This family-friendly hotel isn't very close to the lighthouse from which it takes its name, but it's a good place to keep in mind if you're driving along the coast and need a place to stop for the night. (Keep a sharp eye out for the "Parador" sign on Route 107, as it's easy to miss.) Cheerfully decorated rooms surround a pair of pools, and there is a game room and basketball court for kids. The restaurant, Tres Amigos, is one of the most highly regarded in the area. Its
specialty is steaks and other meats that come sizzling from the grill. The closest beach is Playa Crashboat, only five minutes by car.
