The Puntarenas Pier Light is found at the end of the long cruise ship pier at Puntarenas, Costa Rica. It is a light mounted on a 5 metre (17 foot) metal post painted red and white. Date of activation is not known, however probably was activated at the time the pier was constructed. Puntarenas is found on the Pacific side of Costa Rica and is a long spit of land that juts out into the Gulf of Nicoya. Photo taken from the Island Princess in March 2016.
