The municipality of Yauco is divided into 20 neighborhoods and Yauco Pueblo , the administrative center and main town of the municipality. Rio Prieto is a town in this municipality.
The municipality has been distinguished by the agricultural production of minor fruits, especially in the coffee cultivation. The coffee grown in the mountains of Yauco, has validated great attributes such as "the best aromatic coffee in the world". This is why Yauco is known as the Coffee People. Historians and economists say that the best coffee was exported from Yauco to the Vatican.
The town of Yauco has always had a long commercial tradition. Fray Inigo Abbad y Lasierra (1745-1813), born in Estadilla, Spain, was a Benedictine monk and the first historian to extensively document Puerto Rico's history, nationality, and culture. He pointed out that by 1776, the people of Yauco had traded their agricultural products, woods, with the neighboring islands, exchanging them for clothing.
We look forward to building this relationship.
