Caribbean Map

The United States Commonwealth Territory island of Puerto Rico lies south east of Florida and due south of the islands of The Bahamas. It's the smallest in land area of the four large islands that make up the group of the Greater Antilles located in the western Caribbean (Cuba, The Dominican Republic & Haiti (one shared island) and Jamaica).

This large island forms the eastern boundary of the Greater Antilles and borders the US Virgin Islands to the east and the Leeward Island group. The closest neighbouring island is Saint Thomas in the USVI.

El Yunque Rain Forest Puerto Rico

 

The island of Puerto Rico was claimed on behalf of the Spanish in 1493 by Christopher Columbus during the explorer's 2nd voyage to the Caribbean Americas. Christopher Columbus named the island "San Juan Bautista" in honour of St John the Baptist. The territory remained under Spanish ownership for over four hundred years despite many invasion attempts by the English, French and the Dutch during this period.
