Punta Higüero Lighthouse
El Faro, the Punta Higüero Lighthouse dates from 1892 and rises almost 100ft. It was restored in 1922 after being severely damaged by a tsunami set off by the devastating 1918 earthquake. The 26,000-candlepower light has been automated since 1933 and still helps ships navigate the Pasaje de la Mona. The principal reason to come here, however, is the view. Five great surf breaks are nearby and sometimes humpback whales come within 100 yards of the coast.
Rincon Snorkeling Adventure
Steps Beach at Tres Palmas is one destination you can always count on for great snorkeling. The area is protected by the government, so the elkhorn coral that is dominant here has had a chance to flourish while sea turtles, squid, reef fish, and dolphin visit frequently. Most people visit the reserve as part of a snorkeling tour. A snorkeling trip to Desecheo Island is another popular option as it is just about 30 minutes away by boat. However, if you feel more comfortable renting a snorkeling kit and heading into the waters of a public beach on your own, it certainly can be done here if you proceed with caution. Make sure you monitor the water conditions daily and never enter the water when the waves look even the slightest bit strong.
