Where does the sun rise in Puerto Rico?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Puerto Rico is Culebra in the region of East. There, the sun rises at 6:09 am and sets at 6:16 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Rincón (West) at 6:24 pm.


Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. San Juan lies on the 18th degree of northern latitude and thus a good distance from the equator.While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Puerto Rico it only lasts an average of 25 minutes. In June, it's about 26 minutes in San Juan, while in December it's 25 minutes.
