This village derives its name from the word "yugu". "Yugu" means the frame placed over the neck of a carabao and harnessed to a cart. Yigo is the island's northernmost village. The soil is rich for coffee, cocoa, pineapples, oranges and tangerines, which grew in abundance before the war. This village also produced chocolates, which were then transported to Hagåtña where they were served to visitors in the Chocolate House of the Governor's palace. Yigo also has many Ifil wood trees, the hard wood used to make the yoke of the carabao and oftentimes the construction of the carabao cart.
