Location

Cayey, Puerto Rico

This is a calm and quiet residential neighborhood, there are nice local places to eat and have drinks. The closer one is about 2-mins away in car. There is a baseball park at the end of the street that have a trail to run or walk.

Cayey has various famous amenities as the "Ruta del Lechón" a road full of pork smokehouses, Lake Carite for kayaking and paddleboarding and hiking tours across natural reserves as La Robleda, Bosque de Pinos and Yeyesa Planadas.

Aibonito, the next mountain town is full of small dive bars and "chinchorros" on the main #1 road. Cayey is also close to Salinas, a south coast town with delicious options for fresh seafood lovers. Cayey is halfway between San Juan and Ponce, one hour away from each one, north and south.
