Since Puerto Rico is part of the United States, the island's currency is the US dollar. The US dolar is divided into 100 cents (¢) and referred by locals as "peso".
Coins: 1¢, called the centavo or chavito (penny); 5¢, called the villon or ficha (nickel); 10¢ (dime); 25¢, called the peseta (quarter); and the seldom-seen 50¢ (half-dollar) coin and $1.
Bills: $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000, and $10,000.
The climate of Puerto Rico falls into the tropical climatic zone. Temperatures are moderate year round, averaging near 80 °F (26.7 °C) in lower elevations and 70 °F (21.1 °C) in the mountains. Easterly trade winds pass across the island year round. Puerto Rico has a rainy season which stretches from April into November. The mountains of the Cordillera Central are the main cause of the variations in the temperature and rainfall that occur over very short distances. The mountains can also cause wide variation in local wind speed and direction due to their sheltering and channeling effects adding to the climatic variation. About a quarter of the annual rainfall for Puerto Rico, on average, occurs during tropical cyclones, which are more frequent during La Niña events.
