Location of Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is the easternmost member of the archipelago of the Greater Antilles. The island country is an associated state of the United States of America. The main island is Puerto Rico, which has two important neighbouring islands, Vieques and Culebra, as well as other smaller islands. The biggest settlement is the capital, San Juan, which lies on the northern coast of the island of Puerto Rico. The area of the island is 9 104 km2 and has about 3 615 086 residents. Spanish and English are the official languages.

History of Puerto Rico

Christopher Columbo arrived in Puerto Rico in 1493. Originally, he named the island Bautista, but thanks to the gold of the river they soon started calling it “rich port”. The Spanish settlers owned Puerto Rico, and the island became an important military outpost. They brought slaves to the island imported from Africa, who worked on the tobacco and sugar cane plantations. As a result, the bloodline and culture of the islands is a combination of Spanish, African, and indigenous Taíno and Caribbean Indians. Over the years the French and the Dutch have several failed attempts to conquer the country. As protection from such invasions, the Spaniards built many fortresses and castles. According to the treaty of Paris in 1898 Spain let through Puerto Rico to the United States.

From the 20th Century

After the turn of the century, the dominance of the USA functioned in the area, but they established a very stable economy. Cheap labour and favourable taxing laws attracted American companies and soon Puerto Rico’s economy laid the foundations of manufacture and tourism. In 1917 the country was officially part of the Commonwealth of the US, but the question of its political status is still a subject of constant debate. Spanish and English are the official languages. The home currency is the American dollar.

Beaches in Puerto Rico

The island is a perfect site for beach lovers. It has hundreds of beaches with crystal clear water. Each of them has its own, unique characteristics.

San Juan & Metro:

San Juan and Isla Verde are among the most visited beaches on the island. One of the main reasons for this is marketing since the best coastal holiday resorts are in these districts. While the beaches of San Juan and Metro are not the most outstanding in Puerto Rico they are the most popular tourist destinations for several reasons. Those who would like to spend a weekend near San Juan, Isla Verde, Dorado és Rio Grande are in a convenient distance of the airport and can find excellent hotel options. Visitors can get to know the joy of a large tropical seacoast, bustling nightlife, and several water sports.

Condado beach:

Condado is a very popular beach among the tourists of San Juan. It’s ideal either for those who wish to relax in a Caribbean coastal resort, and those who’d rather engage in the downtown milling. The city centre is only a few steps from the beach. They often compare Condado to the atmosphere of Miami Beach because of the cultural sights, nearby beaches, and world-class attractions.

La Posita beach:

Spend a great day on the La Posita beach a short drive from San Juan and only a few minutes away from Isla Verde. It’s a long beach on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean with few visitors. The coral-stone wall created a long, shallow pool, sheltered from strong waves. This large beach is truly ideal for families with small children or those who wish to swim in calm waters.

Main sights in Puerto Rico

You can find a wide range of programs on the island of Puerto Rico. Adventurers can explore the underground caves of Río Camuy Cave Park or the 500-year-old walls of the El Morro fortress. Lovers of the beach must visit the western beaches of Rio, where boating and surfing are almost inevitable programs. Lovers of the city will surely enjoy the milling nightlife and bustling entertainment, along with the excellent dining opportunities and the best shopping centres in the Caribbean region.
