Went here on a jeep tour and loved it. The tour was with Explora Jeep Tours and they provide a great day on the Island.

Cost o enter is $224 MXN, but worth it. They maintain the road, protect the turtles laying the eggs and look after Columbia Lagoon and preserve some Mayan ruins.

We didn't want to be part of a tour group to see this attraction, so we rented a jeep and drove to the lighthouse on our own. Beautiful view from the top, might be a bit difficult for larger folks to climb, but certainly worth it once your there. Take your time, go when it's not crowded; it's peaceful, beautiful,... More

This is a nice place to climb the lighthouse, and if you're lucky see a crocodile. There is a nice beach here also. The snorkeling isn't much. The reef is maybe 1/4 or more out from the beach. The beach I'm referring to here is a bit north of the lighthouse . I don't think it's safe to swim out... More

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
