Family outing while visiting in the area. Nice park could use a little maintenance but otherwise a beautiful place. Vendors friendly without being pushy. Watch the surfers from the bluff.

It was VERY Quiet and high above the Atlantic Ocean. The two available apts were the renovated quarters of the LH Keeper, today it is all computerized. Outside is a picnic area and playground for children. This is available for Active Military and Retired. Call the USCG MWR Ofc or better yet, go to the Website for Boringuen Air Station.... More

Stayed here with my husband two years ago. The view was beautiful and the apartment very nice. It had a lost of space both indoors and outdoors.

A great quick stop to view the lighthouse and take pictures. It's disappointing it is not open to the public to tour.

Inside of what it was Ramey Air Force Base. Now home of Aguadilla International Airport Rafael Hernandez. Historic lighthouse well preserve by the U. S. Coast Guard. Right between housing is not and usual site for a lighthouse but made this one very unique

To get here you need to pass literally through the golf course. The road is unpaved and narrow, so I don't recommend visiting on a rainy day. Is not far away so you can walk from the paved area to the ruins. The view is very pretty. We went on a Tuesday and was almost deserted. I don't recommend going... More

Next to the Aguadilla Airport. Punta Borinquen is the northwest corner of Puerto Rico. Here you can see the ruins of the Aguadilla Lighthouse that was constructed in the 1880's. The lighthouse was destroyed by an earthquake in 1918. Is a nice place to take pictures. The beach is beautiful but with big waves so you have to be careful.... More
