One of the places we passed was the Guanica Light on our way to the San Jacinto Club/Restaurant where we took a ferry to Guilligan's Island. The lighthouse is... More

We passed this on our way to caña gorda. You can see the flag painted on the building from the street.

The Guanica light house is not in good condition, but it shows, what happens, if nature takes over an abandoned property. You can climb up to the first floor and have a great view. Careful with small children!

Can only imagine how this lighthouse loooked when it was in use. It's worth the stop for some pictures especially if you like ruins. If they can't fix it they should put a small plaque with part of its history.

The lighthouse is practically in ruins, though some parts of its unique architectural elements are still visible. It was activated in 1893 and deactivated 1950.
