Rincon aka Gringo-land

This past fourth of July we had heard there was a small chance we could see some fireworks being set off at the beach in Rincon. More specifically on the summit of Calle Vista Linda we would have an optimal view of said fireworks. Let’s just get this out of the way, there was nada, nothing, zilch to be seen anywhere in the vicinity.

No problem, we go with the flow, in fact if there is one motto you should adhere to on the island, it is this. There are people who have to schedule every hour of their day or they literally cannot function. If you are one of these people, Puerto Rico is not the place for you. Puerto Rico laughs at your plans, maps and schedules.

I’m getting off track though, because as you can see from the photographs we also finally paid a visit to the lighthouse, one of our first stops before getting lost. The lighthouse grounds were exceptionally beautiful as well as the lighthouse itself. You have a few scenic overlooks to check out walking along the park as well. One view is of Dome’s beach, named for the now inactive nuclear reactor built in the 1960’s. Reactor reef, north of the beach is named for the same site as well. (see photo above)

There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t find some kind of fauna crossing our path so Rincon of course isn’t an exception. We saw a couple of very large iguanas on our walk, a kitten (being fed and given water by some kind hooman) near the lighthouse and some magnificent cattle down the road.

If you have some money burning a hole in your pocket, we also took a photo of a small house on prime land situated in the same area. If you’re gonna dream, dream big, right? Personally, Rincon wouldn’t be on my list of places to live on the island but it’s nice to visit.
