Punta Higuero Light
Built by the Spanish at a cost of 12,361 pesos, the first lighthouse on Punta Higuero was activated on January 13, 1893, to help guide mariners to Mayaquez Bay and through Mona Passage, which separates Puerto Rico from Mona Island. The tower’s lantern room originally housed a sixth-order Fresnel lens, which displayed a light at a focal plane of sixty-nine feet. An oil lamp was used as the first light source, but this was upgraded to a more powerful oil-vapor lamp in 1913.
