Set in the midst of fertile coastal flatlands west of San Juan
, the town of Vega Baja has grown into a modern Puerto Rican municipality. In addition to having one of the most popular beaches, locals and visitors alike enjoy viewing the long vistas over canefields and marshes, and an array of deciduous foliage.
An official town bulletin has a tongue-in-cheek poster on town history and famous residents from the tallest man, the drunk, the beggar and the basketball fan.
Vega Baja is part of the San Juan-Bayamon, Puerto Rico metro area.
