Attracted by the warm culture that resembles their own, many Puerto Ricans, as well as other Latin Americans, have settled in Hawaii. It may not seem like the first choice considering, you know, geography, however the Hispanic population of the state has grown by 40% since the 2000 census. Originally, Puerto Ricans went to work in the sugar industry, however nowadays the main employers of Hispanics are the tourism, construction and agricultural sectors. Whatever your job, you’re near the beach in Hawaii.
