beautiful ocean views

We went there a couple of times during our 5 day stay. It is so beautiful, the waves were high and crashing against the rocks, just gorgeous.

In Punta Sur your are on the most southern point of isla mujeres. It's not a long drive to get there and it's lovely. A little white lighthouse and a nice restaurant. To get inside the park you pay a fee of about 30 Pesos. That's not too bad and it's worth! The space to the old Mayan temple is... More

This is an awesome walk along the side of the cliffs at the end of the mountain. You may be put off by the rusting "sculptures" strewn across the grassy area that covers your view at the entrance. And you may wonder whether it could possibly be worth your $3 to see what lies beyond. It is. Do it.

Beautiful area. Pay the 30 pesos to enter the area. After you walk in, take the path to the right to walk along the water. There is a cave you can walk up to. The scenery is incredible. Go to the point and walk down near the water. Breathtaking views. A must see

beautiful location, be the first in Mexico to see the sunrise. If you go later in the day, be sure to walk the pathway through and around the sculpture park, amazing ocean views and very inexpensive admission.

Beautifull place (entrance fee are 30 pesos, opened from 9am to 5pm). You can easily spend 1 - 2 hours here, tall cliffs and azure bays (no swimming). Very photogenic. At the end there´s a small temple of Maya Godess Ixchel that preserves magic energy. The place is very peacefull and very hot :) The statues are bit "out of... More

THIS is where you want to go to walk, do some ocean watching, look at cool art, have a drink on one of the greatest patios ever placed, and just chill. The "edge of the dawn" sign on the tip of Punta Sur is a "must see", just to say you've been there!

Punta Sur is absolutely beautiful! Great view & place to take pictures. Check out the iguanas & the ancient artifacts (which were recently very damaged in a hurricane). There were places to eat here that we didn't eat at, but they looked tastey. A few shops that sell the basic mexican souvenirs, they seem more expensive than at other shops... More

Pay the $3.00 fee to go beyond what is offered for free. The views are breathtaking and you will have wonderful photo ops. Walk the pathways provided to see different angles of the views. Hear the surf pound upon the rocks. Experience the beauty. It is just amazing! There are little shops you can explore as well as a restaurant... More

Don't miss this when you are on Isla Mujeres. You just need to sit down and take it all in. Worth all your time.
