If a donor has no hair on their body, than a hair test cannot be performed!

Aguada (/???w??d?/; Spanish:[a??waa]) is a municipality of Puerto Rico (U.S.), located in the western coastal valley region bordering the Atlantic Ocean, east of Rincn, west of Aguadilla and Moca; and north of Aasco and Mayagez. It is part of the Aguadilla-Isabela-San Sebastin Metropolitan Statistical Area. Aguada's population is spread over 17 wards and Aguada Pueblo (the downtown area and the administrative center of the city).

According to sources, a Tano settlement called Aymamn was located close to the Culebrinas River. Although there is dispute to it, some sources believe that Christopher Columbus entered the island of Puerto Rico through Aguada on his second voyage in November 1493.

In July 1510, Cristbal de Sotomayor received control of the area from Juan Ponce de Len and renamed the town Villa de Sotomayor. However, in 1511 the settlement was attacked and burned by the local Tanos. That same year, the King ordered a monastery established in the island, and the Ermita de Espinar was founded. The name of the region was then changed to San Francisco de Ass de la Aguada, since the friars were Franciscan. The monastery was finished in 1516. In 1526, King Charles I of Spain officially founded the Aguada settlement. However, in 1529, Tanos attacked the monastery killing the friars and burning the settlement.

Still, Aguada resurfaced and became a stopover point for ships on their way to Spain from South America. On September 17, 1662, King Charles II of Spain emitted a Royal Decree declaring Aguada as a "village", and assigning Juan Lpez de Segura as First Lieutenant.
