... stay for the grand views! You'll quickly be drawn to the point at Punta Higuera. It was cloudy and the sun had already set, but the views still kept our attention. Desecheo Island was visible in the Mona Passage. Surfers were still searching for waves off Domes Beach. Jagged volcanic rocks stood sentry to breakers making their way into... More

I thought we would look at a lighthouse and be done. But they have built a beautiful park around this lighthouse, with shade, seating and bathrooms. I sat in the shade with the cool sea breeze overlooking the water for quite some time. It's very well kept and clean. I was impressed!

Ricon. . . Ahhh what a town. Surfers, locals, international travelers, good beaches, great atmosphere. It's a destination that removes you from the hustle and bustle of San Juan and shows you a cooler, hip side of Puerto Rico.

The town did a wonderful job with a Trex Boardwalk, clean bathhouse and attractive gazebos that overlook the sunset off a cliff filled with beautiful flowering trees centered around a 1921 lighthouse. What a delightful park. All free with plenty of parking.

While visiting Rincon this March my son and I thought it would be a good idea to visit the Light House at night because it is in a location away from the lights of the town. Great idea! On this crystal clear night the stars appeared to touch the ocean. With the waves lapping the shore below and the beautiful... More
