about Bayamon

Bayamón (not to be confused with Bayamo, Cuba) is a city in northern Puerto Rico.

Bayamón, Puerto Rico, is one of Puerto Rico's largest cities situated in what is considered to be the Metropolitan Area. Founded in 1772, the city of Bayamón was named after taino indian chief or cacique. It shares its metropolitan area status with San Juan, Guaynabo, Cataño, Canóvanas and Carolina.

Bayamón was always a progressive city. The only reason that, unlike Ponce, Aguadilla and Mayagüez, it doesn't count with an airport is probably its proximity to San Juan.

Bayamón's most progressive times came during the tenure of Ramón Luis Rivera as mayor. He lasted in the city hall from 1976 to 2001. Rivera was asked by his party, the New Progressist Party, to run for governor, but the main reason why he didn't do that was his lack of understanding of English. However, he thought of Bayamón as his piece of art, and he shaped it into an incredible city in which to live.

During his tenure, he built many exotic touristic attractions that Bayamoneses, Puerto Ricans and international tourists have enjoyed for years. These include El Parque del tren, which is a park featuring what was, until 2003, Puerto Rico's only working train, and an example of a DC-3 that used to fly for United Airlines, a suspension bridge believed to be one of only 3 of its type in all of Puerto Rico, a science park known as Parque De Las Ciencias which many people have described as the Disney World of the Caribbean, and last but not least, city hall itself.

It shall be noted, that Bayamón's suspension bridge is a pedestrian bridge only; in other words, people cross an avenue on this bridge, it was not built for automobile use.

Rivera built a city hall that is a building that crosses over an avenue, and is believed to be the only one of its class around the world. Visitors inside the building can look down and

Bayamón is also one of the cities to host the Tren Urbano in 2003. Tren Urbano is Puerto Rico's second working passenger train, after Bayamón's park trensito.

Famous Bayamoneses include Francisco Oller, Chuito el de Bayamón, and world boxing champions Hector 'Macho' Camacho and Daniel Santos.

The famous boxing fight between Alexis Arguello and Alfredo Escalera (their first; their equally legendary rematch was held in Rimini, Italy) was held there in 1978.

The Vaqueros de Bayamón are the city's BSN representatives and the team with the most championships in history, with 13.

There is also a 'Vaqueros' baseball team, but this one hasn't had as much luck as their basketball counterparts.
