Caguas is a city in Puerto Rico.


Public transportation in Caguas, as in most of Puerto Rico is limited to small, “Carro Públicos” (Jitney type taxis). There is service from and to San Juan and Rio Piedras, however, to get to Caguas from the airport can be an adventure. You will have to take a bus to Rio Piedras (the main bus terminal) then take walk several minutes to find the guagua for Caguas. It is a very inexpensive way to travel, but can take up to 3 hours.

Within Caguas, there are several buses and taxis serving the town. Make sure to ask the driver before you go in for your destination.

There will be a light-rail system connecting Caguas to San Juan, but it is not expected to happen until 2008.


  • Plaza Palmer in the centre of the old section of town, is the main point from where to explore Caguas. At the centre there is a statue of Jose Guatier Benitez, a romantic poet that made Caguas famous in the 19th Century. There is also a clock that highlights some of the most prominent cagueños.
  • City Hall or Casa Alcaldía has been very well preserved, and recently renovated. It has been the centre of power for Caguas since the beginning.
  • Catedral El Dulce Nombre de Jesus, built in the 18th century and renovated after an earthquake destroyed most of it. It has the remains of the fist Puerto Rican Saint, Saint Charlie, born in Caguas.
  • Museums: Casa Rosada, Museum of Tobacco, Quinton House.
