Puerto Rico is a beautiful island, the people are great and the Tarpon are always there. You can lounge or play on the beautiful white sand beach. Swimming pool and kid’s pool on property. Put on your sneakers, bring a bottle of water and get ready to how the sea and time has sculpted beautiful natural works of art on the reddish limestone around the majestic cliffs of Cabo Rojo. Enjoy the 360 degree ocean views from these commanding cliffs and breath the fresh air.
Such location was selected to conduct research for the wide ocurrencies of solar salterns and thalasic evaporites. Quartz, feldspar and calcium carbonates are the most abundant minerals found in this area. The refuge also has an area of salt flats with an observation tower overlooking the vicinity. The refuge helps protect numerous species of vegetation, animals and wildlife and preserve them. The Cabo Rojo Salt Flats, at the southwestern tip of Puerto Rico, provide important autumn stopover and wintering habitat for migratory shorebirds. I studied the abundance and distribution of shorebirds and their food resources at this site during autumn of 1990 and 1991.
One is that it comes from the red color of the water in the salt flats and the other is it comes from of the red color of the “morrillos” in the area of the lighthouse. Each of the areas has its own special flavor. The sparkle of the dried salt is as the sun touches it is gorgeous. The prevalence of high solar radiation and the scarcity of rain during most of the year promotes the formation of hyper saline environment”.

In areas where the coastline has changed significantly from the base map (either through natural or artificial processes), the geologist modifies the base map by hand. In addition to classifying the shoreline, the observer takes representative low-altitude, oblique photographs for each ESI habitat. There are two areas to land boats: P?ros, in the southwest, or the Sardinera area in the west, close to the management office. Hiking trails run throughout the island (there is a topo map available from the United States Geological Survey). Where up towards the “big city ” area around San Juan is a knock off of the whole “city doesn’t sleep attitude”, Cabo Rojo is really laid back. The people here, for the most part, are very friendly and helpful.
The Cabo Rojo Salt Flats
Another Island, reachable by boat, is the Isla Mona – a wildlife sanctuary where you can view the many bird and animal species up close. And don’t forget your snorkeling gear at home because the coral reef at Isla Mono is amazing to see! The north side of the island is known as “Blue Marlin Alley” because of the large number of migrating fish that pass near its shores, especially in the summer. Puerto Rico is home to the International Billfish Tournament and specimens in excess of 1,000 pounds have been recorded.
Located on an isolated point with white lime cliffs surrounded by lagoons and marshes, Cabo Rojo, built in 1882, marks the southeast entrance from the Caribbean Sea through Mona Passage into the Atlantic Ocean. Cabo Rojo’s lighthouse has simple decorative elements including an unelaborated cornice that is repeated in the tower. There is beauty to behold here from steep cliffs overlooking the water to a subtropical forest to glorious beaches.
