What is the telephone area code for Puerto Rico Argentina?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Puerto Rico is part of the North American Numbering Plan, telephone country code +1, along with the USA, Canada, and various islands. Puerto Rico uses telephone area codes +1 787 and +1 939 in an area code overlay.

Calls from the US mainland to Puerto Rico are dialed "one plus," and are considered domestic calls, but may or may not be included in "nationwide" calling plans.

(The plus sign means "insert your international access prefix here." From a GSM mobile phone, you can enter the number in full international format, starting with the plus sign. The most common prefix is 00, but Japan uses 010, Australia uses 0011, and many other countries use different prefixes.)

Who named Argentina?

Asked by Wiki User

There is no one person who named Argentina. In the early 1800's (before Argentina became an independent nation) the people of Buenos Aires were called "argentinos" which means people from silver. This is because there is a very large river in Buenos Aires called the Rio de la Plata, "the river of silver." Therefore the people were called "argentinos" because in Latin the word for silver is "argentium."

In many ways, geographically, Chile is the California of The South, also The Oregon and Alaska of the South. Because Chile is similar to the US West Coast. Just consider that seasons are reversed.

Central Chile is Like Central California, Valparaiso is like San Francisco near the woody Coastal Mountains, Santiago is the capital like Sacramento (central Valley, great for fruits and wines) and the state eastern border is Andes which is more impassable and higher than Sierra Nevada.

As California did, Chile was a land of pioneers and settlers and also of Indians (Mapuche Tribe 5%) which rapidly were absorbed by Spanish soldiers and immigrant and settlers especially from Southern Europe (Spain, Italy, Croatia and Levant countries) and Germany.

The quality of life is the highest in Latin America, reaching similar levels to Southern Europe but without bulls and castles. So many Chilean towns has some American characteristic: shopping malls, skyscrapers, highways and hardworking people. Santiago is like a modern NYC new trends on architecture and technology.
