Of course, you could also just sell your possessions and buy new ones in Puerto Rico, but if you’re not ready to part with the relics of your old life, you’ll have to hit up the transportation companies.
Before we moved to Puerto Rico, there really wasn’t much information available online and I had no idea who to ask.

Healthcare for Visitors
The first time that my parents visited Puerto Rico, my Father ran out of his prescription insulin. His prescription and corresponding refill was through Walmart and we assumed that not only would Walmart US and Walmart Puerto Rico be the same, that also the US Medicare healthcare program would be the same. We never did get consistent information, but long story short, the insurance would not cover his prescribed insulin but did offer a lower dose insulin (without prescription) for less than the regular co-pay. The crisis was diverted and now my Father always verifies his insulin and all medication before coming to visit Puerto Rico.
