Puerto Rico is a Caribbean island and unincorporated U.S. territory with a landscape of mountains, waterfalls and the El Yunque tropical rainforest. In San Juan, the capital and largest city, the Condado and Isla Verde areas are known for its hotels, beach bars and casinos. Its Old San Juan neighborhood features colorful Spanish colonial buildings and El Morro and La Fortaleza, massive, centuries-old fortresses.
The island’s official government name in English is the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, but it is not a true commonwealth. Puerto Rico has 78 municipalities, which are similar to counties in the United States.Puerto Rico’s mainland is about 37 miles long and 106 miles wide. With an area of more than 3,500 square miles, the island is about the size of Delaware and Rhode Island combined.
Puerto Rico has been shaped by the influences of multiple countries from around the globe. The result is a convergence of cultures that manifests in its food, music, architecture and lifestyle.
Tropical. Diverse. And welcoming, especially to the wealthy. In 2012, a law was passed to entice the well-heeled who meet bona fide residency requirements with tax incentives that include a 100 percent tax exemption on investment income from interest, dividends and capital gains. Yet, plenty of part-time vacation homeowners have found a slice of paradise in Puerto Rico with a host of other incentives. A Caribbean island that doesn’t require a passport for U.S. citizens is one. Average year-round temperatures in the low 80s is another. And then there is a real estate market as diverse as the culture where buyers can opt for Euro-cosmopolitan, bohemian chic or country club swank.
