In Puerto Rico especially in the capital San Juan, there’s bunch of problems with our politics. There’s a lot of corruption everywhere. You really can’t trust anyone. Coincidentally the two factions that pretty much make our politics are blue and red. The blue are for the New Progressive Party and the red are for the Popular Democratic Party.

San Juan is also known for being the capital of the country in which I reside. Its metropolitan style attracts most tourists apart from that in it are the country’s best beaches. Food is a close second; here you can find a grand variety of street foods, the most popular restaurants and our overall comfort foods.

Although it is a beautiful city with amazing people, good restaurants and places to visit, it also has its faults. It’s very noisy, the people can sometimes be a bit rude, the roads are very unkempt and there are many bad drivers, which can contribute to stress. Like any other city, it has it’s pros and cons. Which should always be acknowledged when considering to move in.

Before moving to San Juan, people should know it is a very noisy city. There are many shops and tourist attractions which I know many are bound to enjoy. Nightlife is very active, yet expensive. Rent can also be rather costly, but most pharmacies and markets are relatively within the average person’s budget.
