InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Puerto Rico

Hello to all Americans in Puerto Rico! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Puerto Rico? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Puerto Rico which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Puerto Rico offers expats a vibrant cultural experience. The Caribbean paradise is a characterful city known for its rich history and culture, delicious cuisine, pristine beaches, central mountains, and much more! With the bus services, ferries, and road links, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Condado or Ocean Park, for example, which are just a car journey away from Puerto Rico’s center.

Although Puerto Rico has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Puerto Rico, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
