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

Well kept lighthouse with museum at the base. 135 steps to the top and the view from the top is excellent. Small charge to get into the park and it is closed on Sundays.

This lighthouse is a nice workout to the top. Once you get up there the view is magnificent. Bring your camera or at least take a panoramic shot with your iPhone as it might be the highest part of the island. Amazing views of the lagoon side as well as the ocean side. After I walked down from the top... More

We had a great visit to the lighthouse and the park. Like all lighthouses the view from the top is teriffic, but Cdlerain Lighthouse really has it's own special vibe. We also stopped by a new restaurant in the park, Papito's Beach Club. It was a great choice for a quick and affordable lunch.

The walk up the light house isn't too bad. About 140 steps. Nice view. The naval museum is a nice little addition. The entrance price was high. Don't buy stuff here unless you have too much money.

This is one of the most beautiful sights you can see on the Isla! Like others have said, lots of steps but once you get up there you will be glad you did! They also film Corona commercials there as well which is neat

We took a package trip which included a tour of a Tequila brewery, a Mayan Temple and ended up at the Punta Celerain Lighthouse. We drove a Polaris vehicle on the very bumpy roads along the shore line, the views were amazing, tranquil and enjoyed a view that would be hard to replicate anywhere. Well worth the time and minimum... More

The admission fee is worth the gorgeous sea side drive. Roll the windows down and take in the smell and sound of the Caribbean along the primitive, untouched beach. The ocean on this side of the island is gorgeous and worth the trip to see. Stop along the way for pictures as you approach the lighthouse. Enjoy old ruin buildings... More

Went to see the light house as part of a Jeep excursion of the island. Really enjoyed it! It was amazing seeing how on one side the ocean was smooth as glass and on the other it was really choppy!! The stairs were a rough though, don't recommend them for the faint of heart lol! It was well worth the... More

The guy at the main gate gave us a price for just seeing the lighthouse but was WAAAY off on the conversion from USD to Pesos. 8 USD is NOT 280 Pesos... Didnt even go in- what a rip off. Heard it was great but Im not paying $21.30 when you originally said 8 but cant do math. Thats the... More
