    The few dollars to watch your car is bullshit. I lived in puerto rico from 1994 to 2016. Its old san juan where that shit happens, no where else.

  2. Tanya Klingelhoets on April 10, 2023 at 7:08 pm

    great video, thank you!

  3. TO GOD BE THE GLORY AND HONOR MINISTRY on April 10, 2023 at 7:10 pm

    Im a nutshell pr is not the same as the US MAIN LAND

  4. JohnnyJayZe BoomBoomRoom on April 10, 2023 at 7:10 pm

    Only Aguadilla i lived there for a year and a half my heart stayed there

  5. Salero 21 on April 10, 2023 at 7:10 pm

    Poro Rico is a U.S. Territory but still is more like a third world country. A lot of crime there so better stay in the tourists area.

  6. TO GOD BE THE GLORY AND HONOR MINISTRY on April 10, 2023 at 7:11 pm

    Everything is slower unlike the us mainland. Power grid and water servives not stable after maria hurricaine.

  7. Ruben Feliciano on April 10, 2023 at 7:11 pm

    dont fuken come here !

  8. ERR_LHB on April 10, 2023 at 7:16 pm

    Don’t come to PR

  9. bach916 on April 10, 2023 at 7:17 pm

    Over priced car rentals, usually a couple grand, u get lost ask someone first thing out there mouth is where is that at. This is all B/S. 😂😂😂😂😂

  10. SOUL M∆N on April 10, 2023 at 7:18 pm

    I would love to go to see the water glow bio illuminascent looks stunning

  11. Ramon Rios on April 10, 2023 at 7:20 pm

    Well Puerto Rico it all about beaches! Not go so far , the east is your place for great beaches and not far.

  12. Jason S on April 10, 2023 at 7:20 pm

    Hello, where is the restaurant located at 4:50? I really want to see this. Thank you

  13. A Flying Starly on April 10, 2023 at 7:24 pm

    As a puertoriccan it’s nice to finally see a good guide about us. I can agree to this.

  14. graythorn on April 10, 2023 at 7:25 pm

    I always see everyone talking about renting cars there for visits. Why is there no Scooter rentals? Most islands I’ve visited they use Scooter Honda 125 or the like. Think If I went to Porto Rico I would just buy one it would come out cheaper then renting a car.

  15. The Train Man on April 10, 2023 at 7:26 pm

    I remember when we rented a car during our visit in Puerto Rico, They told us not to use our turn signals as drivers in Puerto Rico never use them and that if we use our turn signals, we can get marked as a tourist and get followed as they can do worst to us

  16. Daniel O Navarro on April 10, 2023 at 7:27 pm

    Good video only thing 11 mistake refering to US from Puerto Rico as mainland our mainland is Puerto Rico only ,un les you are in Vieques or Culebra ,other than that Puerto Rico is the mainland …other than that this are 2 seperate countries..Witherspoon a few similarity…other than that good video of our beutifull nation Puerto Rico

  17. curious observer on April 10, 2023 at 7:29 pm

    Mosquito Bay, Vieques. If you do the night tour, do you have to stay on that island overnight, or can you get back after the tour?

  18. sleepy justin ♡︎ on April 10, 2023 at 7:31 pm

    I’m from Puerto Rico in I love it I’m proud to be from there us Puerto Ricans r kind in honest in generous:)

  19. ELEVO on April 10, 2023 at 7:31 pm

    I always park in a private parking lot because of those local beach bums. You pay them something and when you come back they are gone and your car is still broken into. So either park at a private lot or Tell them You will take care of them when you get back and they are usually there waiting when you get back. I carry cold water, snacks, etc. and I hook them up as well.

    Most are drunks or drug users, but most are kool and down to earth. Im Puerto Rican also from NYC so I know how to deal with them since we have them here in NYC as well.

  20. CASTRO MASIMPLE on April 10, 2023 at 7:33 pm

    This the most negative anti PuertoRican propaganda video! If you are trying to scare travelers to stay away PR, you definitely accomplish your goal! So definitely I’ll NOT subscribe to your channel!

  21. TO GOD BE THE GLORY AND HONOR MINISTRY on April 10, 2023 at 7:33 pm

    Beware also hospital services are not as the main island.

  22. picisa on April 10, 2023 at 7:33 pm

    Ok. But don’t wear war plugs. Puerto Rico noises are an absolute blessing. Especially the coqui at night and the music coming from everywhere. Enjoy. Stop acting like it’s annoying. Why come if you are not gonna enjoy the every day stuff. ? I hope that didn’t sound weird, but I miss the coqui so much. And I am proud of our constant lovable talking. Lol.

  23. Alex Zubkov on April 10, 2023 at 7:36 pm

    I only worried to get syphilis from local mamas 🤡

  24. Dr Rd on April 10, 2023 at 7:37 pm

    Remember, you are a guest here. Act like it, know your place. Stay in your lane. A little respect goes a long way.

  25. V P on April 10, 2023 at 7:37 pm

    What beaches have the clearest water in PR?

  26. TO GOD BE THE GLORY AND HONOR MINISTRY on April 10, 2023 at 7:41 pm

    Ultimately last but not least, beware of crime I say again, BEWARE OF CRIME RATE WHICH FOR A 100×35 ISLAND IS SO HIGH.

  27. Larry Mehaffey on April 10, 2023 at 7:44 pm

    name a good guide for outside San Juan bubble please

    Thank you I really needed this

  31. Levi Shelley on April 10, 2023 at 7:49 pm

    I’m so pumped… Ponce is my destination in March

  32. Edwin Baez Jr. on April 10, 2023 at 7:51 pm

    Ahhh… I miss the Island Time. Growing up on the Island the day felt like it was more than 24 hrs!

  33. INSIGHTS on April 10, 2023 at 7:53 pm

    I can’t slow down when I’m hungry and waiting for me food 😆

  34. Yumi•_•Yamashita._. on April 10, 2023 at 7:54 pm

    I’m planning to go to Puerto Rico next year with some of my friends, they are Puerto Rican but we are all teenagers, we planned to stay with my friends family down there but they say a couple things to prepare before we go there. Like they said on the roads they have to speed to ensure they don’t get stopped by anyone on the side of the road and also not to take pictures near residential areas because it could be considered being a traitor but idk how that correlates. Also my friend said it’s really dangerous and there are a lot of wild dogs and horses and animals lol idk I’m still going but I was wondering if anyone had any tips because although we are stating with my friends family we aren’t going to be with them the whole time and we are all teenagers and my friends aren’t very aware of their surrounding and they draw attention to themselves which probably isn’t the best choice to go to a different country with lol but it’s not that I don’t want to go with them idk

  35. Tony Cheng on April 10, 2023 at 7:55 pm

    When you said it will get expensive if you hangin around downtown how much are you talking about?

  36. Silvertheboss on April 10, 2023 at 7:56 pm

    And come with a lot of money everything is expensive

  37. stormtrooperholds on April 10, 2023 at 7:57 pm

    Bruh this white dude cut him off while he trying to plug his YouTube channel. What the fuck dude

  38. Abraham Velez on April 10, 2023 at 7:57 pm

    Why are you putting Puerto Rico down with comparing with the mainland? Haven’t you wait a little more in a restaurant, or found something more expensive that it should be? If the Mainland is so much better, stay there then and don’t come here just to put us down for some lame ass BS. Puerto Rico is a beautiful place and so are it’s people. Nothing here is perfect, just like in the mainland

  39. Saint Anger on April 10, 2023 at 7:58 pm

    This was really good

  40. _Sabathia _ on April 10, 2023 at 7:59 pm

    San Juan dorado ponce isabella ricon aquadilla 👍

  41. Rubin Lopez on April 10, 2023 at 7:59 pm

    Is this the same scammer that made all those fake videos and later apologized for it?

  42. Oscar L on April 10, 2023 at 7:59 pm

    forgot one of the most important things….. mosquito repellent

  43. bea gulls on April 10, 2023 at 8:00 pm

    I’m Gunna go to PR this summer just to throw a tantrum because no one can speak English.

    I’m just Gunna do what everyone does here to me at the states when I can’t speak spanish

  44. DBrasco27 on April 10, 2023 at 8:00 pm

    Soy de hatillo, Guajataca was the bee’s knees in the 80s and 90s and there were monkey’s in the trees.

  45. C0UNTM30UT on April 10, 2023 at 8:02 pm

    The only place in the US worth visiting

  46. Matthew Delgado on April 10, 2023 at 8:02 pm

    At 6:50 Whn talking about the sun n heat the show 3 girls in pool , one on the left starting n huge tettas in the middle nice

  47. Brian on April 10, 2023 at 8:04 pm

    Fun fact: If you’re driving down the road and you see the vehicle in front of you stopped, talking to the person in the car that is stopped in the opposite direction, Don’t get out of your vehicle, Don’t honk the horn, and don’t get mad? Just sit there and wait until the conversation is over, because if you try to address the situation it might be the last vacation that you take. There’s a lot of cowboys in P. R.

  48. Recon Marine on April 10, 2023 at 8:05 pm

    I’m from Puerto Rico and what this guide is saying is true. Just be cognizance that Puerto Ricans wants you to enjoy, relax and have fun, we don’t rush so understand that you are on an island on PR time and yes every restaurants wants you to relax and enjoy the food we will not rush you so enjoy a couple of drinks before your food comes out it may take a little while thats why we want you to relax and enjoy your time in the restaurants. Furthermore, San Juan or the metropolitan area is not what Puerto Rico is all about. If you want to learn and see what Puerto Rico is all about you need to travel and go to the west side of the island try to spend a day or two on the westside and a day if two on the southside and mountain regions only then you will really understand what PR is about and the people. We have so much to offer you just need to want to meet our people and see what each town has to offer. Puerto Ricans love to party, if you see us partying or in a group setting come by and introduce yourself and we will gladly invite you to stay with us and have a great time this is what we are all about. Another thing, yes you’ll hear people say PR has a lot of crime and its true but most of the crimes are drug related incidents. Drug dealers will not mess with tourist the last thing a drug dealer wants is being a target for going after tourist. Just use common sense no different when we travel to the US. Actually and lately the US has more violent crimes then PR!!! So enjoy our island so you can come back for more…….
