ETS Security Overview – Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is an incorporated territory of the United States and because of this it does not have its own independent autonomy and is subject to federal guidance and funding. Puerto Ricans are granted US citizenship but do not have full political representation under the United States. Unfortunately, the Island of Puerto Rico has suffered from high levels of government debt which has led to economic instability. This has been made even worse by natural disasters which have severely affected the islands infrastructure and economic well being
Natural disasters have played a tragic role recently in Puerto Rico. Hurricane Maria caused widespread fatalities and damage to the infrastructure to the island which severely damaged Puerto Rico’s power grid which led to power outages to the island's population. The medical care after the disaster was severely impacted which led to fatalities. In addition to this country-wide communications were destroyed and it placed the island in a "communications black out" both internally and internationally. There was widespread damage across the island from towns, major cities, agriculture, and industries throughout
Crime can be an issue in Puerto Rico. Instances of pick pocking and street robbery occur also acts of violence such as sexual assaults and homicide do happen however despite having a high homicide rate this is normally gang-related. That being said all travelers should be aware of their surroundings and pay particular attention at crowded gatherings and traveling at night. It should be important to note that Puerto Rico is a tropical island which is in large parts mountainous and rural so caution should always especially when traveling in remote areas
The infrastructure of the roads is generally considered well maintained on the major routes of travel and on par with western standards however the level of driving can be erratic, so it is always important to drive defensively. In addition to that rural roads, especially in jungle and mountainous areas that can be badly effected should a natural disaster such as hurricane occur
