With nearly 1 million residents, Jacksonville is Florida’s most populous city and the center of a growing metro area of 1.5 million people that spans two states. It is America’s 12th biggest city.
The Jacksonville business community has long had ties with Puerto Rico. More than 75 percent of all trade between the U.S. mainland and Puerto Rico moves through Jacksonville, making it the number one port in the country for trade with the island.
There is also a growing connection between the cities for medical tourism. According to the Jacksonville branch of the Mayo Clinic, 16 percent of international patients come from Puerto Rico, more than any other country.
