A friend of mine who snorkels frequently on the west coast of PR  just told
me that he saw a couple of lionfish while snorkeling at the "Tres Palmas
Natural Reserve" in Rincon during the week of  May 16-23rd.  There are now
sightings from both the east and west coast of the island. So far, there
have not been any sightings in La Parguera, but is just a matter of time.
