Poinciana is one of the fastest growing areas in Central Florida. A settlement with a vibrant Latino culture, Poinciana is often referred to as “Little Puerto Rico.” Annual festivals and events celebrating Hispanic heritage—like the Hispanic Cultural Festival and Cuban Sandwich Festival—breathe life into an otherwise quiet area.
More than half the households in Poinciana have children. This family-friendly locale is only a short drive from Central Florida’s most popular theme parks. For those who enjoy the outdoors, Poinciana is tucked between Lake Tohopekaliga; the Disney Wildlife Preserve; and Lake Marion Creek, 8,000 acres of protected, wooded swampland with hiking trails, fishing, and abundant wildlife.
The southern terminus of the SunRail system is in Poinciana, allowing residents easy access by train to Downtown Orlando, Winter Park, and Sanford. The area has an abundance of schools, including a Valencia College campus that opened in 2017. Those who enjoy peaceful, family-oriented communities with easy access to both urban centers and natural landscapes will find Poinciana the perfect place to establish roots.
