Check out the Colorful Macromurals in Las Piedras

I have to say that I am loving the macromurals that are popping up in various towns around the island. Just seeing so much color is a joy! The newest one is in Barriada La Rivera in Las Piedras, and it is beautiful. The idea behind all these murals is to help transform marginal communities and make them a vibrant tourist destination, hopefully increasing small business activity and community pride.

Las Piedras Pintalto

The organization staging these displays is “Pintalto, Inc.”, a project led by architect Samuel González Rodríguez. He works with a number of sponsors, muralists, volunteers, and of course the mayors of the towns and the community members to create these beautiful, creative masterpieces. They have already made these macromurals in the towns of Manatí, Yauco, and Aguadilla. Now Las Piedras has been added to the list of must see places! Their macromural is called “Tierra Luz” and it makes me smile just to see the colors and the murals.

Las Piedras Pintalto

The buildings that are painted (some are occupied, some are vacant), are located mainly on Calle Joaquin Poupart. They start at the Public Plaza – you can’t miss it. Even the church is painted! The Las Piedras project, as of March 2020, has 35 painted building and 14 murals.

That is the long way to get to Ceiba from SJU. But if that is your plan, you can take RT 3 in Humacao and check out the Nature reserve, or just enjoy the waterfront drive. Restaurants waterfront in Naguabo.

We are going to drive through here on our way from SJU to Ceiba. Do you recommend any places to eat nearby or anything else to stop and see along the way?
