Hacienda Don Carmelo lies across 60 acres of rolling hills overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. They are horse breeders and trainers, and home of Escuela Puertorriqueña del Arte Ecuestre. The Hacienda is a marvelous special events venue.
Hacienda Don Carmelo was founded by the late Don Carmelo Figueroa Rodriguez and his wife Sara Padilla, 54 years ago. For the last 34 years their daughter, Melba, has been in charge of the Hacienda. The farm was previously dedicated to raising cattle, but the only existing structure from its origin is water through that now serves as a flower planter under the tree house. The main stable and quarantine facility were built by Don Carmelo in the eighties. Adjacent stables, round pens, water wells, and covered arena have been built through the years. Tree planting has produced a lush flora that houses exotic tropical birds and provides shade to the interior roads. Visits are by appointment only.
Certified by the Puerto Rico Tourism Company as a Agrotourism Project, Hacienda Carmelo offers guided tours to the visitors, only by appointment. Please call for rates and dates.
