Puerto Rico is hot and humid most of the year. Light clothing is a must. Availability of household appliances, clothing, supplies, food, etc. is similar to any other large city in the U.S. Most products come from the U.S. mainland. Spanish is the main language of the Puerto Rican community, however English is spoken in most large department stores, restaurants, government offices, hotels, and any place that caters to tourists. On post, English is the official language. The ACS Information and Referral Program assists soldiers and family members by providing information regarding military and civilian community resources and by serving as a liaison between families and social service agencies.
