Set in a flat valley of the Central Mountain Range of Puerto Rico, Caguas is known as the “Heart of Creole Country.”  There are numerous cultural attractions open on a daily basis which allow guests to learn about the history, the government, and the arts that have influenced this town.  In order to spend some time on a beach, it will require a bit of a drive, but there is still plenty to keep you busy outdoors, from flourishing botanical gardens to a boardwalk on the river, and of course, trips into the mountains.
