Puerto Rico



Reference: Author: Wikipedia Available at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puerto_rico


Puerto Rico (/ˌpɔrtə ˈriːkoʊ/ or /ˌpwɛərtə ˈriːkoʊ/),[note 1] officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, [esˈtaðo ˈlibɾe asoˈsjaðo ðe ˈpweɾto ˈriko]—literally, "Associated Free State of Puerto Rico"), is an unincorporated territory of the United States, located in the northeastern Caribbean, east of the Dominican Republic and west of both the United States Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands.
Puerto Rico (Spanish for "rich port") comprises an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands, the largest of which are Vieques, Culebra, and Mona. The main island of Puerto Rico is the smallest by land area of the Greater Antilles. However, it ranks third in population among that group of four islands, which also include Cuba, Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti), and Jamaica. Due to its location, Puerto Rico enjoys a tropical climate and also experiences the Atlantic hurricane season.

Some great shots of San Juan & Carolina etc. Love Green Island airport - looks massive.

Best thing about San Juan is the european history, really craps all over Australia. Thanks for sharing.

I've just read The Rum Diaries (haven't seen the film yet). Made me want to go to Puerto Rico. Those pics of Old San Juan remind me of Havana, albeit better kept. I imagine Cuba would be like PR if the US got it hands on it.
