Enjoy the view at the lighthouse which is also part of the Nature Reserve. The lighthouse was constructed in 1880 by the Spanish. It is the second oldest on the island and was listed in the National Register of Historic Places by the United States government on October 22, 1981. In 2001, under the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act, it became the first lighthouse to be transferred to a non-governmental organization in Puerto Rico. Due to restoration work, during the tour there is no access to the lighthouse.

You must have reservations to get past the guard since drops in are not allowed. They recommend you to get there 30 minutes early, which gives you time to relax and enjoy the breeze.
