I´ve been in cabo twice, the very first time I went to check the lighthouse of course. It´s very cheap to enter (less than 1 USD) but you have more than 100 hundred steps to reach the top. It totally worth it! I loved it...More

It's a very dizzing climb to the top, but the views are well worth it! Make sure to bring a bottle of water with you if it's a hot day. Very helpful attendants.

The lighthouse is impressive itself, but also there is a big colony of sea lions in this area. Very recommended to come and see them when you are in Cabo polonio!

One of the few lighthouses still turned on and off by hand. Yes, it is a lot of steps to the top, but worth it. Go see it!

going to the lighthouse is a must do experience in Cabo Polonio. It's very cheap and not impossible to go up, but a bit claustrophobic. Anyways, great view and you can see all the village and the sea lions.

Entrance is only 25 pesos, and the views are great. Remember to take off your hat or it will fall off!

The view was pretty. I've seen cooler light houses, this when you can walk up for about one US dollar. It's not that crowded around lunchtime. There is a nice view of the seals

Our best pictures from cabo polonio we made from the top of this light house. Very cheap to get up totally worth the price. You must go there.

From here you can see the whole town and coast around Cabo polonio. Its the best vintage point to have a view of the sunset as well as some of the sea wolfs that hang in the rocks bellow it. 25 pesos p/p
