|If you are planning to really enjoy Puerto Rico´s warm
climate, we invite you to consider Porta del Sol region.
And remember, you don´t have to leave Porta del
Sol to go for a real adventure.
In the year of 1493 Christopher Columbus landed in the west coast of the Island of
Borikén. The territory of Borikén was inhabited by the Taínos.
It was also through the west coast that Ponce de León arrived fifteen years later to
start the colonization of the new territory for Spain. But less than three years after
his arrival, the Taíno started their rebellion against the Spaniards.
Almost four hundred years later, the territory was given to the United States after
the Hispanoamerican War of 1898.
It has been through the west that Puerto Rico´s most important events in five
centuries have taken place. Join us and learn more our culture and enjoy all the
natural wonders in this region.
