Worth a visit if you have a golf cart rental, I wouldn't get a cab there, not a place to spend many hours, just a quick photo, giant iguana statue, beautiful views. A couple of souvenir shops. Worth going for the cliff top views. Stunning. Take some pasos in case you need to use the bathroom.

Punta Sur is a great place to see the sunrise and the sunset. There is a nice walkway with many large sculptures located throughout the park. The walkway that goes to the water level is impressive. The restaurant has good drinks and food and the staff is very friendly.An easy taxi ride or golf cart ride from downtown Isla Mujeres.

This was worth the $3 entrance fee. The views are breathtaking! This is must see while visiting Isla. There is restaurant/bar that overlooks the ocean. We didn't eat at Punta Sur but the drinks were good.

Live to travel to Punta Sur when we visit Isla Mujeres! It is a bit more run down than it used to be but the sights are amazing and I love the new iguana statue they have paying tribute to all the iguanas that grace the cliffs... Some of the best views on Isla Mujeres...

Punta Sur is a popular destination for day trippers commandeering their golf carts around Isla. You'll find a restaurant, souvenir shops, the best coconut ice cream on the island (in the store, NOT the parking lot) and an amazing flagstone walk way, at sea level, that brings you face to face with the competing currents and spectacular eddies. It is... More

We debated whether we wanted to pay the 3.00 entrance fee to walk around and look at the statues. It was much cheaper to pay with pesos so we did that. It was one of the best decisions ever. The statues were unique and interesting. All of the placards were in Spanish only but still very interesting to view. We... More

Definitely worth the trip! Hop in a scooter or gold cart and head south to Punta Sur. My wife and I are on our honeymoon and decided to visit Ixchel, the Goddess of Fertility! The ocean is turquoise blue...beautiful!

Gorgeous site - very touching to see offerings - even "milagros" at the ruins of the site of rituals to "IXCEL" - commonly referred to as "goddess" of the sea, fertitlity, the moon and rainbows.
