There is a kiosk bar at El Faro. Soft drinks, beer, wine and of course rum drinks. It is a must go if you're in Rincon. Surf and surfer watch in addition to whales that have recently been spotted.

If you're in the area, it's nice to stop at the lighthouse for the views. You can see along the coast in both directions and can watch the surfers from high above. They've also opened a little bar in one of the out buildings.
