Artist Eric Fernandez creates Caguas with acrylic on a 12'' x 16'' canvas.
Caguas derives its name from a local Indian chief (Caguax) who was an early Christian convert. This town is known for its museums and the Sotomayor del Toro Reserve, a 63-acre reserve on the steep slopes of Cerro La Santa. This tract of virgin tropical forest shelters numerous wildlife species, and streams here nourish the headwaters of the Turabo River. The town's economic activities include: diamond cutting, tobacco processing, and the manufacture of leather goods, glass.
