Faro Los Morrillos de Cabo Rojo


Places to Visit

The Lighthouse cannot be reached by automobile, be prepared to walk up a dirt road. The elderly and those that are lesser fit can make it, but will probably have to stop for a rest several times along the way.

Faro Los Morrillos de Cabo Rojo, also known as Los Morrillos Light and El Faro Punta Jaguey is located at the southwestern tip of Puerto Rico near the town of Cabo Rojo and the Cabo Rojo National Wildlife Refuge. Constructed in 1882 this hexagonal stone structure guided ships from the Caribbean Sea entrance to the perilous Mona Passage.

The lighthouse is located high on limestone cliffs that drop some 200 feet into the ocean. The surrounding area is beautiful with views of salt marshes, lagoons, cacti. Often times you can watch the many migrating birds flying overhead. The location offers many great opportunities for photography.

The operation of the lighthouse is fully automated and the structure itself no longer requires a crew to operate. The illumination system is housed in a cast-iron, copper and glass lantern.

Please take precautions on the cliffs as there are no barriers or railings to protect you as you peer down into the ocean.
