About Puerto Rico

What is Puerto Rico? Is it part of the United States is it a country? Not many people really know. It is a bit confusing: technically Puerto Rico it is a territory of the USA, but it is not one of the states. The spirit of the Puerto Rico is very independent, however.

The travel hot spot of the island is the capital of San juan. It is a modern city with ancient roots and lots of sights that date back hunderds of years. Many people do not care to venture any further. This is too bad. The rest of the island offers many beautiful places, great hiking opportunities and old colonial plaza's.

Other places of interest include Ponce and the Parque of El yunque.
