In 1725 the first European settlers built a town near the Guajataca River and named it San Antonio de la Tuna. The area was later abandoned until the early 1800's when it was resettled. Isabela was founded on May 21, 1819. and named in honor of Isabel Queen of Spain.

Isabela is located in the north-western region of the island, north of San Sebastián; west of Quebradillas; and east of Aguadilla and Moca. The annual precipitation is around 62.8 inches, and its average temperature is 84.7°F.

Tourism, industry, dairy products, livestock, leather goods and tobacco are the principal economic activities.
