Fodor's Expert Review La Ponderosa Lighthouse Ruins

Aguadilla Nautical Site/Lighthouse

Along Route 107—an unmarked road crossing through Punta Borinquen Golf Club—you'll find the ruins of La Ponderosa, an old Spanish lighthouse, as well as its replacement, Punta Borinquen, at Puerto Rico's northwesternmost point. The original lighthouse was built in 1889, destroyed by an earthquake in 1918, and rebuilt in 1920 by the U.S. Coast Guard. Just beyond the ruins is a local surf spot, Playa Wilderness.
