Arecibo

Settled in 1556, Arecibo became the third Spanish settlement. Founded sixty years later, in 1616, when the King of Spain granted that section of land and the Indians on it to Lope Conchillos, under the governorship of Captain Felipe de Beaumont y Navarra. The leader (Indian chief) of these Indians was called Jamaica Aracibo, their yucayeque was named after him and ultimately the town was called by that same name.

Arecibo is also known as La Villa del Capitn Correa in memory of a battle fought successfully on its shores by Captain Antonio Correa and a handful of soldiers to rebel a British invasion by sea lead by Englishmen Admiral Whelstone in August 5, 1702.
