It’s hard to remember in our land of the free and our home of the brave, that the exotic isles of Puerto Rico belong to us, but if you want to live somewhere that constantly feels like a vacation and don’t have the money to buy a lanai house in Maui, Puerto Rico is the perfect tropical locale on home turf. In San Juan, you can basically live in a state of eternal summer with temperatures averaging in the 70s and 80s all year round. The streets are basically made for artists because with such gorgeous weather and evocative Art Deco architecture kissed by the balmy Caribbean breeze, Puerto Rico takes a lot of its art outdoors. It also has a burgeoning art scene in its hipster-laden Santurce section. If you’re not looking for a beach front property, rent can be pretty cheap and Puerto Rico’s up-and-coming vibes, especially as a tech-savvy city, makes it the perfect place for young people to start their art careers.
