Once one of the island's largest coffee plantations, the 1838 Hacienda Buena Vista has been restored to give a look at rural life in the colonial era. The most awesome sight is the two-story-tall waterwheel, which is turned by a torrent of water diverted from a nearby river (when it's going at full speed, the sound is deafening). The manor house is also interesting to see—especially the ingenious ways the family cooled the rooms and warmed the food before electricity arrived in these parts. The hacienda, now owned by the Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico, is just a miles north of Ponce, the island's second-largest city, and can be seen on a day trip from San Juan. Tours are given Wednesdays through Sundays only, and reservations are required—call ahead a few days in advance.
