“Stunning ocean vistas, beautiful parque.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

My husband and I have visited El Faro on numerous occasions. Day or night, it is spectacular experience. El Faro is on a promontory, so you can see the beaches at Maria's Playa and Domes. On our last visit on New Years Day 2013, we enjoyed walking the promenade, buying a coconut ice from a vendor, and breathing in the salt air.

“Beautiful Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Must see place if you are in Rincon. It an old restore lighthouse with an spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean and The Caribbean Sea. If the season is right, you may even see a humpback whale.

“Beautiful lighthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

The lighthouse is so beautiful in the Caribbean setting. We also enjoyed watching the surfers on Domes Beach from the lighthouse. Great place to spend an hour or two walking around and enjoying the views.
