El Pozo de Jacinto
Isabela, Puerto Rico
The Pozo de Jacinto is a popular natural attraction on Jobos beach in Isabela. The legend says that once upon a time there was a farmer named Jacinto who tied his favorite cow to him while he led the rest of his herd. One day the cow got too close to a well’s edge and fell in it, dragging Jacinto with it. Since that day, the well is known as the “Pozo de Jacinto”. Today it is said that if you want to attract luck, you should shout:: “Jacinto, give me the cow!” and you will see the sea lifting its angry waves. Be cautious when approaching the well; it is extremely dangerous.
