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

It was a great start to our vacation and life-long friendships with Adrian. Touring rarely-seen parts of the island, snorkeling a ship... More

We had the most perfect day imaginable!! The ocean was absolutely beautiful with all the shades of blues and greens. It was incredible to be on the non-tourist side of the island and really be able to enjoy the amazing view and snorkel on the reef without so many people around. Adrian is the best tour guide there is! He... More

Let me first start with how amazing it is to go somewhere and not see any tourists on this tour!!!!🌴 Just so peaceful and absolutely gorgeous ocean water!!!! 🌅 Lighthouse is very interesting and only accessible by boat. Snorkeling is always fun, especially when you have an opportunity to see things rarely seen by others on the very tip of... More

Although we sacrificed a day of diving, our tour with Adrian was well worth it. We had a good time "power snorkeling" and toured the lighthouse with amused armed guards in tow. After a sandwich and a beer, we beached the Victoria II just south of the lighthouse and trecked across the silver lake to a Mayan sound house for... More

To make it short, He did not show. I made a reservation with Adrian to go on the boat tour for the day. Two weeks before we were to arrive he e-mails me and says he is going to Florida, but has a friend Adolfo who will take us on the boat tour. I say OK, no probs, lets do... More

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.
