The island of Puerto Rico: A hotbed of UFO sightings and alien abductions?

Written by Nelson C. Rivera (PRUFON)

Welcome to our site.

Puerto Rico is an island, which contains beautiful beaches and it is called "The Enchanted Isle", but it is actually a hotbed of UFO sightings and alien abduction experiences. The island has been a U.S. territory for over 115 years and its inhabitants are American citizens. As such, there are many U.S. military installations throughout the island. Most UFO sightings and alien abductions occur near these installations and U.S. government owned lands. One of the most notable places is "El Yunque Rainforest" which lies on the east coast of the island. El Yunque is the only tropical rainforest in the United States National Forest System. Could there be an extraterrestrial base in El Yunque rainforest? Well, many Puerto Rican and U.S. ufologists think there is.

El Yunque rainforest is a tourist attraction, where they come from all over the world to witness the exotic vegetation and flora and fauna. Although there is no vicious wild animal they should worry about, there are in fact many UFO sightings and alien abductions. This rainforest is where many tourists get lost for days and come back with incredible stories of alien abductions.

The first chupacabra sightings occurred in municipalities surrounding El Yunque rainforest. Could the chupacabra be an experiment gone wrong and then escaped from a U.S. experimental facility in the rainforest? Although this writer, along with most ufologists, believe that this creature is an extraterrestrial beast, some investigators on the island believe that it is only an experiment gone wrong by the U.S. government and NOT an extraterrestrial.

EL Yunque is also the oldest Forest Reserve in the Western Hemisphere. In 1876 King Alfonso XII of Spain set aside 12,000 cuerdas (1 cuerda =.9 acres of land) to be protected for all times.

Puerto Rico is one of the three points of the Bermuda Triangle and is where the chupacabra sightings originated which eventually spread around the world. Moreover, the island is also home to the largest radio telescope in the world. But the reason why these events are occurring is also because of location. The island is almost isolated from the rest of the Caribbean, being the easternmost of the Greater Antilles islands, sticking out into the Atlantic Ocean. This strategic location is one of the reasons why the United States has kept military bases on the island for so long.

The Puerto Rico Trench, which lies along the northern coast of the island, is the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean and this could be the reason why there are many USOs (Unidentified Submerged Objects) observed entering and exiting the water by many people around the island and by tourists along the beautiful beaches. Could there also be an extraterrestrial base somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean and/or deep inside the Puerto Rico Trench?

The Bermuda Triangle, where many ships and planes have disappeared over the years, covers a large span of the Atlantic Ocean and Puerto Rico being the southernmost point of the Bermuda Triangle has experienced one of the most frequent UFO sightings and alien abductions in the world despite being a small island.

This was very interesting! I have also heard about USO's that have been seen coming out of the waters off the coast of Puerto Rico. I would hope that you can post more stories about this strange phenomenon that's occurring around Puerto Rico and around the world. Thanks...

I have looked at the Southern part of Puerto Rico and observed that in the Muertos Through there appears to be a long line leading to a shorter one, it appears to be a landing field underwater, the muerto's through is about 17000, feet deep, and people in that area report that UFO's are seen flying out of the water.

Although there have been many unexplained sightings in the town of Lajas, the situation there has been hyped by the amount of lies and exaggeration by a group of so-called, "ufologists" who ignore other areas of Puerto Rico to promote tourism in Lajas. That was evident when my wife and my daughter confronted a terrifying experience in the town of Aguada with extraterrestrials and that group of charlatans refused our plea for help. Of course, if it happened in Lajas they would have jumped on the opportunity for fame and tourism for that town. Those hoaxes and lies were approved and sanctioned by the then mayor of that town who named route 303 "The extraterrestrial route". The idea of building an "UFOport" (ovnipuerto), “la llorona sightings" and the biggest hoax of them all, "that a UFO crashed there" all this could only be found in a science fiction novel.

About me

Ufologist, criminal investigator, musician, artist and writer.

I worked 20 years for the New York City Department of Correction. First as a Correction Officer for 4 years, Captain for 12 years, and as a Deputy Warden for 4 years.

On June of 2005, after my retirement, I moved to Puerto Rico with my family where my wife and my daughter faced extraordinary experiences with extraterrestrials. These alien encounters, subsequent abductions of my wife and the lack of help from so-called, "ufologists" here on the island, prompted me to become involved in the field of ufology and in the need to help others who have had similar experiences.
