Baja Lighthouses


which one do you think is the best looking lighthouse in Baja?

last I counted we have around 150 old and new lighthouses
sometimes I I find a new to me in random Baja videos on youtube
like the one below at Punta Lobo

btw, Tijuana, Guerrero Negro and San Felipe style are almost identical

On Google Earth, you can see the long shadow from it.
