Guanica - San Jacinto


Casa Alejada is located in the San Jacinto area of the city of Guanica about 25 miles to the west of Ponce on the Southwest coast of Puerto Rico.  The Southwest corner of Puerto Rico is in the shadow of the central mountain range, and rains carried by the Northeast trade winds don’t often reach to San Jacinto which creates a unique dry environment.  San Jacinto is a small peninsula to the east of Guanica and backs up onto a Dry Forest Preserve.   The area is quiet and out of the way, yet within easy reach of major population centers.  San Jacinto is a two hour (90 mile) drive from the San Juan airport, all but the last six miles on limited access highway.
