During your visit, you can’t miss the photos from the highest point of the Scenic Lighthouse, since the view towards the park and the Caribbean Sea is impressive. While climbling is not allowed access to any object (cell phones, cameras, caps, sunglasses, etc.) but don’t worry, because in the Lighthouse are cameras where you can take pictures and buy them at the end of your visit. Here we share some tips for you to have the best photos here:

1.- If you have long hair, we recommend you take a hair holder to tie it up, this because sometimes it is too windy up there.

2.- It is also important that you position yourself or poses in favor of the wind so that this benefits you.




3.- The sun can be a factor that complicates a bit the photo session, so we recommend that when scanning your bracelet you stand in front of the camera, close your eyes if the sun hurts you, count 3 seconds and open them. Since the cameras shoot takes 5 seconds, you have two seconds to open your eyes and smile.

4.- Try with different and fun poses.




Remember that you can take as many photos as you want until you think you already have a good one.
