One of the cool things in Puerto Rico is to visit the different lighthouse around the island. There are only a few lighthouse that are almost complete but the broken ones are the best ones to admire.

Not much to see here as far as the lighthouse goes. Lighthouse and bathrooms were closed when we visited. Do go for the spectacular views.

1. Check for the time of the sunset 2. Pick up a cold six pack of Medalla 3. Drive to the little dirt parking lot just south of the lighthouse with someone special 40 minutes before the sunset. 4. Play some music. 5. Enjoy the absolutely best show on earth that is different every night.

It broke my heart to see this place kind of run down. Some of the fences were knocked down, maybe due to vandalism. They no longer have a snack bar nor a gift shop open. It is still nice to visit, watch the sunset, and take pictures.

It will seem as if you arent headed anywhere but after 3 Minutes or so you will se a small path towards the left. Take that small path and you will come across a natural bridge made... More
