Stepping Back To 1920s Arecibo, Puerto Rico

Updated on December 27, 2014

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...

The early 1920's in Puerto Rico was economically good. Sugar was being produced and shipped out at great rates. In 1918, a major earthquake had damaged the island and the government knew they had to do something to help the economy. The Puerto Rico government started putting large sums of financial reserves into the public by expanding schools, hospitals, roads and bridges and what I will show you in this hub: hydroelectric power plants. Hydroelectric was the technology that kept power flowing in the early 20th century.

Planta Electric

Finding this hidden treasure in the pueblo of Arecibo, Puerto Rico can be quite difficult. When you do find this interesting old electric plant, you will feel as if you have just entered a time tunnel.

I strongly suggest that Arecibo government do some restoring to this old hydroelectric plant and the tourists will come.

When you walk further beyond the plant you will find nature at its finest. When you see the amazing waterfall, you will be astonished. I have posted a map on how to find the Chorros del Rio la Plata Waterfall. It is my understanding that if you walk further upstream, there is an even larger waterfall.

The pictures below the map will make you want to catch the first flight or cruise ship to Puerto Rico. It is an amazing place that many should see.
