Facts You Need to Know to Move to: Puerto Rico
Earnings for PR
There is a big difference between average earnings in San Juan (The capital) and the rest of PR. This can also be said for the average earnings of genders. A woman in San Juan makes an average of $22,729 a year. Men have an earning average 1.1 % higher than women at $29,606 a year. Now for the rest of PR, the average is slightly less, at $24,486 for women, and $23,711 for men. Very surprising! Most of the time, men make much more than women. Now just in case you were wondering, because PR is a Commonwealth of the U.S.A. it uses the American dollar.
This section will be about the immigration laws for PR. It is very easy to become a citizen of PR, so read this to learn how.
To become a Citizen of PR, is easier than most states of the U.S.A. The average time it takes is about 6 to 12 months. To qualify, you must not have been a resident for 15 years already, and must reside there for 183 days a year at least. You also must fill out the papers for tax authority, because there are no taxes in PR.
Why is this article getting made?
The reason I'm making this article is that PR day was canceled because of coronavirus, and so I wanted to write a series of articles for moving to the places of the Caribbean, and South America.
Once again, being in a city does affect the price of living. In San Juan a one-bedroom apartment average is $500. Outside the big cities though, it is about $388 a month. For a three-bedroom apartment in the city, it is about $816, and outside of cities is about $600. Next is bills: How much are they? For the basic bills (Electricity, Heating, Cooling, Water, Garbage), it is all together about $203.03. For internet bills (60 Mbps or More, Unlimited Data, Cable/ADSL) is $64.09.

Dangers of living in PR
First, the most dangerous thing I think that is here in PR, is hurricanes. Hurricane Irma and Maria destroyed PR, back in 2017. Many people died, and many peoples houses got destroyed, like my families home. Many Puerto Ricans came to the U.S.A. because PR was destroyed. That could happen again, but they are making stronger houses so something that devastating happens again. Second, PR like all places, has crime. In the tourist areas it is relatively safe. But if you go to more rural areas, again like any other place, can be dangerous.
The people of PR have LOTS of history and amazing culture, especially the food. All the food is very good, and surprisingly cheap! Including rice, chicken, and pork.
