FACTS ABOUT PUERTO RICANS

Puerto Ricans (Spanish: Puertorriqueños; Taíno: Boricua) are the inhabitants or citizens of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is a multi-ethnic nation, home to people of different ethnic and national backgrounds. As a result, some Puerto Ricans do not treat their nationality as an ethnicity but as a citizenship with various ethnicities and national origins comprising the “Puerto Rican people”.

Despite its multi-ethnic composition, the culture held in common by most Puerto Ricans is referred to as mainstream Puerto Rican culture, a Western culture largely derived from the traditions of Western European migrants, beginning with the early Spanish settlers, along with other Europeans arriving later such as the Corsicans Irish, Germans and French, along with a strong West African culture which has been influential.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

PUERTO RICO FROM THE AIR

I found this page browsing through Facebook.

The accompanying video was presented as a thank you and recognition for continued visits and views to their page.

I can not begin to say how proud this makes me!

I feel nostalgic for my country.

I haven’t been back for a few years.

I go back home through the awesome videos this page.

I even see places that I have never been to or even knew that existed in my own country.

This is an amazing job that the ones presenting and administering this page ad their own website are doing.

It means a lot to those of us who are away from home.

My country is so beautiful.

It’s the “Pearl of the Caribbean” (“Perla Del Caribe”).

It doesn’t matter the hardships that it’s going through now. The spirit of the people is still there.

Their kindness, their knowledge, their love .. they are all there.

I’m so proud to be a Puerto Rican!!

I invite you to take a trip with me.

Puerto Rico, officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, literally the “Free Associated State of Puerto Rico”), is a United States territory located in the northeastern Caribbean.

Puerto Rico is an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands. The capital and largest city isSan Juan. The territory does not observe daylight saving time, and its official languages are Spanish, which is predominant, and English. The island’s population is approximately 3.6 million.

Puerto Rico’s rich history, tropical climate, diverse natural scenery and renowned traditional cuisine make it a popular destination for visitors from around the world. Its location in the Caribbean, combined with centuries of colonization and subsequent migration, has made Puerto Rican culture a distinct melting pot of Amerindian, Spanish, African and North American influences.
