Aguadilla day trip
Experience "the eye of the water"
Located northeast of Rincon, the town of Aguadilla is a popular day trip destination for many tourists. Nestled in the Western Costal Valley, Aguadilla borders the Atlantic Ocean. Its terrain is mainly flat, with the highest elevation at Jimenez Peak. The scenic Culebrinas River is its largest isolated body of water. Once the site of the Ramey Air Force Base, Aguadilla's former military airport is now home to the modern-day Rafael Hernandez Airport. The town's economy is supported primarily by the trading of tobacco, sugar, fruits, coffee, and cotton.
Founded in 1775 by Luis de Córdova, the town of Aguadilla gets its name from the Indian word "Guadiya," which translates to "garden."

Aguadilla offers several prime surfing spots, the most popular of which are Wilderness, Gas Chambers, and Crash Boat, once home to a navy fueling pier.
