Should I move to Puerto Rico?
If you're searching for a change of pace - a destination with white sand beaches, rain forests, beautiful mountains, year-round sunshine and a diverse culture - moving to Puerto Rico may be at the top of your list. And why wouldn't it be? It's the "Island of Enchantment", a tropical paradise. Let’s look at a few things that make moving to Puerto Rico a great choice!

Puerto Rico Weather. Puerto Rico has amazing weather that will allow you to enjoy all the island has to offer. With an average temperature of 83 degrees, you can stroll along the beach, play sports, or just sit outside and watch the native birds just about year-round.

Puerto Rican Culture and Cuisine. Offering a unique mix of cultures, Puerto Rico combines African, Spanish, Amerindian, and American cultures. From the music, to the cuisine, to sports, the unique culture can be seen in every facet of life. The local cuisine is called cocina criolla, and it utilizes many herbs, beans, and distinctive flavors. One special local dish is called mofongo. Don’t worry, it isn’t as crazy as it sounds! Mofongo is a mash or fried plantains or yucca with seasonings and pork cracklings. It is usually served with meat and broth. A favorite drink is Aljonjoli, a sweetened, spiced milk drink made from coconut milk, sesame seeds, vanilla and cinnamon. You will also have to try piragua, a frozen shaved ice treat made with fruit flavored syrup. Hungry yet? You will have so much to try after moving to Puerto Rico!

Sports in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is known for great athletes and a great athletic spirit. With the American influence, Puerto Ricans love basketball, football, and baseball. There are many football leagues, from peewee to semi-pro. Baseball is very popular with over 100 MLB players hailing from Puerto Rico. There is a national basketball league, the BSN, with men’s and women’s leagues. Professional boxing and wrestling are also popular. There is a FIFA soccer team for your enjoyment, as well as horse racing. And don’t forget about volleyball. The Puerto Rico Volleyball Federation has many different games and events for you to watch or get involved in.

Education in Puerto Rico. The University of Puerto Rico is the largest and most academically diverse institute with over 64,000 students. There are several other smaller institutions as well, so no matter what you are seeking to study after moving to Puerto Rico, there will be plenty of opportunities.

Moving to Puerto Rico – how to get there?

You can’t exactly drive a rental truck to Puerto Rico. While it is a U.S. Territory, so there is no customs fee to mess with, the ocean gets in the way. So how do you move to Puerto Rico? Some companies can move you there, but you will pay expensive rates and have long wait times for your items. Is there a better option? Check out U-Pack.
