Full description
Explore the scenic splendor of the 3 Eyes National Park (Parque Los Tres Ojos) and discover its open-air limestone cave and 3 natural lakes, formed thousands of years ago by erosion.

Look for the variety of fish, bats and turtles that have made the caves their home, as well as a species of giant fern that grows to heights of 13 feet (4 meters). Take a boat ride across the second lake for awe-inspiring views of the cave system and surrounding fauna. 

Upon arrival at the Faro de Colon (Columbus Lighthouse) tour a monument that was erected in celebration of the 500th anniversary of the famed explorer's discovery of America. Supposedly containing the remains of Christopher Columbus himself, the lighthouse features beams of light that form a cross when illuminated. The lights are so powerful they can be seen from the nearby island of Puerto Rico.
