Description

Faro Los Morrillos de Cabo Rojo, also known as Los Morrillos Light.

Located at the southwestern tip of the island of Puerto Rico, this lighthouse was constructed in 1882 in order to guide passing ships through the southeast entrance from the Caribbean Sea through the treacherous Mona Passage into the Atlantic Ocean. The lighthouse is located over a white lime cliff which is surrounded by salt water lagoons and marshes. The cliffs surrounding the lighthouse drop over 200 feet into the ocean.

Faro Los Morrillos de Cabo Rojo, también conocido como Los Morrillos Light.

Ubicado en el extremo suroeste de la isla de Puerto Rico, este faro fue construido en 1882 para guiar a los barcos que pasaban por la entrada sureste del Mar Caribe a través del traicionero Pasaje de la Mona hacia el Océano Atlántico. El faro está ubicado sobre un acantilado de cal blanca que está rodeado de lagunas de agua salada y marismas. Los acantilados que rodean el faro caen más de 200 pies hacia el océano.

The old city of San Juan is magical. With an old fort high on a cliff overlooking the port entrance, the blue brick cobblestone styled roads, and the alleys of beautiful restaurants and shops our eyes are spoiled from the beauty of it all.
