People tend to sleep on the depth and beauty of Puerto Rico. Though the island is considered a U.S. territory, Puerto Rico is far from American, and if you ever forget, the country’s proud people are quick to remind you. Don’t get it twisted!
The vibrant island has a distinct vibe, which is the result of a mashup of cultures–African, Spanish, French, Dutch and British blood pumps through the veins of the islands’ diverse population. The moment you land in Puerto Rico, the spirit of the island will move you and fill you with a feeling you won’t find anywhere else. From the swaying of the trees and the sound of the ocean, to the smell of fresh mofongo and the resilient voices of the people, all of this and more will make you feel right at home.
