Jayuya, Puerto Rico

"Primera Hora", a Puerto Rican newspaper, published on August 28, 2006 that the very cultural town in Puerto Rico, Jayuya, was established as a municipality on the year 1533. Many people come from around the world to visit Jayuya because it celebrates a lot of cultural activities.

For example, in the month of May, the "Tomato Festival" is organized as a cultural festivity. People participate making tropical dishes using tomato as an ingredient in all their recipes. They prepare dishes that include salads, juices, and even deserts.

Artisans take an important role in this feast by creating crafts and decorating stuff as well. It is time for the families to go out with their children to enjoy. Local and island wide artists come to add the musical flavor to the three days happy celebration.

On November, by the time the Puerto Rican Discovery comes, "The Indians Festival" take us to the past for a few days, too. Schools participate in colorful indian parades. Children and adults are dressed with indian customs and the festival turns into a colorful and attractive cultural expression. The second night of this festival, the Indian Queen is selected. Beautiful young women come to display not only their cinnamon indian beauty, but the original dresses made with natural indian ornaments.

You are invited to the next "Indian Festival" this year! So, do not hesitate and take your vacations to the Caribbean, but especifically to Jayuya and enjoy this great opportunity, too. We welcome you ahead of time.
