We took our 7 year old grandsons to the lighthouse and took the tour. They loved it. The tour was very informative, and the view was beautiful! Great place to go for fun and a history lesson.

We really led climbing the lighthouse and taking in all the history. There is a good video as well as many plaques. It is all well done. Lighthouse is free with 8$ per car admission to park.

We had a great time. The climb to the top was exciting lots of stairs but the view was amazing. The park ranger on duty was very friendly.

I was staying at the Ritz on the island and walked over here (2.5 miles). A nice walk to the lighthouse, and up it. Got some great pics at the top.

Nice walk and educational trip. Need to walk off some of the Cuban food and Mojitos. Lots of open beach to make it a good day trip.
