Sugar mills in the cities of Canvanas and Fajardo competed for the plantation crop. As the economy shifted from agriculture to manufacturing, the sugar mills closed and the plantation was divided among the heirs into many small farms. Each heir received one equally divided lot. Due to squabbling among these heirs, the property was non-producing for many years. Being in the third leg of the Bermuda Triangle, the intrigue and stories are numerous.
In early 1985, Oliva and Emilio Ros, owners of Fisherman's Wharf Catering Service, began contacting these heirs with the intention of purchasing the land. For 17 years, Mr. Ros had been the manager of the Banker's Club, an executive banquet facility in the heart of San Juan's financial district (la milla de oro). In 1986, they purchased six of these farms with the option for an additional twenty-two acres. In addition, a seventy-five acre farm, located one half mile from the plantation, is also owned and operated by the Ros'.
Ro Grande Plantation Eco Resort was born. The resort is set on forty acres containing recreation, banquet, meeting and lodging facilities. It has become the island favorite of both locals and visitors to Puerto Rico alike. A refreshing and relaxing atmosphere of a plantation country estate awaits you. With 30,000 feet of covered pavilion space, the elements and number of guests are never a problem.
In Puerto Rican mythology, the El Yunque Rain Forest is the home of the God of good. El Yunque Rain Forest is one of a very few environmentally necessary resources that is actually expanding. Set in the lavishly green foothills of El Yunque Rain Forest, the plantation provides a spectacular setting for any event.
The mountain spring-fed Ro Grande River, which is clean and rarely rushed, flows across the property. Eastern trade winds frequently bring a short afternoon shower, keeping the flora and fauna tropical green year-round, while holding the temperature a few degrees lower than the city. With sixty-three individual species of fruit trees, various tropical flowers, and abundant wildlife on the property, visitors are able to experience the ambiance of the only rain forest in the United States National Forest System. Two walking trails have been carefully prepared for a close-up natural experience.
Located five miles from one of the most popular and beautiful beaches in Puerto Rico (Luquillo Beach) and only twenty minutes from San Juan's bustling Luis Muoz Marn International Airport, El Yunque attracts thousands of visitors each year.
As the need of individuals and groups increased for a closer experience to nature, Ro Grande Plantation Eco Resort opened a new nine villa lodge. With all the amenities of the city, the relaxed elegance provides a tranquil setting for getting away from it all. Each 800 to 1200 square foot loft suite looks out upon a double level patio deck and includes cable TV, VCR, micro fridge, microwave and Jacuzzi.
