Great views

Excellent view, excellent spot and romantic. Is a great place to visit, the views of the water are amazing from here. Near to great local restaurants, Rincón is a paradise.

The setting is lovely; although the lighthouse is closed, and it is not possible to climb to the top of the lighthouse to enjoy the view. Nonetheless, a visit to Rincon would not be complete without a visit to El Faro Lighthouse.

If you like to take pictures and enjoy the great view of an awsome minument like El Faro you will like this place. It have bathrooms, many seatings and an awsome view of the ocean and the surfers doing their thing in the Rincon Beach which is famous for that sport in PR.

By far, one of the most pleasantly pretty places we stopped by and took pictures of. The view of the ocean is PERFECT.

it's light house, and a park, and they sell nice crafts and jewelry in the parking lot. But don't make a special trip here, maybe stop in on your way to watch the surfers who are far more interesting!

My husband took me here during a little west coast Christmas trip. We were staying in Boqueron and decided to take a day trip up to the lighthouse in Rincon. I was not disappointed.
