El Pozo de Jacinto

El Pozo de Jacinto


Isabela, Puerto Rico (PR)
Right in the middle of the rock formation there is a big hole into which the sea waves thrash. There is a legend about this hole, which we would like to share with you. One version tells the story of a farmer called Jacinto, who tied his favourite cow to him while leading the rest of his herd. In other versions Jacinto is a young man working for a farmer and looking after his herd. What the stories have in common, however, is that the cow came too close to the hole and fell into it - taking Jacinto with her and killing him.

According to the legend, water will shoot up from the hole if you call "Jacinto, give me the cow".
