We walked from the Centro area, at our hotel, through the city and to Playa Olas Altas and then followed the Malecon around toward the south of that beach and on around to the next. You will eventually follow the seacliff to the marina area where there are taxis to get to Stone Island. Follow the causeway/road til you get to the sewer treatment plant (sorry, but that's where it is) and just past it turn right into the gate. There is a sign but its tilted and hard to find saying this is the entrance to El Faro. Follow the trail up and over the rough washed out dirt road until you get to the staircase. There are iguanas in the foliage and loads of cactus and plants. The view is incredible, and so worth it. Be sure to take water along, especially on warm days as it is a long hike. The lighthouse keeper sells water but I am not sure of the hours.
