  • I could easily spend the entire day here taking photos of the beautiful ocean and next door Domes Beach, and having some good drinks and empanadillas. Great ocean view and breeze. Bring your camera...

  • Fun day trip with family or friends. Beautiful views, great vegan restaurants nearby, a fun place for children, and can be a super romantic spot for couples as well. A farmer's market is run on Sundays and it's also a popular spot for antique car shows, surfing contests happen nearby, and much more. Rincón is highly recommended if you ever have a few days in the island and transportation to drive around and explore.
  • Excellent place for visiting with the family. Love it and will be back.
  • One of the most beautiful views ever plus wonderful historical place. The bar near the lighthouse is fantastic. You could try one of the best juices with or without alcohol. Great to taking photos and videos.
  • A Beautiful view from the sea and the island of desecheo with a place to get a cool drink and sometimes enjoy music bands who can sing in both languages Spanish and english and if you're very lucky when the summer gets closer you can actually see whales enjoying themselves and the heat of the island
  • Beautiful place, excellent views.
