Tips for moving from California to Puerto Rico

Tip 1: W. Francis moved from California to Puerto Rico one year ago

They use your surname and your mother’s maiden name in Puerto Rico (‘’Apellido Paterno” and “Appellido Materno’’). When they ask for it, it is used for everything.

Tip 4: P. Guildford moved from California to Puerto Rico four months ago
If you are planning on taking your car to Puerto Rico, then you should know that it should be sent empty and with less than a quarter of a tank of gas. They should give you this information up front but I had been planning to ship a bunch of stuff in the trunk and that just didn’t happen.

Tip 5: M. Lindon moved from California to Puerto Rico eight weeks ago
I started doing a Spanish course to brush up my forgotten skills. Sure, most people speak or understand English but that is really not the point.
