Still actively providing light to help water crafts navigate through the dark waters of Puerto Rico at night, the Punta Tuna Lighthouse fell into serious disrepair after the Coast Guard ceased control of it. Today, the light house is being rebuilt, but the project is slow going.
Inside the lighthouse, on the second floor, is a small museum featuring pre-Columbian artifacts found by a local resident named Andres. Andres also runs the museum, so if you have questions about anything on display, he is the guy to ask.
Originally built in the 19th century, the lighthouse is a 49-foot octagonal tower in the center of a two story light-keepers house that is now used as a small museum.
A area within Puerto Rico is a good option for those wishing to visit Punta Tuna Lighthouse, because visitors to this part of Puerto Rico will be excited to have convenient access to the lighthouse during their visit.
