Had we missed stopping here, I wouldn't have been devastated, but I'm glad we saw it briefly one afternoon. It's probably quite stunning around sunset. The lighthouse and grounds are well maintained and the view is pretty. Parking was easy and it wasn't out of the way for us to check it out, but really all of the area is... More

The view is spectacular, any way you look. Beautifully maintained grounds. Very family friendly spot. I'd like to return for sunset.

Next to el Faro is Diversion and Fun Rentals. This is one of the best places of Rincon. With the rentals you can really explore beyond of what is seen in the pictures. Real nice paradise!!

You have to take a few minutes to walk around this park and see the lighthouse. You will not regret it!

This is a pleasant little park and a great vantage point to check out conditions at Domes and Maria's beaches. When conditions are right you can watch surfers head right for the point...very exciting.

Nice vendors in the parking lot, great views of the beach. The lighthouse is rather underwhelming, its small maybe three stories high and not remarkable, but good place to take pictures.
