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.
