I collected 194 Y DNA samples from Puerto Ricans at 23andme. I'm pretty sure all are Puerto Rican, if not Puerto Rican they are almost certainly Latino.

Here are the results. Puerto Rican Y DNA. (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1KcDoinzPGBFw4CEXVwWppFek43aX9AwQsxSac0rL-oE/edit#gid=0)

About 90% of Puerto Rican Y DNA is Spanish. It also looks like something around 70-90% of their mtDNA is Native American. It makes sense because 90% of Spanish colonist were male, so their only option was to marry Native women. African input on mtDNA and Y DNA looks equal, which would make sense if a similar amount of African men and women slaves were brought to Puerto Rico.

23andme nomenclature is out of date, so I don't know what deep subclade labels mean. I think I'll email some of the individuals and ask for their Y DNA file, so I can figure out what subclade according to ISOGG they belong to. Getting Y DNA files from Puerto Rico will help learn about Spanish Y DNA, and their mtDNA will help learn about the mtDNA of Native Caribbeans. It looks like about 100% Native Caribbeans belonged to C1b and A2.

Most Puerto Rican autosomal results I've seen look 70-80%+ Spanish, 10-20% Native American, and 5-10% West African.

The 23andme longhand nomenclature is based on the 2009 ISOGG tree which you can look up at http://www.isogg.org/tree/index09.html or by using the 23andme mutation mapper at https://www.23andme.com/you/labs/haplogroup_tree_mut_mapper/ The only reason to email the people would be to determine if they have tested other SNPs not tested at 23andme.

Here are some of the R-M269 longhand names -

R1b1b2 M269
R1b1b2a L23
R1b1b2a1 L51
R1b1b2a1a L11/S127, L52, L151, P310/S129, P311/S128
R1b1b2a1a1 M405/S21/U106
R1b1b2a1a1a M467/S29/U198
R1b1b2a1a1d L48
R1b1b2a1a1d1 L47
R1b1b2a1a2 P312 (not tested by V3 or V4 chip)
R1b1b2a1a2b M153
R1b1b2a1a2c M167/SRY2627
R1b1b2a1a2f L21
R1b1b2a1a2f2 M222
R1b1b2a1a2d S28/U152
R1b1b2a1a2d3* L2
R1b1b2a1a2d3a L20

There are another 442 Y-DNA Puerto Rican results at https://www.familytreedna.com/public/puertoricansurname?iframe=yresults and a large number of mtDNA results at https://www.familytreedna.com/public/puertoricansurname?iframe=mtresults

Most of the Y-DNA participants haven't had SNP testing though so their subclades are just predictions by FTDNA. 252 of 442 (57%) belong to haplogroup R and most of them are predicted to be M269 or tested at least to P312.

there is also plenty of Sephardic jewish ancestry in Puerto Rico. And the spanish is higly of Canarian origin.
