Palm trees. White sandy beaches. Lush rainforests. This beautiful Caribbean island is just waiting to be explored, and you'll find it displayed in all its tropical glory at this plentiful site. In addition to the scenery, we're talking major geographical, historical, and governmental details. Serious demographics. Loads of tourist information. It's everything you could possibly want to know about the people, places, and things of Puerto Rico, down to the charming little coqui frogs. Bananas, anyone?

Welcome to Puerto Rico offers an informative and elegantly designed introduction to the people and places of this Caribbean island. What is even more impressive is that the site is not the product of a tourist bureau or agency, but is the labor of love of the site's author, Magaly Rivera, a native of Puerto Rico. The site provides concise, detailed overviews of Puerto Rico's history, government, geography, economy, and culture, supplemented with numerous photographs. It also provides tourist information and details on each of Puerto Rico's municipalities. Welcome to Puerto Rico will make you, too, feel like a native.
