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

We LOVE Punta Sur! The long drive in along the pothole riddled road is WELL worth it for the views from the lighthouse, the beautiful uncrowded beach, and the amazing snorkeling. We were in Cozumel for 7 days at the end of January 2014 and spent 3 of them here. We tried other places on the island including Chakanaab and... More

We were hesitant to head to this park, because we had heard that they good snorkeling was far out. And that is true. Luckily they have kayaks to rent to help you get out there if needed. I didn't snorkel because the sand was so soft. It was unlike a lot of the other sand in Cozumel, so it was... More

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
