The park is full of puertorrican history, and the aquarium is great, but I found it a little bit expensive.

Took in this "historic site" as part of our Arecibo trip (Rio Camuy, Observatory, the beach), but after paying $75 for my family to go, we spent about 35 minutes and were done. The lighthouse building was open (a few historical items are there to look at), but the lighthouse itself wasn't allowing anyone up. There are some "Pirates of... More

It's a beautifull and soothing place. Very clean. It needs a place to buy food or snacks in the inside.

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
