Five Good Reasons to Buy Land in Puerto Rico

Modular homes on Puerto Rico

Mobile homes for sale in Puerto Rico are selling like hotcakes at the moment, but the prices of mobile homes in Puerto Rico are not the only thing you should be considering. If you do want to move to PR, you should make that choice based on the land and its people. Here are 5 reasons mobile or modular homes in Puerto Rico might be a very good choice indeed.

  • There is so much to see and do in Puerto Rico, from the beaches on Culebra and the bioluminescent bay at Vieques to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old San Juan and the lush rainforest at El Yunque.

  • There is a lot to be said for living on a Caribbean island that is almost, but not quite, a US state. A dollar goes a lot farther there than in most of the rest of the country, but you are still protected by US laws.

  • There are some amazing tax incentives for moving to Puerto Rico or at least moving some of your investments there. As a result, mobile homes in Puerto Rico are very hot right now.

  • There are non-stop flights to PR from the US mainland several times a day, and the islands’ travel infrastructure is excellent. The airport is one of the best in the Caribbean.

  • It is a great place to live. The luxury lifestyle costs less in PR than it does nearly anywhere else in America, and the shopping is incredible.

A Mini History of Puerto Rico

A Mini History of Puerto Rico

Puerto Ricans are very proud of their heritage, and rightly so. These islands were probably first settled by a Taíno people called the Boricua, who referred to the main island as Borinquén. Many of today’s Puerto Rican cultural festivals, stories, and ways of life can be directly traced to the island’s Taíno past.

When Columbus landed on the island we would one day call Puerto Rico at the end of the 15th century, he re-named it San Juan Bautista. The island began to be referred to as “Puerto Rico” in the 1520s when “San Juan” was mainly used to refer to the island’s main port and largest city.

Puerto Rico became a US territory after the Spanish-American War. Congress passed the Foraker Act in 1900, establishing a US-led civil government there, and by 1917, the Jones-Shafroth Act had made all Puerto Ricans US citizens.

Today, Puerto Rico’s status falls just short of that of a US state. Puerto Ricans cannot vote for the President and are not represented in the federal congress, but there are movements towards making them a state in the works even now.  This is one of the reasons mobile homes for sale in Puerto Rico are becoming so popular – mobile and modular homes in Puerto Rico are likely to jump dramatically in value if the territory does officially become a state.

The Geography and Demographics of Puerto Rico

The Geography and Demographics of Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is part of an island chain. The islands of Puerto Rico, Mona, Culebra, and Vieques all form the territory of Puerto Rico. Some 3.2 million people live on the four islands, spread out over nearly 3,500 square miles of land. The main island is split into large coastal areas in the north and south, divided by the La Cordillera Central mountain range. More than 50 rivers flow down from these mountains, feeding more than 17 lakes.

With a population density of less than 1,000 per square mile, Puerto Rico is the 39th most densely populated US territory. It isn’t at all crowded, so mobile homes for sale in Puerto Rico go for very reasonable prices.

The port city of San Juan remains the largest settlement in the territory. Just under 400,000 people live there, making it the 46th largest city in the US. The second largest city, on the southern coast, is called Ponce. This is where the Government of Puerto Rico and most US Federal Government agencies are located. Of course, mobile homes in Puerto Rico near these cities go for premium rates.

Puerto Rico’s Climate and Weather

Puerto Rico’s Climate and Weather

The climate of most of the main island of Puerto Rico is that of a typical tropical rainforest. Daytime temperatures rarely drop below 84°F on lower land levels even in local winters, and temperatures stay around 70°F in the mountains all year round. The Atlantic hurricane season does affect all three islands, and this means insurance is a big factor for anyone looking at mobile homes for sale in Puerto Rico.
