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

There you can have an idea of haw wildlife is. You see so many different birds, crocodiles, mangle, it is a very quiet place where you can walk and stay there steering at the nature.

Booked the tour through out resort. We took ATVs through town to this park, it was a blast. The park was very interesting, kept very natural, and clean. You see the lighthouse, Mayan version of a lighthouse, crocs and etc.. The beaches and views were remarkable and unbelievable. There were vendors selling stuff, a buffet to eat, place to sit... More

The area has a rich history and had evolved into a way to "stay alive". Enjoy the quiet and take the many steps to the top of the lighthouse! Visit El Caracol on the way in- the Mayan lookout station. Watch out for iguanas. Chomp. Lol

We toured the Eco park as part of a larger island tour by caravan. Driving through the park, you'll catch beautiful views of the Caribbean through the vegetation and will likely see iguanas sunning by the road. We stopped at the crocodile observation deck and my husband and I climbed to the top of the platform. If you're able to... More

You MUST climb up to the top of the light house to see the panoramic view of the southern part of Cozumel. You must read the weather forecast first before departure.If you want to see awesome sunset, near evening. I dislike the Park close at 5;00pm too early ! in May 2014 You have to leave the light house about... More

It took awhile to swim out to the reef. There are some 'rafts' in the water for you to relax on, but they are nowhere close to the reef. The reef is long and shallow once you get there. However, because it takes long to swim out, we wanted to see most of it before heading in. We were pretty... More

We rented a jeep and made a day of the park. I'm glad we saw it, but it wasn't anything to write home about. The beach was beautiful, but we were dissapointed by the snorkeling. We swam over a mile off shore and didn't see much of anything. The drinks at the beach bar were pricey! We did go into... More
