Central Communities


Cumuto lies south of the Aripo Savannas and is an agricultural community that produces cocoa, as well as the citrus crops of orange and grapefruit. During World War II, a U.S. military base was constucted in Cumuto at Waller Field for use in providing combat training for American soldiers. The aircraft landing strip on the base was later converted to a racing car circuit.


Calypso: Cumuto is the birthplace of actor and calypsonian Sir Lancelot.
