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...

I have made a series of hubs giving all of you a virtual tour of Puerto Rico. If you search my hubs you will find them. Those hubs include several pueblos in them. This hub will be on just one pueblo; San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico.

I have found this island to be a paradise in many ways. Even though I don't know Spanish, English is a second language here and many natives speak English quite well. English is taught in the school system here and this year, the people will vote on whether Puerto Rico will become the 51st State of the United States of America.

My beautiful wife, Lastheart and I have been driving and taking pictures to give all of you a feel and taste of Puerto Rico. I would strongly recommend a vacation to this wonderful island. There are beautiful beaches, great food and a rain forest too. You won't be disappointed!

Check out some of these photographs and then I will explain San Juan, Puerto Rico.

San Juan

San Juan was founded in 1521 by Spanish colonists. It is the most populated city in Puerto Rico. The 2010 census said the population is 395,326.

San Juan's nickname is La Ciudad Amurallada or The Walled City. San Juan is named for John the Baptist.

The mayor of San Juan is: Jorge A. Santini Padilla (PNP)

San Juan has many "barrios" or districts. They include:

  1. Caimito
  2. Cupey
  3. El Cinco
  4. Gobernador Piñero
  5. Hato Rey Central
  6. Hato Rey Norte
  7. Hato Rey Sur
  8. Monacillo
  9. Monacillo Urbano
  10. Oriente
  11. Pueblo
  12. Quebrada Arenas
  13. Rio Piedras
  14. Sabana Llana Norte
  15. Sabana Llana Sur
  16. Old San Juan
  17. Santurce
  18. Tortugo
  19. Universidad

There is so much to see and do within San Juan alone. A person could go a lifetime without experiencing all San Juan has to offer.

Here are more pictures and a video I found.

I may try to develop my own video to add here when I can.

So when are you gonna get tickets? Come and experience Puerto Rico; you will love it!

Conclusion

As you can see there is a lot of beauty. No snow and ice but it does rain quite a bit. The rain is warm and usually is not for long periods.

Yep, I moved to paradise.
