A Gringo who moved to Puerto Rico, Greg loves writing about the island he now resides on. He and Maria also wrote several bilingual books...

This is actually the thirteenth edition of Pueblos of Puerto Rico.

We are driving and taking pictures to give all of you a "virtual tour" of this wonderful Caribbean island that is part of the United States.

You don't need a passport. All citizens of Puerto Rico are American citizens too. Puerto Rico just may become the 51st State later this year.

Well, scroll down and travel with us. We will be visiting the Atlantic beachfront and moving inland to the mountains on this trip.

Below is a map showing our trip.

If you get an opportunity, I will say it would be well worth your time and money to visit. You will love Puerto Rico!

I hope you enjoyed this trip through some of Puerto Rico.

As with my latest hubs on these virtual tour; I am putting something from someone famous from one of the Pueblos listed. This time it is a man from Adjuntas; a great musician, Roque Navarro.
