GENERAL INFORMATION
 

ISABELA

Named for Isabel Queen of Spain, Isabela is also known as: "El Jardín del Noroeste", "La Ciudad De Los Gallitos", "El Pueblo de los Quesitos de Hoja". Patron Saint: San Antonio de  Padua (San Antonio de la Tuna).

Barrios: Arenales Altos, Arenales Bajos, Bajuras, Bejucos, Coto, Galateo Alto, Galateo Bajo, Guayabos, Guerrrero, Jobos, Llanada, Mora, Planas

Before the European invasion this area was one of the most important Taíno chiefdoms and was known as Guajataca (Taíno for "The Water Ladle"). The Cacíque, Mabodomaca was one of the leaders during the Indian Wars. Legend has it that when his warriors could no longer hold back the invaders he led his people up the Guajataca River and disappeared into the mountains.

In 1725 the first European settlers built a town near the Guajataca River and named it  San Antonio de la Tuna. The area was later abandoned until the early 1800's when it  was resettled. On May 21, 1819 the town was founded.

Isabela is part of Arecibo's Senatorial District, covers approximately 55.4 square miles and is situated on the north west coast near Aguadilla. Isabela's principal economic activities are: tourism, industry, dairy products, livestock, leather goods, tabaco.

Isabela's reef-lined Atlantic beaches (Jobos, Shacks, Surfer's Beach, Secret Spot, Guajataca, Pastillo, Table Top, Sardinera, Montones, etc.) are ideal for swimming, surfing, fishing, diving, snorkeling and other water sports.
