Puerto Ricans Are Protesting the Attempted Privatization of Their Public Beaches
One of the best things about Puerto Rico is its natural beauty. In particular, the many amazing beaches across its islands — all of which are public. Though there are no private beaches in Puerto Rico, some beachgoers and newcomers apparently thought otherwise. On January 26, 2022, an incident was posted on social media that showed a couple who had purchased one of the multi-million-dollar homes on Ocean Park beach trying to block off a section for themselves. When questioned by the beachgoers, the unidentified woman in the video insulted them.
