Casa Ponce de León

The roughly hewn stone building known as the Casa Ponce de León was the home of 16th century explorer and governor of Puerto Rico, Juan Ponce de León.

The fortified building looks more like a barn than the home of one of the region’s most famous men, but inside you’ll find fascinating relics from the era.

Furnishings, chests and even the explorer’s suit of armor are highlighted on a tour of the interior.

Practical Info

The Casa Ponce de León is 1.5 miles (3 kilometers) outside the town of San Rafael de Yuma on the DR’s southeast coast.

The nearest major town is Boca de Yuma, 6 mi (10 km) away, which in turn is around 15 mi (25 km) from Punta Cana.
