Till the middle of the XXth century Constanza was the valley with a small population, because of road absence.

In his report Baron de Eggers also wrote that all families occupying Constanza, was living at the expense of cultivation of horses, horned livestock, beeves, “batatas”, “yucas” (tipical dominican food) and corn. Also, tobacco was the main commercial culture. Tabacco was for selling in San Juan, where was a small cigar factory.
