It's about $25 for a couple. Don't get me wrong the lighthouse is located in the northern section of PR and the views are beautiful! The aquarium well it's nothing spectacular. The grounds are kept nice and clean. As a tourist it's nice to check it out and find a spot to just sit and feel the ocean breeze!

This was a good outing for a couple of hours. Our visit was during off peak time of year so it was pretty empty which I like. Views from lighthouse were outstanding. Place was clean. Attractions in park were good for young kids...maybe a bit cheesy for teens but the views make up for that. Nearby beaches are nice, plenty... More

Took my two young boys on our last trip to Puerto Rico and they loved it! Wonderfully kept grounds, and very informative. There is also a small water play/park area that is perfect for small children (under 10). And its reasonably priced

This was $28 after parking and we spent less than 20 minutes there. There were dead fish floating in the aquariums, most of the fake "ships" were roped off with broken rotted wood steps and the lighthouse at the top was pretty closed off. A great view from the top - but definitely not worth the money and I didn't... More

This trip to the north is a full day. The light house have some great picture opportunities. Be free and enjoy some of the Atlantic beaches and the locals food venders. Try the SETI empanada around the area. Enjoy my friends.
