One of our favorite snorkel spots.

We had a great time snorkeling here. We where able to see multiple large star fish, lobster, and an amazing 10ft nurse Shark lurking under some rocks!

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

There was a tower to climb up for some panoramic views, a boardwalk, and crocodiles to see. Everything is better on vacation!

You must climb the lighthouse, eat at the tiny cafe next to the lighthouse and visit the beaches. We spent a whole day here. The lighthouse views are gorgeous. The tacos are tortas were delicious. The beaches - paradise. I'd skip on the snorkeling. We paid for a life jacket (brought our own fins and masks) but the water was... More

We love going to Punta Sur for the snorkeling, especially. We were very disappointed this year, though, to be "required" to wear a snorkel vest - which was not a snorkel vest, but a heavy-duty life preserver that you'd wear on a boat trip. The guy in charge at the snorkel beach almost didn't allow us to snorkel because we... More
