Puerto Rico Real Estate
Puerto Rico is different from any other community in which you have ever lived. The principal differences include the culture, the Spanish language and the incomparable weather.
While Puerto Rico is a part of the United States, its culture and social mores are charmingly Spanish. As a matter of fact, Puerto Rico is the oldest community under the American flag. San Juan, its capital city, was founded in 1521, 40 years before the first settlement in the United States, St. Augustine, Florida.
The Island became part of the United States in 1898. In 1952 the people of Puerto Rico overwhelmingly voted for permanent union with the United States as a freely associated State or Commonwealth. Over the years, Puerto Rico has grown and developed into a truly modern and cosmopolitan community, blending the best aspects of American drive and imagination with the warmth and cultural heritage the Spanish left behind.
Today, the Puerto Rican is an American citizen, but has no voting representation in the USA, and therefore pays no Federal income taxes. He has high regards for the social mix of his Spanish and American backgrounds.
Recreational opportunities abound in Puerto Rico. The best orientation on what to do is provided by the Tourist Development Company's official brochure called "Que Pasa" (What's Happening). It is issued every three months and is the best guide to restaurants, shopping, sports, sightseeing and transportation...
