El Faro Lighthouse, Puerto Vallarta

(3.7/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
At El Faro Lighthouse, take in picturesque views over the Pacific Ocean from one of Puerto Vallarta’s primary landmarks. At the top of the 33 m (110 ft) high structure, find a circular cocktail lounge. Have a delicious drink at the fancy bar, known as one of the local area’s most romantic night spots. If you stay late enough, you'll be rewarded with an eye-pleasing sunset. The lighthouse now stands primarily for show rather than practicality, with its visibility limited by the surrounding buildings. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Puerto Vallarta holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the El Faro Lighthouse and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Great drinks, but horrible DJ! They allowed us to choose some songs, then told us (after we tipped them) "ok, that's enough with that music, people want to listen to other things" we closed out tabs. As we were leaving they put English sad depressing music on....the songs we chose liven the place up. FYI the dj was playing candy crush and playing songs off of YouTube!
  • Of the best places in Puerto Vallarta their bar at 10m height approximately makes it unique as the city can be seen from there.
