The introductory text proclaims that "from its sun-bathed beaches to its cloud-tipped peaks, no other wealth of scenery, no other true setting of Old World romance amidst New World Beauty, can be recalled to match the luxuriant natural glory which belongs to Puerto Rico." It goes on to describe recreational opportunities (golfing, legal betting at horse races, yachting, tennis), weather, prominent buildings, and other tourist attractions. Fine copy.
