Rincon

We left the North of Puerto Rico with heavy rain. We wanted to stop on the way at the beaches along the West coast and spend an afternoon in Rincon. But due to the rain, we stopped there only for a moment, stretch and continued West to Parguera for check-in.

Right next to the lighthouse there is Playa Domes which is known with the old nuclear facility hiddien in palm trees.

Today the weather got better and we went to the cape of Cabo Rojo. On the way we stopped at the salt fields Las Salinas to show Ella closely how the water evaporates and the salt is formed. Fields were so colourful, it was beautiful.

Road to the Cabo Rojo lighthouse, which rises on a hill on the Southwest cape, is one of great suffering. Dirty road is full of potholes and it takes forever to drive over. However, it's worth it. Cliffs at the Atlantic ocean are fascinating and photos cannot capture the beauty at all.

Puerto Rico is an island of lizards of all sizes. We meet them at every step and we have already become used to it.

On the way back to the car we walked along the cliffs and came to the natural bridge Puente de Piedra.

There is a beautiful bay with white sand and turquoise water La Playuela under the lighthouse. Straight out of a catalog. We spent all afternoon there and appreciated again that there is off-season here and the beach was almost empty.

The West is really beautiful part of the island. Mainly Southwest reminds us of the South of France, peaceful and colorful coastal villages with bars and restaurants offering seafood. Parguera area is one of the few places where you can admire the illuminated bay after dark.. Flagellates live in the water and when you activate them for e.g. with swimming, they begin to shine. Unfortunately camera was not able to record this natural phenomenon. Anyway, can you believe us, it was an experience.
