  • Coamo is a municipality founded 1579 in the south-central region of Puerto Rico, located north of Santa Isabel; south of Orocovis and Barranquitas; east of Villalba and Juana Díaz; and west of Aibonito and Salinas. Coamo is spread over 10 wards and Coamo Pueblo – the downtown area and the administrative center of the city. It is both a principal city of the Coamo Micropolitan Statistical Area and the Ponce-Yauco-Coamo Combined Statistical Area. Coamo is a small town nestled in a valley about 10 miles east of Ponce. It was named "San Blas Illescas de Coamo" by its first settlers. San Blas was the Catholic saint who remains the town's patron. Illescas is the Spanish town where the town founders originated. There are several theories regarding the origin of the word "Coamo". Some think it comes from an indigenous word that means "valley" but it is also plausible that Coamo derives its name from Coamex, who was a celebrated local cacique. Archeological digs near the region have produced some of the best examples of the island's pre-Columbian cultural artifacts. [undefined]
