The lighthouse itself is a nice place to visit in addition to the parkland that surrounds it. The only negative issue is that the surrounding park has not been maintained well. Some of the railings are broken or missing and have not been maintained by the town. In addition, the bathrooms are missing paper towels and the trash cans in... More

Beautiful and very well maintained place. Many families visiting it when we were there. The sea view is awesome with surfers all over it. Big parking for many cars and the old Nuclear Station is very near to also visit; a pity they haven't opened it yet. Many good places to have a drink.

My family and I decided to see this before a big storm hit because my grandmother absolutely adores lighthouses. The area is nice and clean, with plenty of walk ways to go around the entire area around the lighthouse. There is a look out for the ocean view and to see Domes beach. It is a nice little stop for...

We took a 2 hour drive from our hotel in San Juan to visit this lighthouse. The drive there was beautiful and we were able to stop along the way to take many pictures. The lighthouse itself was just okay, nothing special. The walkway seemed relatively new but there was not much to see since there were many shrubs along... More

Summer and winter season brings loads of people to the west coast of Puerto Rico to see the Rincon Light House. It was rebuilt about 15 years ago and is kept in perfect condtion. Great for viewing the Whales swimming by during season Dec. thru March. Great for watching the surfers surfing Maria's Beach, the Point, Indicators or Domes beachs.... More

I loved this spot. There were shelters that are perfect for eating a picnic lunch. You could watch the surfers at Domes and Marias beaches. It was amazing. We were looking for whales but weren't lucky enough to see any.

This lighthouse in Rincon is a great place to visit and enjoy then views. You can see surfers on Domes beach, and you can see Desecheo island off in the distance. It is a great place to catch a sunset. Don't expect much to do here. It is just a great place to relax, unwind, and catch some great views... More

Exactly what you would expect. The lighthouse is just one part of this experience. The lookout is what's breathtaking!
