Year Established: 1929
Description:

Puerto Rico’s western region of Porta del Sol is known the world over for its spectacular beaches and sunsets. Scenic wonders also await those who venture inward towards more elevated terrain – where some of the area’s lesser known but equally beautiful destinations can be found. The Lago Guajataca, located on route 119 between the municipalities of Quebradillas, San Sebastián, Lares, and Isabela, is one such stop.

Fed by waters from the eponymous river, this man-made lake was constructed in 1929 for irrigation purposes, a function it still carries out to this day throughout the island’s northwest. The 10 square kilometers it occupies also serve as a wildlife refuge administered by Puerto Rico’s Department of Natural Resources, who maintain a recreational area for visitors to enjoy during the day.

Fishing and kayaking are favorite activities due to the stillness of Lake Guajatacas’s waters – while its surrounding lands are filled with lush, green vegetation and local wildlife. However, to sit by the shore and contemplate the sky as it reflects on the water’s calm surface is to learn firsthand of the intoxicating sense of freedom that only a special place like this lake can release inside each one of us.
