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

February is the time of year for whale watching off the coast of Rincon, PR. and El Faro Park is the perfect place for viewing these beauties of nature. The park sits on a bit of a cliff just between Marias and Domes beach and it is also a great spot to watch the surfers as well. If you go... More

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.

there is a path here from the lighthouse parking lot. lots of seaweed, but its easy to get around it and to the water. lots of rocks and sea glass, we picked around in the sand for quite a while. great strolling area.

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.

This park is one of the most beautiful sites I've seen anywhere. PR takes pride in its municipal parks and facilities, and this is one of the best for a picnic lunch by the sea. Ample native trees and plantings, freshly painted facilities, and with nice large picnic shelters. The Faro is better maintained than some of the lighthouses on... More

This was the first place we went in Rincon and it was a nice introduction to the area. It is a clean and manicured park with great views. You can see different beaches and sets of surfers from different ends of the park. There were a couple of small gift kiosks set up in the parking lot when we were... More
