Puerto Rico Hotel Guide & Local Info
Puerto Rico is known as a Caribbean beach destination with plenty of outdoor activities including deep sea fishing, kayaking, scuba diving, and horseback riding. A popular beach attraction are the Bioluminescent bays in Puerto Rico where tiny microscopic organisms illuminate the bay and glow when they dart away from movement.
Puerto Rico is a well known cigar and rum-producing island along with many other hand made items which can be found in most San Jaun market areas throughout the city. San Juan has luxurious hotels with casinos much like Las Vegas and Reno in the United States.
Puerto Ricans were granted US citizenship in 1917. Popularly-elected governors have served since 1948. In 1952, a constitution was enacted providing for internal self government. In plebiscites held in 1967, 1993, and 1998, voters chose not to alter the existing political status with the US, but the results of a 2012 vote left open the possibility of American statehood.
