About Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is a Caribbean island between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, east of the Dominican Republic (about 1,000 miles/1,600 km southeast of Miami, Florida).  The Island does not require US residents to have a passport making Puerto Rico weddings and honeymoons very popular.

CALLING PUERTO RICO – Puerto Rico has modern, reliable United States style telephone services (area code 787).

COMMUNICATIONS – U.S. by high capacity submarine cable and INTELSAT with high-speed data capability; digital telephone system with about 1 million lines; cellular telephone service; broadcast stations – 50 AM, 63 FM, 9 TV; cable television carries all four major U.S. networks.

DRINKING WATER – Puerto Rico’s water quality is subject to the same regulated EPA standards that apply on the U.S. mainland.

ELECTRICITY – The general rule in Puerto Rico is United Standards 110 and 120 volts AC, and the outlets take the same two-prong plugs found in the United States.

WHAT TO WEAR – Puerto Ricans are a gentle and friendly people. The island feels more like Latin America than the United States.

There are no nudist facilities (camps and/or beaches) in Puerto Rico since nudism is illegal.
