Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is an island situated in the northeastern Caribbean Sea, its northern shore facing the Atlantic Ocean. Two small islands off the east coast, Vieques and Culebra, are administratively parts of Puerto Rico, as is Mona Island to the west. It lies approximately 50 miles east of the Dominican Republic, 40 miles west of the Virgin Islands, and 1,000 miles southeast of the U.S. state of Florida. Its governor is Pedro Pierluisi.

Puerto Rico, officially Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (or Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico in Spanish), is a self-governing island commonwealth of the West Indies associated with the USA.

Puerto Rico has a tropical climate with little seasonal variation, although local conditions vary according to elevation and exposure to rain-bearing winds. Plant life is abundant and varied. Tropical rainforests cover parts of the north side of the island. Puerto Rico has more than 200 species of birds, but land animals are mostly confined to nonpoisonous snakes, lizards, mongooses, and the coquí -a frog whose name is onomatopoeic with its call (“co-kee!”) and which has become a kind of national mascot.

In the early 16th century, Spanish explorers founded San Juan. The United States took possession of the island in 1898 until the mid-20th century. Puerto Ricans have been U.S. citizens since 1917, and can move freely between the island and the mainland; however, as residents of an unincorporated territory, American citizens in Puerto Rico are disenfranchised at the national level, do not vote for the president or vice president, and generally do not pay federal income tax.

Beginning in the mid 20th century, the U.S. government, together with the Puerto Rico Industrial Development Company, launched a series of economic projects to develop Puerto Rico into an industrial high-income economy.

6 Regions in Puerto Rico to Know Before Visiting

For an island spanning just over 9,000 square kilometers (3,500 sq. miles), Puerto Rico packs a punch. The island’s six unique regions comprise diverse topography and mesmerizing natural wonders that provide the exhilarating backdrop for once-in-a-lifetime adventures. Within just a few hours’ drive from vibrant San Juan, you can hike in a mystical cloud forest, surf the best waves in the Caribbean, experience rare bioluminescence, wander Taíno ruins and snorkel right offshore at some of the world’s best beaches. Fascinating cities engage history buffs and art lovers with beautifully restored colonial and neoclassical architecture, acclaimed museums and stirring street art.

Viejo, Old San Juan / Discover Puerto Rico


Founded in 1521 by Spanish settlers, Old San Juan showcases the best-preserved Spanish colonial architecture in the Caribbean. The oldest capital city in the U.S., two fortresses—Castillo San Felipe del Morro and Castillo de San Cristóbal—and evocative stone ramparts testify to 400 years of Spanish colonial rule. Along cobblestone streets, brightly painted colonial buildings and centuries-old landmarks nudge up against gourmet restaurants, hip art galleries, world-class museums and storied dance halls. Eclectic neighborhoods, palm-fringed beaches, and famed hospitality, San Juan always leaves visitors wanting more. To make sure to not miss out on the best parts this city has to offer, read our guide on best things to do in Old San Juan.

Playa Mar Chiquita / Chase Walker / Discover Puerto Rico


Defined by the jungle-cloaked limestone hills and caves of the Karst Region, the wild, rugged North Coast stretches from the white sand beaches of Dorado, just west of San Juan. Just south of the bustline city of Arecibo lies the region’s major crowd pleaser: Las Cavernas del Río Camuy, a gorgeous cave park featuring hikes through gigantic caverns. Between San Juan and Arecibo, there are two glorious beaches—Balneario Cerro Gordo (Vega Alta) and Playa Mar Chiquita (Manatí). In Utuado, you can explore one of the Antilles’ most important Taíno cultural sites, the Centro Ceremonial Indígena Caguana. At the northwest corner, Isabela’s white sand beaches, framed by dramatic rock formations and lush mountains, draw avid surfers, golfers, hikers and equestrians.

Yunque Rainforest / Discover Puerto Rico


The East Coast region is a perfect distillation of Puerto Rico’s natural wonders. Within a short drive you can experience seven of the island’s most important ecosystems. El Yunque rainforest offers extensive hiking trails, breathtaking views, cascading waterfalls and rare, endemic flora and fauna. The lesser known Las Cabezas Nature Reserve features mangrove swamp, offshore cays, coral reefs, freshwater lagoons and a rare bioluminescent bay. The Northeast Ecological Corridor preserves one of the largest leatherback turtle nesting sites in the U. S.. Unassuming Fajardo is the launchpad for superb sailing and snorkeling with a vibrant coral reef hosting a fantastical array of marine life. Offshore, Culebra and Vieques fulfill the tropical island fantasy with gorgeous beaches, calm azure waters and captivating interiors.

Isla de Mona / Omark Reyes / Discover Puerto Rico


Puerto Rico’s Northwest region draws sun seekers, nature lovers and watersports enthusiasts to its balmy beaches and surreal landscapes. The charming colonial cities of San Germán and Mayagüez are great bases for exploring the region with secluded beaches to the north and south and a handful of worthy cultural attractions. Fun-loving Aguadilla is the regional nexus with an international airport, family-friendly amenities and well-developed infrastructure. Low-key Rincón is famous for its surfing, holistic vibe and organic foodie culture. Isla Mona, some 80km (50 miles) offshore, is known as the Galápagos of the Caribbean. 

Los Morrillos Lighthouse Cabo Rojo / Beautiful Destinations / Discover Puerto Rico


The Southwest region of Puerto Rico combines indigenous history, a wealth of cultural attractions and bewitching natural wonders. As Puerto Rico’s second-largest city, Ponce lives up to its moniker as the “Pearl of the South.” Horse-drawn carriages clip clop along gas-lit streets lined with elegant neoclassical buildings. Home to the exceptional Museo de Arte de Ponce—the best art museum in the Caribbean—the city is a magnet for art lovers. Just outside Ponce, the Tibes Indigenous Ceremonial Center is the largest Taíno site in the Caribbean. Stretching from Guánica through Cabo Rojo are some of the island’s most alluring beaches, including Balneario de Boquerón, one of Puerto Rico’s prettiest public balnearios.

The main appeal of the Southwest Coast is the tranquil waters that allow for swimming and snorkeling right off the beach. The quiet coastal town of Parguera is best known for its bioluminescent bay where billions of luminescent plankton sparkle when they are disturbed by motion in the water.

Cordillera Central moutain range / Beautiful Destinations / Discover Puerto Rico

Cordillera Central

Puerto Rico’s largest mountain range, the Cordillera Central is a wonderland of dense jungle, soaring peaks, magical waterfalls, caves and canyons. An hour’s drive south of the capital, this central region is the epicenter for some of the Caribbean’s most unique adventure activities; hiking, rappelling, spelunking and ziplining. With coffee plantations, colonial haciendas and beautiful views, Jajuya shouldn’t be missed. In Guavate, La Ruta del Lechón provides the perfect initiation into one of Puerto Rico’s beloved national dishes, lechón, or roast suckling pig. La Ruta Panorámica is a well-traveled scenic tour through the region’s dramatic topography. At the center of the region, Bosque Estatal de Toro Negro features the island’s highest peak.

    Puerto Rico in Spanish means Wealthy Port is officially known as the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. This is the largest island territory that belongs to the United States and is located in the northeastern province of the Caribbean. San Juan is the capital and popular city and has Spanish as its official language along with English.

    The islands cultural, physical and ethnic took on a major transformation during the Spanish rule, which lasted for four centuries. United States after the Spanish-American War in 18


    The history of the island of Puerto Rico began with the resolution of the same archipelago by the Ortoiroid culture between 2000 and 3000BC. In 1492, when Christopher Columbus arrived on the island, the Taínos had a culture. Puerto Rico formed the bulk of the Spanish empire as it is located in the northeastern Caribbean. Cuba and Puerto Rico were the last two Spanish colonies in the New World. The first years of the 20th century are remembered for the struggle and war to win democratic rights from the US.


    The entire population of Puerto Rico was formed by Indians confinement, colonization of Europe, especially during the Spanish Empire, economic migration, and slavery. The inhabitants of the island before the first European contacts belonged to the Arawak group of Amerindians. Most of the immigrants included Catholics who came from France, Italy and Ireland.


    Puerto Rico has a tropical climate with moderate temperatures all year round. The trade winds from the East pass through the islands all year round and the rainy season extends from April — November. The mountains of the Cordillera cause significant changes in precipitation and temperature, as well as variations in wind speed and direction. About a quarter of Puerto Rico’s precipitation occurs during tropical cyclones.
