Caribbean Games Mayaguez 2010
Only 100 days left for the Mayaguez 2010 Caribbean Games. There has been much commotion and preparation within the last 5 years to prepare the western side of the island: new roads built, old roads fixed; old sports facilities torn down, new ones built.
This region is called Porta Del Sol, and extends through 17 municipalities, from the Atlantic to the Caribbean. Many of the games will be held in Mayaguez, but many events will also be spread out throughout the island.
31 countries will participate with Cuba abstaining.
Over 250,000 visitors are anticipated for this event starting July 17 and lasting through August 1.
This video presents the first look of the beachfront facilities in Mayaguez.

- Triathlon – Saturday July 24, 2010
- Triathlon Relay – Sunday July 25, 2010
- BMX – Wednesday, July 28, 2010
