We got to walk up the narrow steps of the lighthouse. Then we took some pictures of this very unspoiled area. Honestly it was good to leave the hotel and get a real San Salvador Vibe of island.

I've been to this lighthouse at least two times. It has been open both times and provides a complete view of the island which one might not otherwise except maybe from the plane bringing you to the island.

2 years after Joaquin the little houses on each side of the lighthouse are still in disarray. It takes so much effort to bring an island back. Other pic is 1st Catholic Church view from the lighthouse.

Have been a few times over 25 years. Unfortunately much storm damage to surrounding buildings. This was a plantation before the lighthouse was built. Very interesting stop.

... and better choose a day with not too much sun. We already visited the southern part of the island by bike, so this time we decided to head north. The Lighthouse offered itself as a point of attraction, and so we pedaled there. We...More
