The most Eastern point in Mexico is Punta Sur. The taxi ride from the ferry terminal cost 88 pesos and the admission cost was 30 pesos. This gets you access to a park with modern sculptures and the ruins of a temple honouring Ixchel, the Goddess of the Moon. The highlight for me was walking around the cliff and seeing... More

There are free and pay areas here, and all worthwhile. There are some shops and restrooms, and a nice restaurant with views on to the sculpture park, cliffs, and ocean beyond. We took in one meal there and while it wasn't our favorite meal, it was good and not too much more expensive for being in a tourist spot. For... More

Only 30 peso's per visitor and well worth it also! Very nice place to get great pictures. A lot of walking and steps, paths are right up to cliff so you have to be careful with little ones. Well worth a trip to visit!

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
