Puerto Rico is about three times the size of Rhode Island with a population of roughly 3.2 million. It became a U.S. territory in 1898 after Spain ceded it following the Spanish-American War. It is one of the five inhabited U.S. territories, including American Samoa, Guam, the North Mariana Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens. Since it is a territory of the U.S., citizens from mainland U.S. do not need a passport to visit. Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens (granted in 1917) and pay most federal taxes (except for federal income tax).
