Ruinas Faro Punta Borinquen, or simply The Ruins, is one of the most historic and unique spots in Puerto Rico, as well as a truly magical spot for Puerto Rico destination weddings and elopements on the beach. An elaborate lighthouse was built on this location by the Spanish in 1889. In 1918, an earthquake struck the area and damaged the beautiful building irreparably. Over the past century, nature has reclaimed The Ruins, enhancing its rustic beauty. Not only are The Ruins perfect for a sunset wedding, the photo opportunities are endless both on the property as well as the deserted beach where it sits. Take a look at our video, and contact us for more details about having your Puerto Rico destination wedding at The Ruins!

The Ruins was recommended by our wedding planner. Even though I grew up on the island I never had the pleasure of visiting this breathtaking piece of heaven. Our music were the waves crashing in the background! We even danced to it.
Various settings to chose from.... facing the ocean, on the Ruins platform, view of the ocean and mountain. Varied photo backgrounds for sure.

It is a beautiful venue. We absolutely loved it and the pictures turned out well. There was no one else there and that is what we wanted, a private, secluded ceremony. It was a two hour drive for us from the Condado area.
