Puerto Rico is a tropical island in the Caribbean Sea. It is American territory but has a Spanish culture. Many views of the island are astonishing and breathtaking. Views of ocean and palm trees can be seen from the mountain tops of the island. Lighthouses were originally developed to allow any ships sailing near the island to have visibility of it. Lights on the top of them would be highly visible when the sun was down. These lighthouses are located on almost every part of the island.

Many lighthouses exist on the island of Puerto Rico. Eleven of them were built before the United States acquired the island. Many of them need to be restored because they are in deplorable condition. Currently, projects are being completed at many of them and it is possible that all of them will be accessible to the public in the near future.
The lighthouses each have distinctive names. Some of them are known as the Isla de Mona, Punta Higuero, Punta Borinquen (Aguadilla 1), Punta Borinquen (Aguadilla 2), Arecibo (Punta Morillo), Puerto San Juan (El Morro 3), and the Cabo San Juan (Fajardo) lighthouses. Others are known as the Culebrita, Punta Mulas, Puerto Ferro, Punta Tuna, Punta de las Figuras, Isla Caja de Muertos, Isla de Cardona, Guanica, Caba Rojo, and Isla Cabras lighthouses. Their names tell what part of Puerto Rico they are located in.
