This place has a breath taking view but the tower is very dirty.. There was water in the floor. The enter (inside) of the tower was very flooded too and stink. But once you are up there you see a lot of towns arounds like Peñuelas, Lajas, Sabana Grande, San German and obviously Maricao. The view worth the drive up.
I've been here lots of times, last time was in Summer 2010. It's beautiful!! This is part of the Maricao Forest State Park, a very important forestal park, which is the origin of most, if not all of the est coast's water sources. When you go up there, you can see the sea (well, the Mona Channelm actually), Mayagüez, Maricao,...
Cool tower and view but I didn't think it was worth the drive up.
Note: If it has been cloudy, foggy or rainy in the area do not bother going up to the tower. You won't be able to see anything.
There is parking right at the tower. You don't have to hike to it or anything.
Travelling and visiting various places in PR with my wife. This place is fairly close to home and we had never been. The views are spectacular. It is easier to come up route 120 from Sabana Grande. You can then continue on Route 120 into the town of Maricao. Take some time to take pictures of the fountain and plaza....
