What I like about my city is that it's always clean and the mayor always keeps order of the city. There are police departments in every corner, watching for the citizens and their wellbeing. The hospital, Doctor's Center Hospital, is one of the best hospitals in the area with specialized, professional doctors and nurses. Since 2008, the Festival Internacional del Bolero de Carolina, is made to celebrate all the bolero singers and make a homage to them and their music. There is also a Simon Mall in Carolina called "Plaza Carolina" with a variety of stores and with a big foodcourt. What's not so good about Carolina is that the streets are filled with craters and they somehow "fix" them but in a couple of weeks they are damaged again. The hospital from the UPR, Dr. Federico Trilla, is recognized as the hospital where the bacteria Acinetobacter baumannii spread and caused an epidemic. Nonetheless, us Carolinenses are very proud of our municipality and its flag and hymn.

Carolina, PR is a vibrant city full of lively and friendly people of all ages. It's a great place to find local restaurants that serve the best local cuisine and the beaches are beautiful. It is definitely a great place to vacation. Traffic is only bad during the morning and evening commute, but where is there no traffic at those hour?
Carolina has everything you need, but it's not too spectacular. Supermarkets are pretty dire. You can find many fitness gyms. Nightlife is ok. Food options are varied.
