What? I have never heard of that. One of my close friends is a Californian from Mexico.

We are both from CA (me from SF, him from LA) and I am a Gringo and he is Mexican and he has never had any problem here . He loves it. We both do. But we also both live in San Juan, go to University here and have firends from all over.

Puerto Ricans are very open minded and liberal. It is so much different then I thought it would be. And very few smoke which is an added bonus.

I guess it may depend on who you meet and hang around with but in academia it is most certainly NOT a problem.

Thing is though that kind of Mexican vs Boricua animosity doesn't exist in Puerto Rico. That only happens in NYC and Chicago

Really?? Is it mandatory that he disclose his heritage, or do all Mexican people look and sound alike? I'm willing to bet not. And are all Puerto Rican people waiting around for foreigners to antagonize? This sounds more like short-sighted gang mentality. I hope I'm wrong though.

Where I grew up in PR we had a mexican family from Aguas Calientes as neighbors no issues. When I went to college in PR we had many Mexican students attending with no issues at all. I worked with many mexicans on various projects in PR with no problem. Having traveled a lot and now in the military living in Chicago I can see how the perception is still there that puertoricans and mexicans have bad blood but perception is not reality.

There are many mexicans living in PR you usually don't seem them as much as other foreigners like spaniards, argentinians, brazilians, Dominicans and Cubans but their are enough of them for the Mexican government to have a consulate on the island, that's not counting the ones that come from the states.

Nope he is being 100% honest. Don't go there unless you want your husband to be insulted and possible harassed. However, it probably happens in reverse in the Southwest state to Puerto ricans and Caribbean people so it goes both ways.

Their is not many Mexicans living in Puerto Rico. It is probably less than 10,000 out of a population of 4 Million. It is not a destination most Mexicans want to live.

Most off the time it is just fighting because their are not many Mexican and Puerto rican couples. It is rare and when they do happen it usually ends in divorce. Just to many differences.

It is not common at all. It is very rare couple combination and like I said before it usually ends in failure because of differences. You may meet like a Mexican Puerto Rican couple like every now and then but it is very uncommon especially in the Southwest. It probably uncommon in the Northeast and Southeast as well. I really don't know where this would be common. Even in Puerto Rico it is not common and we know in Mexico it is not common. LOL Where are the Mexi-Rican couples if their are some and what is the ratio? 1 in every 10,000 couples. 1 Mexican Rican couple for every 10,000 Mexican couples or greater?
