Of course, the national language of the United States isn't Spanish, but tell that to the 41 million people in the country that speak it. Nearly 40 percent of Californians, 30 percent of Texans, 25 percent of New York City alone and 20 percent of Floridians speak Spanish — with a whopping 60 percent of Miami's population fluent in the language. Miami even holds the nickname "Latin American Capital."
Plus, Puerto Rico, a territory of the U.S., is a Spanish-speaking island in the Caribbean. Turquoise waves lapping against beaches, historic districts that predate the U.S. and lush rainforests ripe for adventure are actually pretty darn great and should land the island higher on the list, but the U.S. hasn't done a very good job of helping the island recover from Hurricane Maria, which hit in 2017 and cost $90 billion in damage. It's bouncing back but isn't 100 percent yet.
So, ranking the U.S. above countries where Spanish is the native language seems laughable — especially when this is the same country that suggested building a wall between it and its Spanish-speaking neighbor, Mexico. Sorry, U.S., but you're really the worst for anyone looking to get an authentic taste of that Hispanic flavor.
