We rented a golf cart and drove the island from our hotel on Playa Norte to Punta Sur. It was a neat trip and took about 2 hours round trip, including the visit. Punta Sur does not look like much, but there is a restaurant to go with the Mayan history. There is an admission charge to see the Mayan... More

I had two things on my wish list when visiting Isla Mujeres... 1. Turtle Farm and 2. Punta Sur. I was able to check off both things on my list. We had lunch on Punta Sur and the views are just simply amazing!! We weren't able to make the walk as we were hot and tired from our trip around... More

Unbelievably beautiful! We need to return when it isn't quite so hot so we can stay longer and enjoy it more! Great walking paths and a great photo opp with every step.

It is well worth the money ($5) to enjoy the cliff walk, the view is great. We make it a point of doing this every visit to the island.

I like Garrafon de Castilla a lot better, you get to seat right by the water, and is Beautiful, you get service right to your chair and there is a restaurant, a place to rinse before leaving..... Way better than Garrafon Park, that it's very expensive and sucks all over

My Bf and I took a tour here in the morning and we were the 1st one there. We took a golf cart to Punta Sur from El Milagro Hotel. It was a fun drive and many things to see along the way. You can walk down the stairs and walk along the cliff. The most beautiful & peaceful scenery... More

A visit to Punta Sur is a MUST!!! The views are absolutely breathtaking!! If you are visiting Isla or just out exploring, be sure to stop at Ixchel where you can really take in the amazing views!!

This is a place to go to hike - My sister says go first thing in the morning and watch the sun come up. This is quite the setting - Bring your camera - Can get windy at times - Enjoy

While touring the island on the golf cart, this is a quick and easy stop. We walked along the left side (free) and took pictures from the gorgeous cliffs. You can also pay $30 pesos to go down and see the very small ruins, but we didn't bother. We'd seen serveral ruins in other places, so we just skipped it.... More
