Faro Punta Tuna

Lighthouse in Yabucoa & Around

Named after the fruit-bearing tuna (prickly pear) cactus that once covered the area, this lighthouse makes for a scenic stop. Built in 1892, it juts out high above the ocean, with sweeping views of the dramatic coastline. The lighthouse itself is closed to the public. A small museum above the office has Taíno artifacts.

Pair a stop here with a visit to the neighboring Reserva Natural Humedal Punta Tuna.
