I just took a DNA test at 23andme and my results show Spanish & Portuguese. I have matches with a few 4th cousins and we share the same 3rd great grandparents and they also have great grandparents from Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico shows up at No. 8 my list of ancestor birthplaces are. Could this mean that my 3rd great grandparents are from Puerto Rico?

NO!. DNA doesn't tell you if your 3rd great grandparents lived in Puerto Rico. DNA can't even tell race because no one have a clue on how to define race biologically.

A trip to the island could help you discover new things from your ancestors. There are groups that can assist you to do research. It is a beautiful place and I am sure you can learn something about your roots.
