You will find a maritime museum and a whale watching and dolphin-spotting platform at this El Faro Lighthouse and Park in Rincon . The lighthouse dates back to 1892 and razed almost 100 feet. It has survived countless hurricanes, an earthquake and a tidal wave. It was raised and then rebuilt in 1922. The lighthouse has 26,000-candlepower light, which has been automated since 1933 and still guides ships through the Pasaje de la Mona. The museum is open in the winter only from 10a to 2p as it is totally dependent upon the labor of one man.
This is the second time I visit this park. What we mainly liked was the brucal trees. Of course the ocean view. The green areas are really nic, the gentleman in charge of the maintenance was very nice and gave us information about the brucal tree. Do you know if there is any other name for this tree. I woul like to get further info. on it.

Is the most wonderful place, not just to see the lighthouse itself, but to observe whale togetherness ritual, its outstanding and unforgettable. Of course, it is not all year is just between the end of winter and the beginning of summer. They have "El Festival de la Ballena"(Whale's Fest)to celebrate their return.
I wish you enjoy the same as me.
Yes it is just a light house, but in my humble opinion it is also a beautiful,
historical, peaceful place with a breathtaking view of the ocean and from where you can take a peek at the surfers "play with the waves". My husband and I loved it and if you have kids they'll be in "awe" during those "15 minutes" that actually can turn into hours of just admiring the beauty.
