this is a partial list of films set in Puerto Rico; either the movie's plot includes that island, the movie has been filmed there, or both. Certain movies that are supposed to be set in Cuba are filmed in Puerto Rico because of the U.S. embargo and similarities between both islands. To learn more about the films of Puerto Rico, see Cinema of Puerto Rico.
