Origins of
the dime-sized singer

There was once a beautiful goddess who fell in love with Coquí, the son of the Cacique. When he went out to fish, she would make sure that he came back with a big catch, and he would sing praises to her.

One evening, she came to him in the form of a Taíno maiden, and they fell in love.

She told Coquí that she would come back the next evening at moonrise, but the next evening came, and with it came the evil Juracán. The sky blackened and his winds howled and the goddess tried to protect her lover, but Juracán snatched him away and she never saw him again.

Her heart now shattered, the goddess could not go on without her beautiful Coquí! In remorse, she created this tiny frog in memory of her fallen prince and his beautiful voice.

Emulating her favorite trait of Coquí, the frog will sing his name forevermore.
