Balcones (Balconies) are very important to the Puerto Rican people, if you pay attention you’ll see that most homes have a balcony in the front typically decorated with pots filled with colorful flowers. Here in Cabo Rojo, locals still enjoy the simple things in life such as sitting on a rocking chair with their loved ones and friends that come over after dinner to talk about their day holding a comforting cup of cafe con leche.
Make sure you take some time to walk around El Pueblo, take your camera and take some shots of the homes; you’ll feel as though you have taken a step back to times of the past, the homes in town particularly around the plaza have been carefully restored and owners take much pride in conserving the elegant Spanish Architecture. The colorful tones will put you in a happy mood.
If you lived in Cabo Rojo, share your favorite memories in your balcon.
