Traditional Puerto Rican food is not spicy (hot) while newer foods and cooking styles vary quite a bit due to other nationalities moving to PR and bringing their cocina con ellos.

Pretty much what everyone have been saying. PR food isn't bland and though spices are used to season the food, it's almost never spicy. Every now and then you might find some pique bottle filled with homemade hot sauce. Although the pique IS spicy, it's not that much when compared with Mexican or Indian for example.

In the line of "Borikua", Puerto Rican food is very "spicy," which means it is very flavorful and full of condiment. Now, if by spicy you mean "hot," then certainly not. But Puerto Rico does produce it's "pique" (hot sauce) - you find it sold in rum flasks around the island.
