One of the most photographed places in Puerto Rico…Romantic, Dreamy, Mysterious…Worthy of a Pirates Movie Scene
Puerto Rico has it all… and in Cabo Rojo you’ll find unique natural works of art formed beautifully formed by water and wind. The natural bridge has graceful beauty, taking the spotlight of an enchanting and magical landscape fit for a “Pirates of the Caribbean” scene. El Puente Natural is surrounded by bright red limestone cliffs, a beach cove fit for a pirate where the sunset light creates a dramatic scene like no where else on the island. The flora is lush and dry making the scene mysterious with a feel of being in a far away place.
This natural bridge / arch, has become one of the most popular sights on the west coast of Puerto Rico featured in magazines and ads all over the island. Today, locals commonly call this attraction “El Punte Natural or El Puente Natural de Piedra” (The Natural Bridge or The Natural Stone Bridge).
Back in 2005 when we created our sister site CaboRojoPR.com, there was hardly any information on this enchanting place. My favorite place in Puerto Rico is Los Morrillos Lighthouse area, so of course I loved sharing it with the world. I began receiving messages from photographers, magazines and even tv channels, wanting to know how to get to the natural work of art. Today, this is one of the most photographed places in Puerto Rico. We are happy more travelers are experiencing the Puerto Rico we love, don’t miss visiting El Puente Natural.
Just when you think you’ve seen the prettiest sights in the area, if you keep walking you’ll find more natural rock formations, caves, small coves, and plenty of places to sit down with your loved one and simply be lost in the wonder and beauty of this place.
