The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the United States, located in the northeastern Caribbean, east of the Dominican Republic and west of both the U.S. Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands. Puerto Rico comprises an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands, the largest of which are Vieques, Culebra, and Mona.
The United States Census Bureau estimates that the population of Puerto Rico was 3,706,690 on July 1, 2011 and is projected to reach 4,024,000 by 2015.
Puerto Rico has one of the most dynamic economies in the Caribbean region. The most populous city is the capital, San Juan, with approximately 395,326 people. Other major cities include Bayamón, Carolina, Ponce, and Caguas. Of the ten most populous cities on the island, eight are located within what is considered San Juan’s metropolitan area, while the other two are located in the south (Ponce) and west (Mayagüez) of the island.
The official languages of the executive branch of government of Puerto Rico are Spanish and English, with Spanish being the primary language.
U.S. Virgin Islands
The U.S. Virgin Islands consist of the main islands of St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas, along with the much smaller but historically distinct Water Island, and many other surrounding minor islands.
Covered with red-roofed buildings and houses, the capital city of Charlotte Amalie sits amidst lush green hills, and is widely considered the most beautiful port in the Caribbean.
Dizzying cruise-ship traffic and big resorts nibbling its edges make St. Thomas the most commercialized island.
St. John is the greenest island, literally and figuratively. It cloaks two-thirds of its area in parkland and sublime beaches, ripe for hiking and snorkeling. It also leads the way in environmental preservation, with limited development and several low-impact tent-resorts for lodging.
St. Croix is located far from its siblings and is offering a mix of rainforest, sugar plantations, and old forts.
As of the 2010 census there were 106,405 people (40, 648 households), residing in the territory.
