As of May 2018, Hacienda Gripiñas has not announced plans to reopen, due to damage sustained during Hurricane Maria.
The Hacienda Gripiñas, located high in the mountains of Jayuya, offers visitors a chance to escape from the daily grind and relax in an intimate, pastoral setting. The estate was originally established in 1863 by the founder of the municipality of Jayuya, Eusebio Pérez del Castillo, as the coffee cultivation boom hit the island. The plantation maintained a high level of productivity until the death of Don Eusebio, after which dwindling coffee production gradually forced the hacienda to shut down. It was back in 1975 when the main house at Gripiñas reopened its doors with accommodations for visiting guests, highlighting the rustic furniture and antique machinery of the villa against the backdrop of nature’s splendor. The grounds also hold a well-received restaurant, swimming pool and outdoor bar. Visitors wont regret being swept away by Hacienda Gripiñas’s quaint charm and Jayuya’s stunningly beautiful peaks.
