Los Morrillos Lighthouse | Cabo Rojo
Cabo Rojo's lighthouse, created in 1882, is situated on a remote location with white lime cliffs encircled by lagoons and marshes, marking the southeast passage from the Caribbean Sea through the Mona Passage into the Atlantic Ocean. Despite having two keepers and an engineer at first, the lighthouse was abandoned after being automated and renovated in 1967. The original lighting device, a lenticular lens made by the French company Sautter, Lemonnier and Company, is still housed in the vintage cast-iron, copper, and glass lantern.
From Monday through Friday, the Cabo Rojo National Wildlife Refuge is open from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm.
