DEDICATED TO THE MUNICIPALITIES OF CABO ROJO AND MOCA
Cabo Rojo is known as “El Pueblo de Cofresí” (Cofresí’s town). Cabo Rojo was founded in December 17, 1771 by Nicolás Ramírez Arellano and Miguel de Muesas.
It is said that Cabo Rojo obtained its name by the considerable amount of minerals in its coasts that made the waters look reddish. Cabo means headland and rojo, means the color red.
Located in the southwest corner of Puerto Rico, Cabo Rojo is surrounded by miles and miles of beaches. It also stands at the mouth of the Boqueron bay, one of Puerto Rico’s deepest and best protected harbors, extending some 3 1/2 miles inland, sheltering over a mile of white sand bordered by clear water is wonderful for swimming and lounging, it is the town’s most popular beach destination with a good reason.
