Places To Visit In Puerto Rico

Guajataca Lake

Guajataca Lake
October 10th, 2014

Guajataca Lake is a beautiful man-made lake situated in the towns of Isabela, San Sebastian and Quebradillas. It’s surrounded by rainforests, and locals and tourists alike come here for picnics, fishing, camping, sight seeing and hiking.
 
Although Puerto Rico is a tropical island, you will notice the cool temperature when you visit Guajataca Lake. In fact, it’s usually 10 degrees cooler here compared to anywhere else on the island.
 
If you love the outdoors and want to spend time with your family fishing or enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer, then include Guajataca Lake in your must visit list when traveling to Puerto Rico.
 
A Little History
 
Guajataca Lake, also known as Lago de Guajataca, was created by the United States Army Corps of Engineers in 1929. This 324 acre body of water was meant to be a reservoir and named after the town where it is located.
 
The water flowing into Guajataca Lake comes from the Guajataca River. It’s an excellent spot for fishing and camping. Because it is also strategically located (Gozalandia and the Guajataca State Forest are within a 4 mile radius), there are plenty of visitors going to Guajataca Lake every day.




And just in case you don’t catch any fish or forget to bring any food with you, you’ve got nothing to worry about. That’s because there are nearby restaurants you can go to such as the Pirate of the Sea, Bar La Lomita and Ada & Molli Café, all offering great tasting local food choices that are very popular with tourists.
 
Things to Do in Guajataca Lake
 
Swimming is not allowed in the lake however you can use a kayak to take you from point A to point B. You don’t have to bring your own kayak though because there are rental shops around the lake.
 
In addition, you can also go fishing. You can find catfish, tilapia, large mouth bass and sunfish in this large lake. You may want to bring with you a large cooler or container though because you’re likely to catch a lot of fish here!

And because it’s cooler here than most places in Puerto Rico, you don’t have to worry about the blazing sun damaging your skin.
 
So come visit Guajataca Lake where you can see all kinds of wildlife. From colorful birds to exotic plants – you’ll see all that nature has to offer right here. The quiet and serene ambience surrounding the lake is a good escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Spend a day or two in Guajataca Lake and you’ll really be able to appreciate the natural beauty that Puerto Rico has to offer.
