This was our second visit, but our first on our own (not with a tour group). It was quiet at the lighthouse, and we explored the museum on our own, then headed out to the ruins by the beach. A gentleman in a uniform approached, introduced himself as George, and then gave us about a half-hour, personal tour of the... More

We were coming from the restaurant inside Punta Sur and had spent all day snorkeling, and did a quick stop at the lighthouse. The view is amazing and you are able to see the lagoon and the sea contrast of colors. Sorry, no elevator

Hope you see some alligators in the refuge. We enjoyed climbing the Lighthouse. Interesting seeing the remains of Maya style lighthouse

Beautiful area with great views from the top of the lighthouse. It was a little cloudy the day we were there but we learned a lot of history about the area and saw one of the islands badger like critters. Also learned the importance of the mangrove trees to the reefs via our tour guides, Explora Caribe.

Sadly we were here just for a "little moment" while in a jeep tour to various places and my first impression about this place was not so good because there was trash near the entrance and that area needed lots of maintenance, oh well we parked by the lighthouse and our jeep tour guide said we had this much time...

The colours of the water here will mesmerize you and take your breath away! We came for 9:00 am and had enough time to visit the lighthouse, go on the free lagoon tour (for tips), relax on the beach and in the hammocks and swim out to the reef for a snorkel without feeling rushed. The sand in so white,... More

1) make sure you bring sunscreen! This was a nice visit and the water is absolutely beautiful. Be sure to check the views out from the lighthouse as well. When you're driving around punta sur, be careful for lizards as they seem to like to hang out on the side of the road.

Lighthouse, beaches, crocodiles, Mayan ruins, lavender everywhere, even a hammock to relax in! We rented a jeep through Cozumel Tours and our guide directed us to this beautiful park, which we thoroughly enjoyed.
