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.

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.

Overpriced and not in the best conditions,every single thing is overpriced better off saving your money and going to the beach next to it.

The restaurant outside of the park was nice. Very friendly people inside. We then went around to the back side and found a beach area. Beautiful photo ops here. Very jagged rocks, but if you are careful you can climb them to see absolute beauty! Plus you can also see the lighthouse from here as well. Their is a lagoon... More

The lighthouse it very beautiful and overlooks a great beach. It's not really worth paying to spend much time on the grounds, though. Maybe if you have young kids who will like the water park.

The view of the lighthouse and ocean are beautiful. The mini zoo is sad, dirty and run down and the animals did not appear to be in good condition.
