Mayagüez Municipio Reviews

5 reviews
All Categories
Mayaguez does not have many beautiful places as other towns here in Puerto Rico, but its people makes it better. Mayaguez's residents are friendly and so loving. Nightlife is not bad due to the fact that there are other universities and the students always gather up on weekends to take a break of the tiring week of classes.

I was born in Mayaguez and came back home after many years. It is a very peaceful place to live. Of course, it depends of which area you reside. For the most part it doesn't have as much crime as the capital. Traffic can be heavy during school time but nothing too extreme. It had evolve tremendously during the years aesthetically speaking thanks to the current mayor.
Lived here my whole life. College town one of the biggest cities in Puerto Rico. Lot's of churches, good nightlife, drug and crime are kinda high. Above average for Puerto Rico's standard.
