Punta Sur is on the south end of the island. It costs $30 pesos under $3 US. There are sculptures to see but we really like walking the path along the cliffs and water. Very beautiful! It can get VERY hot so be prepared. after a nice walk and some pictures you can get lunch and/or a cervesa , there's... More

not much to really see there, other than two historic statues (of a huge iguana and goddess ixchel) and stunning views of the sunset and sunrise. There is a little park there with more modern statues but honestly, it didn't look appealing enough for me to even go in.

Take the time to visit Punta Sur. I had previously just seen the art/statues and kept driving. This time we stopped and walked the paths down to the ocean. Just breathtaking!

Nice little drive while exploring the island on our golf cart. Only a small Myan ruin, and some new sculptures. Of course little shops and a nice place to walk.

We initially were let down walking into Punta Sur, the metal statutes on the cliff are falling apart and it was really far from our hotel. As we walked through though, they were actively repairing the statutes and the views were amazing. There's a ton of iguanas everywhere, which are pretty much the island's version of squirrels. The trip was... More

if you rented a golf cart its a nice drive to Punta sur, great place for pictures and to spot lots of iguanas. there is a small fee to see the full site and if you climb down the path you can go into the beach which is really nice, although I'm not sure if that is allowed…lol

This beach offers a setting for some nice panoramic photos, but it is up high on several rocks. You cannot enter the water here. I only recommend to see this if you tour the whole island (on cheap scooters or golf cart) and stop on the way.. we were there for no more than 5 minutes. There is a seafood... More

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
