We came here as part of a Jeep tour around Cozumel. There's a fee to get into the ecological park where this lighthouse is, but it's worth it. Climb up to the top- the steps get VERY narrow- and step outside for a fantastic view. Walk around the grounds to check out the ruins of the old lighthouse that was... More

Great view of the ocean from atop the lighthouse. We also got a free tour of crocs with Jorge. That was awesome. We had a great day at Punta Sur.

Researching things to see and do, I knew I would like check it out. This was one of the stops already part of our private jeep tour. The lighthouse is part of the Faro Celerain Eco Park, there is an entrance fee to go into the park. Once you get into the park, the drive towards the lighthouse, you see... More

This was one of my Favorite stops in Cozumel our guide was too nice!! The lighthouse is very tight squeeze but OMG worth the climb. The swings outside are fantastic. The waves crashing on the rocks were perfect backdrop for a pic!

We rented cars to drive around Cozumel. I did research on the lighthouse but apparently not enough because no where did it say it closed at 3PM. We did not get to see the lighthouse but I'm required to give an Overall rating so I chose average.

One of our stops on our personal jeep tour in Cozumel, and it was so beautiful. Some small ruins right there, and you can climb the lighthouse for fantastic views! Hammocks and chairs to relax and enjoy the beach too!

We stopped here briefly along our trek through Punta Sur with a group via the "Explor" jeep tours. We started with lunch and beach time at a private beach club that we do not recall the name of, but the food was great and the staff were excellent. The beaches and the ocean itself from this point of Cozumel are... More

We have now visited this site twice. We love it every time. The views are spectacular and you can walk down close to the sea in front of the light house. The museum is quite informative and interesting.

If you travel to Cozumel this lighthouse and the surrounding beaches should be on you to do list. There is a fee to go in but, it's well worth it. The view from up top, only 135 steps, is spectacular. Resist buying anything else while you're there or they'll rip you off. Just use good sense. there is a very... More
