Puerto Rico Sucks

Well, I tell you why most other True Latin, or Hispanic people hate puerto rico, and American, so called Puerto rican's Rican's ( they should call themselves BlackAicans or Africaricans because that's what they strive for, practicing that Santeria, which is another name for African Voodoo)), sorry I meant Puerto Rican's (I had to make a distinction, because some puerto rican's from puerto rico don't try to be black, and disrespect other truer Latin's, Hispanic's that are of truer blood like the filthy one's that reside here.) It's because they are a bunch of A- Holes that think they are better than other Latin races because they intermarry with black's. Don't they realize that they have no race anymore? They are not even Meztizo or Mulato. They just F anyone because they have no sense of identity, and no real government unlike most Latin countries, we have real government's. We are smart enough to control our countries. I guess they are just happy doing, "perico" and f-ing girl's and guy's in their anus like they so popular for( refer to their hit song , Ella quiere mas gasolina by that piece of shiss Daddy Yankey, that is a sodomite song). F- puerto rican slime.

Anglo here. I've travelled all over the Carribean and the US abd Europe. The negative comments here apply to just about every poor section of any metropolis. If you have enough money to kick it in Vega Baja, Dorado or the resorts, or the nice parts of any of the towns, the best PR has to offer will rival anything on any other US or Carribean town. By way of example, lets talk about St. Thomas. Same issue with littering in bad sections, and same mentality of living off handouts. I love PR and spend at least 6 weeks there per year. I help clean up litter I see everywhere I go - and that includes Chicago, Miami and NYC. By the way / people in these cities litter just as much. It's just that PR lacks the funding to clean it all up.

I never seen people living like savages like this. Was totally surprised upon arrival. This place is filled with trash, lazy people, and horrible food. I wonder how people can live like this. No standards, eat next to urine scented air, trash filled streets, sticky and musty restaurants.

The tourist trap Condado Beach area is just plain expensive, sleazy, and disgusting. What an absolute waist of money and vacation time.

Puerto Ricans need to clean up their country, have some standards higher than their dogs and stop with the attitudes.

Im a puerto rican, and I agree, but not all puerto ricans are to blame. Think of it like Detroit. It also a big drug and immigration point. It needs some cleansing

It is a real crap hole here. My wife and I had to move here for work, but we are almost free. It is a US territory, but you would swear you were in any other politically corrupt, Latin American country.
The whole "You don't need a passport" campaign is a joke. I consistently tell my friends and family to take the time and money to just get a passport and go to Mexico. It is cheaper there, and you know what to expect. The only difference between this place and Mexico is the food is worse here and the prices are higher than the US. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, their drug addicted criminals don't just kill each other (like in Mexico). Here they kill pregnant tourists as well.
I like puerto rican food and da bitches too

You should have visited others parts of the country, staying only in the metropolitan area is just plain stupid.

I was in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 2012 and enjoyed it so much. We went to Ponce and loved that. There are many other places I would love to visit. Yes, there is traffic but the cab fees are not expensive nor are the bus fees. I would go back.

Puerto ricans are the bane of America. They destroy everything they come near. They appear to be a cursed race of people. Read the book La Vida, its history says Puerto Ricans have been existing in filth and poverty for hundreds of years. They have perfected being "pigs". They are professional slobs spreading aids and enlarging every ghetto boundary. They dispise whites and are mentally ill with jealousy, yet are too lazy to change or to work for what they need or want. They'd rather steal it or kill somebody for it.

I have never seen so many ugly people in such a small island. They fell off the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.. I got fed up with that dump and left never to return.

You people need to quit bashing puerto Rico and puerto ricans. That applies to Rodney and desdamona. I love puerto rican people. I don't know if that's my pr side or not? Either way stop talking trash. Its not nice

I know I will be getting a lot of heat from my countryman but I'm ok with it. But the thruth is what it is-the thruth. There are those who become upset when other point out how messed up the island is. This a double sided edge. See, there are those who get upset because it is a shame our island came to this point and have to face the criticism and no able to respond with a valid argument. And there are those who get upset when they hear how f/u the island isand they respond with incoherent arguments: 'well go back to the us' 'in the us is the same' 'you fu.... this or that'. Well, those are the ones with the problems not accepting what it is and sometimes are pary of the problem but are not willing to stop for a moment what can they do to make the island a better place to live. So anyway, I want to be as clear and accurate as possible without exagerating. FACT: was born in this island in the mid sixties, so I've seen through decades how PR has decayed, especially moraly and culturally.

FACT: the roads are the worst I have ever seen. Most don't have lane lines so you don't know what lane are you on. The majority don't know how to drive. Sorry, they don't! How can some people yell at you in an intersection when you got there first but they kept goin when there was a stop sign in their corner? On the highway, forget about it!: two lanes, max speed 65, and the driver is doing 35 on the left lane refusing to move right. A lot of them drive between the two lanes. FACT: they don't know how to wait in line like a civilized human being: if you are on the line to pay your toll and there is a long line of cars, expect someone come from way back trying to cut in-but if you don't let them in they will get pissed at you and insult you because you know...you're supposed to let them cut in despite you have been waiting more than 15 min. Ah! dont't expect a thank you gesture either! So if you don't believe me, look at all the cars, old and new-they will have some sort of scuff mark or dents. FACT: I hate when waiting in the cashiers line, there is someone behind me not farther than five inches breathing on my neck. I just dont know what is- is it because they're trying to use mind power to get thete as fast as they can, or because the island is so small they feel that there is no room for everybody? FACT: Customer service is the worst at it's best. They think they're doing you a favor when you buy from them. Some of them won't even look at you throught the entire transaction. On some local restaurants you will wait a while before being serve and no free refills by the way (Rest. Hecho en Puerto Rico). Telephone, utilities, any government errand- good luck! If you're planning to go to the doctor, be aware you WILL be the entire day there. An if that happens in a gov. agency, pray they see you before close of business- they will tell you to comback tomorrow. To sum it up: don't expect good customer service unless you go to Costco or Applebees. FACT: People are rude. Yes, you read it right: rude. If you are in store, lets say, Walmart, and you are in a isle looking for something don't expect an 'excuse me, thank you'. They will either move right and left to pass by or they just pass no matter what bumping into you- don't expect an apology so lower your expectations. And on traffic? Don't take me there!

FACT: Yes, is true: PR has some of the best beaches I have ever seen. Famenco beach is on the ten beaches. But a lot from the sames who claim 'yo soy Boricua' have trash those beaches. So if you decide to go to a beach, we are sandals or any beach footwear. After weekends you'll see tons of trash that if you are not from here you will say "how is this happening to such a beautiful island?" They just don't care, plain and simple. There is trash anywhere you go: on the sides of the roads because they are too lazy to call the city govt. for pick up or to take it to a land fill. On houses you'll see junked cars that will tell you they've been there since the sixties because of the model and the lime that covers it. To sum it up: they don't take pride and love they claim they have to keep the island clean. FACT: If you live in a well to do neighborhood, be aware that if you contract someone or a native company, they will try to charge you higher than normal, not to mention they will do a crappy work. Be also on the lookout for strange behavior like looking around to see what you have (I don't know why). FACT: Neighbors. Oh God! Don't tell anyone about your whereabouts, how much you make, what you do for a living, hobbies, etc. NOTHING! It will spread out like wild fire through the neighborhood before you know it. And if you have no luck at all, most probably you'll get a loud neighbor. But if you're patient enough, you will be able to to tune out-so be patient. Speaking of loud neighbors, I live in a so so well to do area; professionals, doctors, FBI, etc. The other day I decided to smoke a cigar in my open garage after a long day and all of the sudden, my neighbors truck (which he washes three times a week) blasting Z93, a house alarm going off and a hound dog barking without end. Finally I gave up, put the cigar out and said fu% this and went inside. So many people say 'well, in the states you dont see your neighbors, everyone is to themselves. They are always inside the buildings etc etc.' Well, I rather live like that-you mind your business, I mind mine. Almost forgot: if you are in front of your house doing anything, and I mean anything, people will walk/drive and for some strange reason, they can't help themselves to stare at you or look inside your house. On Christmas that's when consderation for neighbors goes out the window, even in the best 'urbanizaciones'; cherry bombs at 3am? Yep!

FACT: Crime. PR has a crime plague that has reach all levels of socio-economic levels, not just caserios which is where most of the drug retailers are. Because of this, murder is the most popular sport after politics. If there is any beef between drog lords or puntos, they will shoot without discrimination: highways, food courts at prestigious malls, neighborhoods... they shoot at their enemy but without any regard to bystanders. Home invasions are another sport, carjacking. In many occasions, the robber is not happy enough to get what he wants once he has it, but for no reason you get shot no matter how old you are. So that brings me back to what I said earlier: don't tell anyone your whereabouts, income etc. Drugs: I'm not going there; I would have to write a book of it, so just go to youtube and type 'zombie island'-very explicict! FACT: festivals: just don't go! This last San Sebastian festival one kid got shot after an argument just because he bumped into somebody. People here with guns think because they have one, they are real men and solve the most insignificant disagreement by shooting. So keep in mind that anyone could br armed. Better yet, think everyone is armed. After the festival it was reported the local govt. collected tons of, and I men tons of trash and recycling materials. There were photos of the centuries old cobble stones streets covered with so much trash you could not see the cobble stones and I'm not exagerating. In reference of the killing there, no one saw anythkng despite this was in the middle of hundreds. But they were able to take pictures , post them on fb and making mocking comments. See the decayed moral on the society? Nobody cares anymore. FACT: animal cruelty is out of control. Horses and dogs are also victims. I don't know why people here fall in love with puppies, don't train them and then is the doggy's fault for peeing on the floor. What follpws is the owner drives the poor dog to a beach or mountaind and discard them ( with some trash btw). And you will almost never see owners walking their dogs. Horses? well, anyone sensible enough will see that someone weighing 280lbs. riding a horse which you can see its ribs and without saddle is inhumane. Back to the dogs: animal cruelty is everywhere, no doubt. But here are so many stranded dogs here that a beach was named 'dog beach'. People fro the states-gringos-that live here (beats why they do) have created non profit organizations to care for them. FACT: government: well simply, third world/neo-colonial political culture courtesy of our 'founders' the Spaniards. Well I guess I'm done. It is not my intention to convince anyone of what it is written here but if you do live here and dont see any of this to be true, then you are part of the problem. And for those who are thinking to to respond with 'leave the island then', save the time because yes, Im leaving this god forsaken island! I mean, I left when I was 19, came back at 25 and left again at 30. Came back in mid forties thinking things where somewhat better but I was wrong. Believe me, I love the music, heritage, the real culture, the arts, mountain and beaches, the food and the stories from the old school but for the rest, I dont want to relate to. PS just go to youtube, type 'puerto rico (fill in the blank) and brace yourself.
