History[edit | edit source]

The present territory of Aguadilla was taken from the territory of Aguada in 1775. Spanish royals populated the area. It is well known for its busy part that serves all ships that travel from Europe to Havana, Cuba, and Mexico.
Aguadilla was the site of the United State's Ramey Air Force Base until 1952. The base is now home to the Puerto Rican Ports department, the International airport, and a satellite of the University of Puerto Rico. Also, a variety of government agencies such as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the Puerto Rio Police and National Guard are housed at the base.
As of 2010, the population of Aguadilla was 60,949. [1]
