Luquillo is spread over 5 wards and Luquillo Pueblo (The downtown area and the administrative center of the city). It is part of the Fajardo Metropolitan Statistical Area.The city of Luquillo is 26 square miles and it sits on 12 miles of Atlantic coastline. It is nestled between the blue waters of the Atlantic and the El Yunque National Rainforest, giving it a diverse and unique ecology. Luquillo marks the beginning of the Northeast Ecological Corridor Nature Reserve which runs down the coast from Luquillo’s town square all the way down to the Seven Seas Beach in Fajardo. During certain times of the year, it is not unusual to encounter rare or endangered species of fauna (like the Leatherback Turtle) while visiting in Luquillo.HistoryLuquillo was founded in 1797 and is known as "La Capital del Sol", "La Riviera de Puerto Rico", and "Los Come Cocos" . The town was named after the Indian cacique Loquillo, who died a few years after the last Indian rebellion in 1513.CityscapeBarriosJuan MartínLuquillo PuebloMameyes IMata de PlátanoPitahayaSabanaFortuna Playa Fortuna CarreteraRio ChiquitoCasa BlancaVilla AngelinaEstancias Del AtlanticoTourismIf you stay on the coastal highway going east from San Juan, you'll soon reach Luquillo Beach.
