Mayaguez is on the western side of the Puerto Rico. This isn't far from where sugar cane was first brought to the island from Hispaniola, about 50 miles to the west, in 1515. The sugar industry in Puerto Rico closed in 2000 but being a member of the grass family, sugar cane continues to grow in many places in Puerto Rico.
It will be interesting to see how this progresses.
