The sun kissed beaches, colonial architecture and golf courses of Puerto Rico have emerged as major attractions, drawing millions of tourists each year and an increasing number of second home buyers from the USA and beyond. The island's natural beauty is also a major draw and legislation has been brought in to protect this for future generations. A new law approved by Puerto Rico's governor in April 2013 protects 2,900 acres of land along the northeast coast, including pristine beaches, lush tropical rainforest, more than 861 types of flora and fauna and a major nesting site for the endangered leatherback turtle.

San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico, is one of the major transport hubs of the Caribbean. As a territory of the USA, there are numerous daily flights from a large number of American cities and American citizens do not require a passport. There are also direct flights from Europe, Central and South America.
Besides the convenience of being just a short flight away, Puerto Rico also offers a relatively low cost of living, high quality property and a range of new tax incentives introduced last year to lure real estate investors, including reduced taxes on capital gains, interest and dividends. Puerto Rico recently introduced legislation which reduced taxes on capital gains and income derived locally from investments made after becoming a resident to 0%. To qualify for residency you need to spend 183 days per calendar year on the island and, given that Puerto Rico is a US territory, residents are not required to renounce US citizenship.
