Punta Sur is a must visit on any trip to Isla. Located at the easternmost point in Mexico, Punta Sur is the first location in Mexico to see the sun rise in the morning. There is a mayan temple dedicated to Ixchel here (sun goddess). You can pay $3 to wander down the sculpture gardens, see the temple, and explore... More

Great photos from Punta Sur. It's also the most eastern point in Mexico. Only worth visiting if you're in the area or have a golf buggy. $3 entrance fee apparently marked on a whiteboard with a kid standing there collecting it. I never paid because I was part of Royal Gaffron

Worth the drive! If you hire a cab, golf cart, or bike, drive up the road on the east side of the island. Stop along the way for some nice blue views. entry was 30 pesos. there are some metal sculptures, and an elaborate walkway system that takes you down to the "eastern most point of Mexico...to catch the first...

We rented a golf cart and rode to this southern most point on Lsla. My travel friend let us leisurely enjoy the unique but badly rusted sculptures in the Punta Sur Park then lead us to the southern most point. 'Here's the real treat...' and for nearly an hour we walked the steps & trails along the cliff sides, through... More

Beautiful view of where the Caribbean meets the Gulf, well worth the rental of a Golf Cart to drive out here. Stop at the top at the little bar/restaurant for some of the best ceviche in Cancun.

My fiance and I rented a golf cart for the day to drive around the island. Based on Trip Advisor, we came down here, paid the few bucks for entrance and loved it. We ended up here toward the end of the afternoon, checked out the cool sculptures, then made our way down a set of steps closer to the... More

Don't get me wrong Punta Sur is very nice and a must see. But from 1995 the first time we were here, it has lost some of its charm, from a small lighthouse with a nice Mayan gentleman selling coke and shells out of a little hut, small worn paths to explore on, to me it was more of the... More

You're going to need it for all the stellar views this place offers. Dramatic rocky cliffs over the ocean, sculptures, the view! I rented a golf cart from Gomar's and drove down. Easy and scenic drive down the island, and this place is beautiful. It was nice to sit and reflect and just listen to the waves for a while.... More

Well worth the three dollar admission price. This is the place where the Mayans believed goddess Ixchel lived. First place in Mexico where light first strikes.
