This is a great spot to get some landscape picture of the mountain. Most tours hit this place on the way to hike through El Yunque.

It is something like 87 stairs, which didn't take that long for a beautiful view. There was a tour group there and it was a little crowded in the stairwell.

Great view for the mountain side overlooking the ocean in the far distance. You can park very close to the tower if you get a spot then walk up the tower for a little exercise.

98 steps to the top of the tower. Not bad at all. On your way up you can stop and look out the windows to see the views. The views at the top were beautiful. Loved every minute of it :)
