Arecibo, Puerto Rico

A little of history: Puerto Ricans often call the island BORINQUEN, from Borikén, its indigenous Taíno name, which means "Land of the Valiant Lord". The terms boricua and borincano derive from Borikén and Borinquen respectively, and are commonly used to identify someone of Puerto Rican heritage.
