It has been found in every country in the world. I'd be very careful about
statistics that don't come from a Lyme-friendly site.
People say it doesn't exist in the desert (i.e. Aruba)? Yeah, right. I've seen ticks practically hopping up from the sand in sandy areas.
Puerto Rico has some densely vegetated areas, so danged right, it exists in PR.
There may not be deer in the P.R., but I'm sure there are many dogs, and dogs are probably as dangerous as deer, esp. in a poorer country.
All mammals carry ticks; even songbirds carry ticks.
