Welcome to Living in Puerto Rico, a website with everything you need to know about travel, moving to Puerto Rico and enjoying the magic this beautiful island has to offer.

You might be wondering:

Why did we create Living in Puerto Rico?

We started Living in Puerto Rico to help people like ourselves, who moved from the U.S. to make Puerto Rico our home, make their way through the process. Along the way, we are happy to share our travel experiences, insider tips and insight.

During our move, we found the lack of information online was frustrating and often misleading. Simple things like shopping, finding a restaurant and using GPS were difficult. After buying a car, applying for Tax Act 20 & Tax Act 22 status, starting a new business and hiring employees, we feel we’ve been through a lot!

Within 6 months of moving to Puerto Rico, we moved 3 times (with a toddler, cat and dog in tow). We learned a lot along the way, and eventually settled in an amazing spot on the East coast: Palmas Del Mar.

Now we have a great routine, amazing new friends and are part of a community we love. Puerto Rico is growing in many ways and we are so EXCITED to be a part of it.
