The lighthouse had many places to sit and relax. Couldn't go into the lighthouse but the view made up for it. They had local people selling different items which was a great spot to shop. The people are all so sweet and many locals come there to hang out and play dominoes! Fun to watch!

Beautifully landscaped, gorgeous views, very peaceful. We were able to video the waves crashing on the rocks and take beautiful scenery photos. A must-see if you're in Rincon.

We were staying close by, so we walked most of the way to the lighthouse via the beach. The lighthouse itself wasn't open, so we couldn't check out the views from up top. The views of the ocean from the park were beautiful. While we were there we saw two Iguanas - really cool! The largest one was hanging around... More

Rincon is known for its laid back lifestyle for surfers and vacationers to relax, enjoy either the Atlantic or Caribbean waters depending on where you are at in Rincon so the El Faro Lighthouse is a nicely maintained park area to scope out when you visit.

The Faro de Rincón (Rincón Lighthouse) is located on the westernmost tip of Puerto Rico and has spectacular views. The city built a passive park in the area that is very well kept and on weekends there are local vendors in the area.

The lighthouse and it's surroundings are extremely clean and the beautiful gardens are well taken care of. It has excellent views to the ocean and in some months you can even spot whales! You will definetely take many picures here!

The town of Rincon did a beautiful job in creating this park around the lighthouse (El Faro). There are great views of the ocean at Domes Beach, Dead Man Beach and Indicators Beach The only negative is that the town does not keep up with the required regular maintennce. Some of the railings have degraded and have fallen away from... More
