Visit Hato Rey's Top Attractions

Featuring the Golden Mile (Milla de Oro), Puerto Rico's largest shopping center, Plaza Las Americas, and the José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum, Hato Rey was at one time covered in sugar cane fields where cattle used to roam. The name of Hato Rey is a reference to the past, as it means "king's herd of cattle", but today there is no sign of cattle or sugar cane in this busy area which covers three wards of San Juan – Hato Rey Central, Hato Rey Norte (North) and Hato Rey Sur (South).

Explore Puerto Rico's Northeast Ecological Corridor

Stretching from Luquillo to Fajardo along the northeast coast of Puerto Rico, the Northeast Ecological Corridor features vastly diverse habitats – wetlands, mangroves, beaches, forests and a bioluminescent lagoon - supporting a fascinating variety of flora and fauna. The preservation of the region has been a controversial topic over the years, with former Puerto Rican Governor Aníbal Acevedo-Vilá passing a decree in April 2008 declaring it a protected area, and Governor Luis G Fortuño-Burset reversing the decision in October 2009. Following a protracted battle by environmentalists against developing the area, in June 2012, up to two-thirds of the original land was re-designated as a nature reserve.
