I love Mayaguez! It is the best city in the island to have the most complete and fulfilling college experience. Our university is amazing and has a beautiful campus, there are many local restaurants, everything is very accesible, and there is always something to do. It is an amazing city with incredible people, and there is never a dull moment when in Mayaguez.

Mayagüez is a beautiful town in the west and full of cultural contrasts in Puerto Rico. There someone can find everything in every corner for their own taste. A fusion of city and countryside. The adventure to know the town is of pure entertainment and flavor. As Mayaguez has excellent restaurants with various food dishes, bookstores, like any university city
I think despite so many people living in this town, the corresponding agencies for keeping it fully functional fail daily to do so, the DMV as well as other government agencies just do not work. Other than, it is a tad overpopulated but full of amazing people, the nightlife is worth taking a trip here for and the food choices are amazing.
