One of the most prominent Puerto Rican figures is “el jíbaro” (hillbilly), a country person from the mountainous interior, which is an idealized folk hero, common in island literature and the arts. The jíbaro continues to fascinate artists of various disciplines, and the term is used on a daily basis as a sign of affection, but occasionally as an insult.
