Enjoyed about an hour here searching for crocodiles and learning about the eco system and mangrove area in Cozumel.

There was not much there, no shade and very hot. Small museum and lighthouse-miniscule Mayan ruin, no croc sighting n no turtle sighting (season is in may, were not told that when booked tour). Tour guide rushed. Was disappointed!

we loved snorkeling here. The fans and fish were amazing. You need to drive to the end and ask the staff where to snorkel. We also went up in the light house, and saw a crocodile at the bird observatory. We wish we had more time as we arrived in the afternoon.

We were the first ones to arrive at the light house and it was GREAT!! We did not worry about running into others on the stairs and we got some terrific photos. They also have guides that work on tips for the crocodiles and the reef trips and we greatly enjoyed their knowledge. They were not pushy like the red... More

We only visited Punta Sur and the Faro Celrain park once but we wish we had more often. We laid in a hammock, snorkeled and had an amazingly relaxing day. Cash bar and fairly expensive, as I found for all the beach bars - $3-$4 for beer. This is a beautiful place.

Admission has increased to $14 per person; perhaps to cover the money they've spent improving the access road, which used to be kidney-rattling rough. The views are amazing: the initial parts face the rougher eastern shore with wave action and surf; winding around to the very end of the road is a sugar-sand calm beach area that faces south, with...

The lighthouse and accompanying museum are beautifully restored. There are hammocks and places to swing, and a gorgeous surf slamming the sand. The view from the top is spectacular. The crocodile viewing area is hit or miss. We've been there several times; this was the first time we didn't see crocs up close, but we did see a couple off... More

My husband and I have been here several times. It is never crowded, sand is so fine, clean bathrooms, wonderful hammocks and just beautiful water. It has the best snorkeling reef on the island! A must see...but it is about 300 yards out! You must "rent" a kayak and guide to show you the reef. You can swim it (like... More

Is beautiful but this is how to find it and where the best part is. Just go out directly from the main building . You have to cross a weedy part, a coral stoney part, and then open sand before you hit the reef. It is maybe three hundred yards out, but is there so keep going.. You then turn... More

we went on a day when the weather wasn't cooperating for snorkeling, but we were informed of this before we chose to go inside the park. We did a lagoon tour and saw some crocs in nature and had a group of young people who are trying to restore mangroves back into the area that were destroyed during a hurricane.... More
