We trotted by lighthouse, area looked clean and tranquil during the morning ride. A couple of vendors were situated right in front. We were told many happy couples marry in the gazebos.

Yes, there are no facilities, but who cares. You come here for the view and the well kept grounds.

As with many things in PR, it is a beautiful place with lots of potential but poorly maintained. Railings down, dirty restrooms. Vegetation is ok, and the view is spectacular. I proposed to my wife here 1998 and it looked way better. I was sad to see that the souvenir store is no longer there. It's a nice 20-30 min... More

Really nice historic lighthouse. Great ocean views and breezes. Great view of Domes beach. Lots of seating and shade trees. One of the few places on the island that they clean up the trash.

Loved our visit and the photos we took at El Faro. Go there with a camera! Also, it's fun to visit the people who sell their arts and crafts. We enjoyed Limbe, freshly made, for $1.

The night we went they just happened to have a culinary event. Food was great they had little kiosks set up selling things and a bar which had amazing drinks at a very cheap price. We walked around had a beautiful view and there is plenty of free parking.

Very nice visit. There is plenty of parking, the area is well kept and is near the Maria's surf beach and the non operational nuclear reactor dome. This light house was constructed at the late 1800's and early 1900's. It's a quick and easy visit so you should give it a try.

This place is wonderful. The view is splendid and the place is usually very clean and cozy. Wear light clothing hence it's very hot in this part of the island.
