It is nestled amid hills and mountains, and nearby, between Barranquitas and Aibonito, is located the "cañón de San Cristóbal" (Canyon of Saint Cristopher); one of the deepest canyons in the Indies. For years, the overlook was used as a municipal garbage; in the last decade, the refuse was removed and the site restored.HistoryBarranquitas's local Taino Indian Cacique was called Orocobix and his yucayeque or tribe was known as the Jatibonicu Taino.The town was founded in 1803 by Antonio Aponte Ramos.Early in the 20th century, Barranquitas residents, known as Barranquiteños, had a short but legendary territory war with residents of the city of Comerío.Plan your tour of Barranquitas and Puerto Rico travel itinerary using our Puerto Rico route maker app.
