Cordillera Central - San Juan Puerto Rico

Adjuntas is a mountain town in the Cordillera Central Mountain Range. It has a lovely cool climate and places to stay on your journey through the mountains. . This photo (above left) was taken looking down from the panoramic route just above Adjuntas on the way to Lake Garzas and the Guilarte Forest Reserve. Adjuntas is one of the easier mountain towns to reach due to the new road # 10 that starts in Ponce and goes to Arecibo ( except for one stretch). There are several places to stay the night. Lago Dos Bocas near Utuado (above right). All the lakes in Puerto Rico are man made and used either to catch water, make electricity or both. There is good fishing in the lakes. (see fishing page). The municipality has a small ferry boat that takes people out on the lake on weekends and several restaurants will pick you up at the municipal dock in their whalers. (weekends). You cannot swim in the lakes of Puerto Rico due to a tropical liver parasite called Bhilharzia. " I Just took a trip around the Cordillera Central mountains of Puerto Rico. Whenever I get a few days to do this I get happy! I spent the night in the Hotel Monte Rio in Adjuntas. What a terrific nights sleep I had. Very clean, reasonably priced and quiet. I was exhausted from driving well into the dark due to my persistence in seeing all the Toro Negro Lakes after a swim in the Coamo Hot springs! The next morning I continued my drive up into the Guilarte Reserve. Passing beautiful Lake Garzas on the way up. The Guilarte Peak is the only one without all the radio tower paraphernalia and has a magnificent view. It's a half hour hike from the road. You can park your car at the concession and walk up. Great typical food can be bought at this concession, they open on the weekends and holidays. I started getting dizzy with all the curves on the road so I decided to get down off the mountains and go swimming on Gilligan's Island beyond Guanica on the south coast."
