About Barranquitas

About the City of Barranquitas

Barranquitas, Puerto Rico is a small mountain town located in the central part of Puerto Rico, about one hour by winding roads from San Juan, the capital. It is nestled amid hills and mountains, and nearby, between Barranquitas and Aibonito, is located the "caon de San Cristobal" (Canyon of San Cristopher); one of the deepest canyons in the Indies. For years, the overlook was tragically used as a municipal garbage; in the last decade, the refuse was carted out and the site restored. Barranquitas is the burial place of two Puerto Rican Governors, Luis Muoz Rivera (who was born in town) and his son, Luis Muoz Marn (who was born in San Juan). This has made Barranquitas a popular tourist attraction among Puerto Ricans. The birthplace of Muoz Rivera has been turned into a museum. Early in the 20th century, Barranquitas residents, known as Barranquiteos, had a short but legendary territory war with residents of the city of Comero. Sports wise, Barranquitas has no professional sports teams, but there are some amateur sports teams that play there. A yearly craft fair is held in town.
