What exactly do you mean by "giving you a hard time"?? What is the Paypal system allowing / not allowing you to do?

Eric:

That sucks. Probably Paypal at fault. But could it have been your credit card company (bank) that's the one blocking your subsequent charges? It's good when your bank looks out for you -- but sometimes, they can be a bit too "helpful".

OTOH, if it's Paypal that's discriminating against an entire US state or territory -- versus blocking suspicious individuals -- then maybe it's time to get a lawyer -- or the ACLU -- involved. Sounds like the makings of a class-action lawsuit.

I had someone hack into my Paypal account last year. They took out $500 and it took 6 months for Paypal do NOTHING! I would call on a weekly basis and would speak to numerous managers. No one dig a thing. I finally contacted B OF A and my money was restored and finally resolved. All the time that I was dealing with the two companies, I had the person who hacked me, threatening me with bodily harm, telling me that he/she knew where I live and would come and get me. Really that is true!...I chuckled knowing that this would not happen. Long story short. I am NOT a fan of Paypal at all. They suck!!!!!!!!!!

It isn't clear if the OP is from the continental US visiting Puerto Rico or resides permanently in Puerto Rico. If the former, did the OP inform their CC issuer that they would be traveling? Placing account freezes due to foreign transactions without prior notification is pretty standard practice. Since it sounds like the issue is with CC backed payments, and not e-check (sounds like bank account backed funds) the issue may be with the CC issuer.

The other reason I suspect it may not be Paypal is when I had my Paypal account hacked last year, Paypal Fraud caught it and they froze the entire account and I could not even log in until I called customer service - I cannot see why if a company suspected an account was compromised that they would still allow partial functionality like it seems is possible in the OP's case.

Nice photo. It looks similar to a Scots Pine Marten?

Hope you get sorted out btw.
