Attractions in Cayey

Located in the Central Mountains of Puerto Rico, Cayey is a definite departure than what most people imagine when they picture a Caribbean getaway – but in a good way.  Although it lacks a beach to call its own, the area is lush with natural surroundings that include rivers and over 6,000 acres of protected park land.  The best news is that when you're ready to tour cultural attractions or visit a beach, the drive is rarely more than an hour.  

Beaches

You'll find a small variety of beaches to choose from, although they are all found just outside of Cayey. Click on the name of the beach for a detailed guide to that specific beach.

Playita Machete: The shore of Playita Machete is sparse, with trees closer to the water than most other beaches on the island. Where you can see sand, it is tan, and the waters are a murky blue-green.

A second place that beach-goers can consider is Punta Pozuelo. Located in a small little community surrounded by a protected forest, Punta Pozuelo Beach is a great location for any fan of nature or quiet. Beach visitors can walk the coast and take a look at the old town here, as well as the wild mangroves that claim the area opposite the beach.

Punta Guilarte Beach: The beach is just west of the Patillas Airport, and drivers can simply take Expresso Jose Barbosa to the road adjacent to the airport. Taking that road south will lead you right to the beach.

These examples are only a few of your options. If interested, you can find out more by visiting this page.

Natural Attractions

Caguas Botanical Garden

Travelers who like the open air are likely to have a pleasant time visiting Bosque Estatal De Carite. Created in 1935 to protect the increasingly vulnerable watershed from erosion and the growing influence of industry on the island. Its easy access and many trails make it a popular destination for tourists and locals off all kinds that want to take a quick look at the natural side of Puerto Rico.

A second local attraction to consider is San Cristobol Canyon. Named as one of the Top 10 Natural Wonders of Puerto Rico, San Cristobal Canyon is the only canyon on the island.
