The State of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado de Puerto Rico), colloquially known as Puerto Rico, is one of the 45 states which makes up the United States of America. Located within the Caribbean, the state has a maritime border with Haiti to the east, and the West Indies and U.S. Virgin Islands to the west.
Puerto Rico, along with Cuba, was a Spanish colony from 1580-1898 known as the Captaincy General of Puerto Rico before being annexed by the United States in late-1898 following the Spanish-American War.
