I'm trying to think who would like this? Maybe if I were on a cruise ship, but I wouldn't want to do an excursion with a bunch of people. How would you get there? You can't take a taxi, it's a long, long walk down a dirt road to the beach. So, it's either a tour or a rental car.... More

It's an all day adventure but so worth it. The light house was great and had a lot of history behind it. Food was decent and the area for snorkeling was nice for beginners, although you had to go out a ways to get to the coral.

This place is really beautiful and the snorkel was wonderful however we had a very bad experience. When entering the place the guard in charge told us that the place was very safe, with security platforms in the water and lifeguards on duty. The place were the reef is farther than it seems. In my way back to the shore... More

We've been to Punta Sur many times and always have a good time. You do have to pay to get in, and the dirt road can be in disrepair from time to time (nothing a small car can't handle) but we still keep coming back. The lighthouse area is just so beautiful, your basically looking off the southern point of... More

We took a tour that included entrence to the park and it was amazing. You get to enter the light house and see the amazing view of Cozumel and the ocean. Also it has a small museum.

This was our first stop on a private Jeep tour around Cozumel. Our guide recommended this place for its views of the beach, for the lighthouse and museum, for the crocodile viewing station, and for the small Mayan "weather station" ruins. We did all of those things and enjoyed our time here. I commented to our guide that Cozumel is... More

We LOVE Punta Sur! The long drive in along the pothole riddled road is WELL worth it for the views from the lighthouse, the beautiful uncrowded beach, and the amazing snorkeling. We were in Cozumel for 7 days at the end of January 2014 and spent 3 of them here. We tried other places on the island including Chakanaab and... More

We were hesitant to head to this park, because we had heard that they good snorkeling was far out. And that is true. Luckily they have kayaks to rent to help you get out there if needed. I didn't snorkel because the sand was so soft. It was unlike a lot of the other sand in Cozumel, so it was... More

The beach is amazing -- like something from a movie. My family went snorkeling on the reef and saw a sea turtle, a barracuda, an octopus, eels, and all sorts of beautiful fish and coral. They said it was one of the best experiences they have ever had. We saw lots of iguanas all over the park. The park is... More

We visited this site because our guide book said there was "great snorkeling" off the beach. (Our 12-year-old son was especially hoping to see a sea turtle.) It's a long drive from the park's entrance to the beach. When we arrived there and asked about snorkeling, the guy pointed to a red buoy that was at least 300 feet out... More
