Inspirock Rating:
3.9/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • 360 view of the Puerto Vallarta Marina, the sunset, ocean and the Sierra Madre landscape is awesome! No snacks are offered, but drinks and service are good. Music gets louder as the evening goes along...  read more »
  • 360 degree view. This is a bar open @ 6:00- ? The drink menu was extensive but the on hand wines were very limited, diappointing 
  • The place is located in the marina of Puerto Vallarta and the view that has is all the yachts and the hotel zone with the account based on the place. It is jn place where pueses watch the sunset (without seeing as the Sun gets) but you can enjoy the variety of colors in the sky. The service is good without being something that you remember. Prices are high but I think that it goes with the concept of the place (in the sky). Recommended for when you want to look good to someone or to learn a little of Vallarta from his marina.

  • Nice bar/lounge with a nice view to catch up with friends. Most evenings there will be live music which is great but the regular tunes can be very loud. Drinks are on the pricier side but not unexpected. Take the stairs from the harbor up to the second floor for the elevator (which is tiny and only fits 3 guests and the extraneous operator). You can also take the spiral stairs to the top.
  • Great view, unfortunately buildings have been erected in the surroundings that obstruct the sunset views...
  • Unreal place a must see ice cold beers also
  • Fabulous view, friendly staff, but watch out they will clone your debit card and wipe out your accounts. Make sure you pay with cash if you decide to venture in.
  • This beautiful sight, as the place is literally a beacon, the service is good, this very nice concept, ideal for precopeando
