I have been taking people to the north side of the island since I was a kid, years after still a non developed area and I truly hope it stays like that for many more years to come!The Light house was build in the early 1900's and has witness various hurricanes, Gilbert in 88 and Wilma in 05 being the most hazardous.the light house is still operation but very few people have access to it due to the conditions of the road. Mostly a military base from time to times and few local fishermen will visit making of it a magic secluded spot rarely seen in Cozumel

Great place easily reachable. It was nice to visit the Lighthouse and observe the surrounding beauty of the beaches and ocean.

Good staff to inform you of the history of the lighthouse. Beautiful views from the top! The climb is high and does get smaller as you go up but the views and pictures you will get once there are worth it.

Great views of Cozumel from the lighthouse. Not a climb for the faint hearted. A little museum detailing the lighthouse history. Also a great place to hike and see salt water crocodiles.

Our family has had many trips to Cozumel since 1999 and this was the best tour we've ever done. We already knew Adrian was a great host from our experience at his restaurant, Especias in past years so we were very excited to take his unique tour to the north point of the island and Adrian did not disappoint.

We just returned from Cozumel where we had a wonderful vacation. During that time our daughter and son-in-law, myself and husband and my son-in-law's parents all where privileged to go on the tour with Adrian. Our kids had used him before on a previous trip so they were very anxious to book him again. Everything they said about the excursion... More

If you aren't the typical tourist, if you want a unique experience, if you are truly looking to have an adventure, then do not pass up this rare opportunity to see a whole different side of Cozumel, Mexico.

Adrian took myself, husband and friends on a true adventure and learning experience. I highly recommend this, you will not be disappointed and will tell everyone what you learned and experienced.
