Higuero Lighthouse

Higuero or Rincon Lighthouse, built by the Spaniards in 1892, it sat too high on a cliff to be damaged by the 1918 hurricane waves of the west. But an earthquake weakened the tower and in 1922 it was rebuilt in concrete. It now crowns a small park, and although you can't go into the tower, there is a small restaurant and gift shop and a spectacular view of Desecheo Island and the sea. If you are lucky, you'll see migrating humpback whales. You will most likely see surfers from nearby beaches whizzing by on wild waves. The park is located near the end of Road 4413, in Rincon (787-823-5024).
