Great place to spend 3-4 hours! We had rented a jeep and really that is the way to go as a taxi would be very expensive if you wanted to see the swamp, the lighthouse, and the beach. We did see the crocodile and climbed the lookout tower over the swamp--very cool. Also the 133 steps if I counted correctly... More

I visited here on a photo tour and thoroughly enjoyed the sites. We stopped at the inland lake overlook, some Mayan ruins and the lighthouse. A lot of fascinating stuff to explore here.

This place was a nice little park to explore if you want a day trip on the island of Cozumel. We drove to the other side of the island...this park is on the most southern end. We started at the back of the park and worked our way back through it. We stopped and did the free boat tour of... More

Had a cabbie drive us out to this park when we had a few hours to spend on the island with a cruise itinerary. The ages of or part ranked from 8-60, and this park was for the bill for all of us. Made a stop at the alligator pond and had a great guide tell us about them and... More

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
