I have lived my entire Life in Mayaguez, and the ambient is different from other cities. There's a vast variety of youths and elders living in the city. Through the day it's very calm around, at night it's a bit different, more wild I would say. The education in Mayaguez is somewhat moderate, but it could be better.

One of the best college towns inPuerto Rico. Like many places in Puerto Rico, there is a lack of public transportaiton in the area and generally getting from place to place without a vehicle is quite difficult.
It is a good city to live in Puerto Rico. It is very rainy but the beaches compensate for the weather. It has a lot to offer from the food, to the businesses and community that unites us all.
