References and agriculture[edit]

Most of the land near Aguadulce is dedicated to agricultural use, much of it to the cultivation of the Sugar cane. The name of the town translates literally as "sweet water", though the phrase also means "fresh water" (as opposed to salt water), it seems more likely a reference to a source of fresh water than the sugar cane cultivation fields, several salt producing companies have their factories in the town as well.

Important figures[edit]

Aguadulce is the birthplace of major league baseball players Carlos Lee, Davis Romero and also the already retired Juan Berenguer.
