National Geographic quote: Puerto Rico, a semi-autonomous, internally self-governing U.S. territory, is an extraordinary island—an area smaller than Connecticut, mostly mountainous, with some 300 miles of coastline scalloped by soft sand beaches and lagoons easing into warm tropical water. Inland, rolling coastal plains rise abruptly into the Cordillera Central, a densely forested mountain range running parallel to the island's length and creating an unusual mix of climatic zones and ecosystems. Add an appealing assortment of restaurants; hotels and resorts from offbeat to grand; some of the oldest, most historically significant architecture in the Americas; world-class museums of art, history, and culture—and you have what the French historian Guillaume Raynal assured his king in 1780 is "one of the best islands and perhaps in proportion to its size the very best island of the New World."
