We mainly went to the beach and to snorkel the reef. PLEASE snorkel all the way to the end. If you have not seen a "forest" of fan coral, you are not at the end. It is amazing. We saw plenty of fish and even a nurse shark. If you like to snorkel as much as I do, once you... More

Cozumel is great for diving and partying but not a lot of other sites to see. This park was a great excursion, but a little pricey at $14 per person. Nice history of the lighthouse and Mayan ruins. Great not corwded beach areas.

If you want to beat the Jeep Tours & other excursions, head to the park early and go to the long, pristine beaches first. The dirt road within the park is full of nasty potholes & takes a long time to traverse (unless you have a Jeep). We arrived at the beach just before 11:00 and had the sand, hammocks,... More

Wonderful day exploring the lighthouse area and time at the beach. The cost is $14 US per adult. Easy to spend a day here. Completely remodeled restrooms at the lighthouse- BIG IMPROVEMENT!

The park is clean and tidy and has very nice views and some historical items to learn about. Many animals to see including crocodiles and iguanas and of course the great beaches and snorkeling. It is a nice quiet place to hang out and unwind.

We rented a car and drove to Faro Celarain Eco park. We loved it and went back three days in a row. Cost is 14.00 dollars per person. The beach at Punta Sur is amazing. Not many people so it felt like you had the beach to yourself. Papitos Palapa restaurant gets a big thumbs up!. Food was delicious, drinks... More

I would strongly recommend that you rent a jeep on your own prior to arriving at the park. The Jeep tours are pretty rushed and honestly enjoy the park at your own pace. You will start by driving on an curved rock road along the side of the ocean which is a very beautiful site. The lighthouse offers a small... More

Beautiful place to take pictures if you climb the 123 stairs and step out onto the balcony. 3 small shops sit just off the side, the best being the middle shop where they have handcrafted black coral jewelry. On the other side of the lighthouse is a place to taste samples of tequila and sit to watch the ocean. Gorgeous... More

Rode to the park to snorkel. Paid the $14 and rode to the reef to be told I had to hire a life vest and fins to snorkel the reef. The ocean is dead flat. Easy swim for anyone. I refused and said that I am strong swimmer/diver and I wont be needing a life vest and im not getting... More
