“Great views, quiet location, well kept grounds”

Yes, there are no facilities, but who cares. You come here for the view and the well kept grounds. Plants and flowers are beautiful, especially with the bright white lighthouse and blue ocean in the background. Lots of spectacular views. There are usually a couple of vendors in the parking area as well with food and souvenirs if you need them.

“Great view, no facilities. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

As with many things in PR, it is a beautiful place with lots of potential but poorly maintained. Railings down, dirty restrooms. Vegetation is ok, and the view is spectacular. I proposed to my wife here 1998 and it looked way better. I was sad to see that the souvenir store is no longer there. It's a nice 20-30 min stop traveling the west of the island then go to downtown Rincon and get some coffee with cupcakes.

Really nice historic lighthouse. Great ocean views and breezes. Great view of Domes beach. Lots of seating and shade trees. One of the few places on the island that they clean up the trash.

Loved our visit and the photos we took at El Faro. Go there with a camera! Also, it's fun to visit the people who sell their arts and crafts. We enjoyed Limbe, freshly made, for $1.
