Yes, we in Hawaii have a lot more in common with those in Asia and Oceana than many parts of North America.  Perhaps they can include us in three regions J

I really, really, do not want to get into this parochial political fight. Puerto Ricans are US citizens, they have US passports, and they can travel freely to and from the rest of the US just like any other US citizens.

There are surely some Puerto Ricans who wish it were otherwise, but the facts are what they are.  PR is part of NARALO beause PR is part of the U.S., not because of its physical location.  Cuba and the Bahamas are closer to the mainland US than PR is, but they're in the LAC region because they're not part of the U.S.

On the other hand, if we're going to call out Puerto Rico separately, we need also call out the US Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, Saipan, and perhaps Hawaii, all of which are in NARALO because they're part of the U.S. even though they're physically located in other regions.
