Loiza, Anasco, Arecibo, longest river, Bayamon

Puerto Rico has many relatively short rivers and streams. Some of the rivers are dammed for hydroelectric power and thus have small lakes along their courses. One such body of water is Lago de Yauco, on the Yauco River. The longest river is the Grande de Arecibo, which flows to the northern coast. Other rivers include the Grande de Anasco, Bayamon, Cibuco, Culebrinas, La Plata, and Loiza. None of the rivers is navigable by large vessels.
