"Spanish isn't required in..." Puerto Rico Local Custom Tip by diver-x

Puerto Rico Local Customs: 53 reviews and 46 photos

Spanish isn't required in Puerto Rico, but it does help. Especially if you're heading outside the tourist areas. We stopped at a Burger King about 30 minutes outside of San Juan and the cashier didn't speak English. But it's amazing how easy it is to speak the universal language of Fast Food!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
