Don't miss Arecibo Lighthouse & Historical Park, a cultural park featuring an array of activities, sights, and landmarks. When you arrive, head first to the central attraction of the park, the lighthouse. Built in 1898, the neoclassical structure sits atop a rocky headland and houses several exhibits dedicated to marine artifacts, the Spanish-American War, and the history of the lighthouse itself. From the roof, enjoy sweeping views of the ocean, and perhaps even catch a glimpse of a few whales, if you're lucky. Elsewhere in the park, inspect replicas of a pirate ship and slavery quarters, as well as an aquarium, a water park, and a small zoo. Make Arecibo Lighthouse & Historical Park a part of your Arecibo vacation plans using our Arecibo online trip itinerary builder.
Arecibo Lighthouse & Historical Park reviews
Great place for couples and kids to visit. I enjoy it very much. Would recommend it. We went on a weekday and it was not crowded which was very good. It’s beautiful. more »
Great views from this location. Access is easy and the nearby beach is a beautiful bonus. Do not let this one escape you. more »
Great day trip for a family. Especially good for younger kids thanks to the Pirate ship playground, little splash water park, and Pirate cove - complete with pirate scenes and a mini aquarium (think Pirates of the Caribbean on a non profit budget). For the adults, visit for the gorgeous views of the beach and ocean. Truly breathtaking on a sunny day. There are clean restrooms and a nice snack stand as well. Great restaurants nearby can round out your day.
Great views the ocean, neat mini-aquarium and pirate stuff... Can't access top of light house, but still good views. Mini water play space for small kids... Probably good until age 10
