Puente Natural de Piedra - Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico

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.

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.

Please note:  We’ve seen teenagers jump off the bridge and dive into the waters.  Please do not attempt to jump or swim on these waters.  We asked them all the details about the waters and cave, but please trust us when we say… it’s not safe for jumping or swimming, it may look inviting and tempting, but please enjoy this place safely.
