  • The third part includes from L to Q.

Puerto Rico is a non-incorporated territory of the United States. Puerto Rico Does It Better is a campaign slogan used as a descriptive phrase about the magnificent wonders that the Island contains. The legacies from our Creator, indigenous people, and the conquerors to the details revealed in our history, are the producers of the offerings that enrich the fascinations of this piece of land in the world.
