                                                       HISTORY OF CARMELITA

The community of Carmelita was established many years ago, as a central camp for rubber cutters, whom the rubber company Riglers and Adams had sent to prepare an aeroplane strip to assist in the transportation of rubber. At the time there was not even vehicle access into the jungle. Several of these families came from parts of Mexico, and they decided to formalize the settlement as a small village. It was named Carmelita in honor of the newly born daughters of one of the founders of the village, who had been christened Carmelita.
