Don't miss Arecibo Lighthouse & Historical Park, a cultural park featuring an array of activities, sights, and landmarks. When you arrive, head first to the central attraction of the park, the lighthouse. Built in 1898, the neoclassical structure sits atop a rocky headland and houses several exhibits dedicated to marine artifacts, the Spanish-American War, and the history of the lighthouse itself. From the roof, enjoy sweeping views of the ocean, and perhaps even catch a glimpse of a few whales, if you're lucky. Elsewhere in the park, inspect replicas of a pirate ship and slavery quarters, as well as an aquarium, a water park, and a small zoo.

  • Very fun. We loved the views at the lighthouse. The make through the cave was so much fun! We spent a bit of time in there looking at all the fish! The pĂ­rate ships had the kids playing forever. It was safe, and I loved that. The little water area is excellent!
  • Great place to visit! The aquarium and pirate display was unexpectedly good. Great place especially if you are looking to entertain kids, but me and my adult family had a great time! It is a little dated, but after such a tumultuous few years that is to be expected.
