PR is very "westernized". There are Starbucks everywhere, Chili's, Macaroni Grill, Johnny Rockets...just to name a few. I'm surprised when I read negative remarks about PR. I suppose not every place is for everybody...which is fine. I have loved exploring the island over the past year. My fav places to date are Rincon, Culebra and Vieques. Personally, I think that vacationers that leave here without having had a good time most likely lack the ambition to seek adventure or are just not meant to vacation in a "tropical" environment. This is a beautiful island with beautiful people.

Do you live in the San Juan area? Ponce has a Chili's but no Starbucks, Macaroni Grill or Johnny Rockets.

I live on the east coast of PR...Humacao. I do most of my shopping in Caguas or San Juan which has many American restaurants. I've never been to Ponce...my husband has. How long have you lived here in PR?

There are indeed many food-chain food establishments in operation in PR. However, there are plenty of unique and individual restaurants. This is true also for other type of shop types. For instance, I have seen a number of home-improvement type places that are locally operated. There are excellent places to get car parts from, etc.

Puerto Rico is tropical. South Florida is NOT.


There is a fact for you.

We always celebrate American holidays, and know really good English.

And how do I show appreciation for my citizenship? I joined the navy; my dad was a marine, my brother is one too, and most uncles and cousins from my mother's side joined the military by themselves (despite that the older relatives were drafted). Believe it or not, Puerto Rican people do appreciate the citizenship.
