Correa-Pérez have made pioneering contributions to the development of science and technology in the country while physicians such as José F. Cordero and Martín Corchado have enriched the field of medical science.

Alonso who is considered to be the first Puerto Rican writer of notable importance. Many prominent figures in the field of entertainment like Juan Emilio Viguié Cajas were born in Puerto Rico.
