I'ver seen Puerto Ricans, but they are of Catalan extraction. Also some in Majorca, as immigration to PR was very important from those islands. I once met Rosselló there casually.

If a Puerto Rican moves to the mainland, that person is eligible to vote for the president.

As far as North Americans, you can meet them all over Europe as expats or tourists.

The Caribbean people are mostly found in the UK, Netherlands, France and some in Spain, Based on language respectively so Jamaicans in the UK, Martinicans in France, Cubans and Dominicans in Spain, Arubans in Netherlands. Respective to the colonial links they have.

In regards to Central Americans there are some Mexicans and central American But not many, They live mostly in the United States.

As for Puerto Ricans, I have never seen any Puerto Rican in Europe.
Unless they introduced themselves to you and told you they were Puerto Rican, how would you know?

I'm from Spain and I've never met people from Puerto Rico here, and I don't live in the rural countryside, but in a commuter town located 60 km away from Madrid city centre.

As for Puerto Ricans, I have never seen any Puerto Rican in Europe.
A lot of Europeans settled in South America in the 20th century due to the aftermath of WWI, WWII,and the Spanish civil war.

Many South Americans are of Italian descent or part Italian. Many of them do get Italian citizenship and are in Italy, Spain, Portugal, or other European countries.

A lot of Brazilians and other South Americans go to Portugal.

Some go to England.

As for Puerto Ricans, yes, a few do come to Spain or Europe. Not nearly as common as the other groups, but they are here.

Well, I am a Puerto Rican- American who studied in Italy. Graduated last year. As of now, I want to improve on practicing new languages and self-development, so I am still living in Italy. Europe is certainly a different culture and I can understand why I have not met any Puerto Ricans over here. Also, the culture is not like Puerto Rico and this is something I am struggling with living here. Do I plan to stay abroad for the rest of my life? No. Do I miss the open-minded culture in the USA? Definitely. There are many advantages living in the U.S. especially the disadvantages. My experience living in Italy has been awfully stressful because many people are not open-minded. It is very emotionally taxing BUT I learn a lot from this part of experience in my life.

This fact isn't tied to being Puerto Rican. If a statesider lives in PR or the USVI they cannot vote in Federal elections. The minute that a Puerto Rican or a USVI person moves to the mainland they can vote in Federal elections.


People whose income is derived from PR/USVI don't pay federal income taxes. The equivalent due is paid to the local authorities in lieu of this. A NYer must pay federal, state AND local income taxes.
