Puerto Rico debuted in Miss World in 1959, but went absent from 1960 to 1969. In 1970 a new organization took the responsibility of sending contestants until 1985 via castings. Puerto Rico did not compete in Miss World from 1986 to 1988. The Miss Puerto Rico organization, directed by Anna Santisteban, got hold of the Miss World franchise in 1989 and sent the 1st runner-up of Miss Puerto Rico to Miss World until 1995.

In 1996, Delia Cruz, mother of Puerto Rico’s only Miss World titleholder, Wilnelia Merced Cruz, took the franchise and started organizing the Miss Mundo de Puerto Rico pageant whose winner has been competing ever since in the Miss World pageant. Puerto Rico has produced one winner (1975), two 2nd runner-up (2005, 2011) and ten semi-finalists (1976, 1978, 1980, 1985, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010), and one quarter-finalist (2012) at Miss World.

Who do you think will be the next Miss World Puerto Rico 2016?
