Worth seeing

The salt flats at Cabo Rojo are worth the trip. The water was low when visited so it was a walk thru water to get to but it’s worth it in my view - I’ve never seen pink water before. Put the lighthouse at Cabo Rojo into your gps and just follow the road. It’s a little bumpy but my rental car was fine on it. Didn’t go to the lighthouse but it looked a short hike up.

We rented a car so that we could go by and see some things that we wanted to see. We drove by the salt flats. The wildlife preserve is closed. We drove along the road and saw the pink salt flats off to the side and came to a spot where there was an opening you could walk through to explore. We walk through followed a path out to the beach it was marked for bicycles and looked at the pink salt Flats. On our way out we saw a sign in spanish that I think told us we weren’t supposed to go in there but there was nothing blocking the opening. We drove along up to the lighthouse but didn’t visit the lighthouse as mostly we were interested in the salt flats. The tower looking over the whole salt flat area was closed. Covid has a lot of things shut down and this is one of them but we enjoyed the quick side trip.

They are not pink at all

They are not pink. Any image you saw on Pinterest, Google, etc. is NOT what you will see here. We drove hours to see nothing.. it was either all blue or dried up. WASTE of time.

Wishful disappointment
Jan 2021 • Friends
Out of all the salt flats, only one could pass for being a slight shade of pink. There was trash EVERYWHERE, most likely from hurricane Maria, but it was very sad to see and kinda gross in areas. The hiking by the museum is the only part worth the trip. Was not worth the 2 hour drive from San Juan though.

Quick Visit
Feb 2020 • Couples
Quick stop at the Salinas de Cabo Rojo after exploring Playa Sucia & Faro Los Morrillos the historic lighthouse in Cabo Rojo. There’s a tower where you can go up to see the view of the area and the salt flats. If you have extra time, too bad we didn’t, you may be able to hike the area and see some wildlife and walk the salt flats. It’s hard to miss the tower as it right on Hwy 301 the road going to The Lighthouse

Salt flats are really cool , the salt is shades of pink drying in their beds , there is a plant there that process’s the huge piles of salt . Lots of good bird watching also with observation deck!

Relaxing adventure

Beautiful area with a little bit of history and a lot of excellent views. You find a little museum about the island sea salt industry. The tower give you an opportunity to look, admire, the area. They also offer guide walks through the salt flats and dunes. Great place to combine relaxation, history and nature.

Great photo ops!

It was kind of an adventure to find the place but once you are there and you will be rewarded with sweeping ocean views, absolutely stunning salt flats (millenial pink anyone?) and a great lookout point..which is also across the gift shop. Definitely worth the drive from the northern part of the island!

Worth a visit!

Really cool stop to make when not on a time crunch. It’s worth the visit to check out the whole scene. You can get through everything in about 45 min or so. The museum they have is small but interesting and the lookout tower was amazing. Go for the experience.

Quite a find!
Feb 2019 • Friends
We had no idea that Puerto Rico had a salt-making enterprise, one that dates back to Spanish colonial times. The salt flats are part of a US National Wildlife Refuge where volunteers are on hand to interpret things (and sell you a bag of the salt to take home, but when we bought ours they advised us to put it on checked baggage only since TSA might think it was something else!). There is a small tower which enables you to get a panoramic view of the salt beds.
