As a tourist, I think that Miami and Florida gets much more humid and hot for a longer period of the year than San Juan. This puts San Juan ahead of Miami in my books. As a provider, if you have a job and a predictable income then life anywhere can be good.

A general observation, I wrote in some post somewhere on this forum. One should not be misguided about the realities of PR, it is a much less of state than Florida so you are going to see more poverty. If one is bothered by such things then their experience of PR will obviously reflect these feelings. It is therefore important to look through the economical disparities and see PR for what it is and for what it can be. Miami, and in general being in the main-land USA, provides opportunities that cannot be matched by these in PR, and since the needs are individual specific the decision to which one is a better choice is a difficult one to make.

Keep in mind that 65K means like a 100K in SJU, Miami its way too expensive now. Go to SJU and if you miss Miami, you can get there for less than $200 from San Juan. Good Luck!

Good luck, but both cities are dangerous. In either one you will need eyes in the back of your head to watch out for street thugs.

I'm pretty sure that the OP made his decision by now. This thread is over three years old.
