Hi prim girls,
Be prepared this is a long post full of pictures....... Probably you are dreaming with a spring or summer temps, if you said yes....continue reading this post. I will give you an eye candy with temps around 80's all year. Today, I will talk about geography(LOL) and one of the US territorries in the Caribbean...... Puerto Rico, my island. I am pretty sure that the most of you know about it, or the name sounds familiar. PR is a little paradise in the Caribbean that you could access by air, in a cruise, obviously if you had your own yacht you can access it too, Ha, ha, ha.
Puerto Rico, officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, is a self -governing unincorporated territory of United States located in the northeastern Caribbean Sea, east of the Dominican Republic and west of the Virgin Islands. The main island of Puerto Rico is the smallest by land area among the four Greater Antilles, which also include Cuba, Hispaniola and Jamaica. Puerto Rico's head of state is the President of the United States. The island is also popularly known as "La Isla del Encanto", which translated means "The Island of Enchantment." People born in Puerto Rico are US Citizens.PR consists of the main island of Puerto Rico and various smaller islands.
Mostly mountainous with large coastal areas in the north and south. Located in the tropics, Puerto Rico has an average temperature of 82.4 °F (30 °C) throughout the year, temps do not change drastically throughout the seasons. The official languages are Spanish and English with Spanish being the primary language. English is taught as a second language in public and private schools from elementary levels to high school and in universities. Our currency is USD (United States Dollar).
If you visit Puerto Rico and explore the island you will see places like this ....
La Concha Resort in San Juan ( our capital)
Old San Juan,
On the tip of Old San Juan, (our capital), you'll find Fort San Felipe del Morro, better known as El Morro. A 16th century citadel constructed to protect the town from attack by sea, El Morro is one of the highlights of any tour of the old city, a rocky web of tunnels and barracks, towers and prisons. Probably the most famous monument from Spanish colonial times, the fortress stands out on a rocky islet, forever a reminder of a different age.Hotel El Convento ( see hotel images and other Old San Juan tourist attractions in the city)
