The best view on Isla Mujeres. The best option is to rent a golf cart and truck to Punta Sur for a day trip. We visited at night also, but you couldn't see much at night and it is closed to the public. It is the most Eastern Point of the island and all of Mexico. It is cool to... More

We visited Punta Sur in the late afternoon after a golf cart jaunt around the island. It has beautiful views (including of frigate birds flying overhead) and the little ruins. There was a place there where we enjoyed a beer and the view.

Although we only spent a day in Cozumel (we were on a cruise ship) we tried to maximize our visit and took a Jeep Wrangler Excursion- and we were able to drive all over Punta Sur. Included in the excursion was lunch on the beach and snorkeling. We also stopped at El Farro (a beautiful lighthouse) and walked all the... More

Beautiful at sunrise or sunset. Best time I believe is sunset for pictures. If there is a wedding going on it is fun to watch. One can spent an hrs or several here.

The view here is breathtaking! However, there are hundreds of Iguanas in this area and I am terrified of them! But the view is a must see... Do not, absolutely DO NOT miss this spot during your trip to Isla Mujeres

We went to this beach second...it was beautiful with amazing views. It was a little bit rockier that the other beach but still great.

Good day trip. Not much there for ruins but the history behind them is interesting. The views are great.

A lot of people seem to be focusing on the wrong things for Punta Sur, forget the restaurant, the food is sub-par and the cost is very high as people have said. Instead, pay the $3USD entry to see the outdoor art gallery, and take the steps on the right down to a secluded little beach that is by far... More

It was a beautiful view of the ocean and a great place to cool down. The food, beer, and shopping was a little pricey but it is the better part of the island in our opinion.

We expected Punta Sur to be where we could rent boats to go to the underwater statues right off the coast. But there is nothing there other than a low-key lighthouse tower, a row of local chotchkee shops and a restaurant on the back side. There is no beach, just a rocky cliff. Our teens loved the golf cart ride... More
