santiago y Lima
  5. Maizales
  6. Mariana
  7. Peña Pobre
  8. Río Blanco
  9. Pueblo of Naguabo

From Naguabo we drove South to Humacao. This is another Pueblo with extraordinary architecture.

Humacao's nickname is: "La Perla del Oriente " or the Pearl of the Orient. It is spread over 55.5 square miles. It was founded in 1722.

The mayor is: Marcelo Trujillo-Panisse (Partido Popular Democrático)

Humacao has many barrios. Here they are:

  1. Antón Ruiz
  2. Buena Vista
  3. Candelero Abajo
  4. Candelero Arriba
  5. Cataño
  6. Collores
  7. Cotto Mabu
  8. Jaguelles
  9. Junquito
  10. Las Asturianas
  11. Mabú
  12. Mambiche (Blanco and Prieto)
  13. Mariana
  14. Pasto Viejo
  15. Punta Santiago
  16. Palmas Del Mar
  17. Río Abajo
  18. Tejas

I would recommend visiting Humacao when you come to Puerto Rico; you will love it!




When we pulled into Juncos the sun was setting as you can see from the photographs. Juncos has no beach fronts; it is inland. It was founded in 1797 and sits on 26.6 square miles.

Juncos is also very beautiful. The nickname is: La Ciudad del Valenciano or The City Of Valencia.

The mayor is: Hon. Alfredo Alejandro Carrión(P.P.D.)

Juncos has many barrios; they include:

  1. Caimito
  2. Ceiba Norte

  4. Gurabo Abajo
  5. Gurabo Arriba
  6. Lirios
  7. Mamey
  8. Valenciano Abajo
  9. Valenciano Arriba
  10. Juncos-Pueblo


Hope you enjoyed this part of visiting Puerto Rico. I know I am having fun doing it.

      Cool foe-toes, and I love them all, but particularly Juncos as I have a lot of junc in my yard right now as well.

      I really wish my parents would have met in Puerto Rico.

      Then, I would in all probability be living there right now!

      Keep snapping dat shutter, kids :)
