Go down to the walk by the ocean-very special. Outdoor art gallery was so very inventive and inspiring. Hats off to the park! I expected lots of ruins and statues but was pleasantly surprised at how tasteful and peaceful everything was.

Take the trip to Punta Sur to enjoy the sunset -- on the way back explore the Gloria neighborhood (eat at Bastos Grill!). Bring bug spray if its not breezy!

On the south end of Isla Mujeres is Punta Sur, a unique spot on the island. Getting there by golf cart is the way to go because you are on your own time and you don't have to wait for a taxi to take you back to town. The restaurant and bar overlooking Punta Sur to the south, the Caribbean... More

Everyone takes a golf cart around the island. Go ahead and make the stop for the great view. You don't need to pay the 3 dollars just to run down to the end. The view is wonderful just in the free area.

this is a nice place to get away from the north end of the island. There are great views. There is a $3/30 peso fee per person to walk out to the point and see the Mayan ruin (a small house sized structure) and some modern statuary up close, but we had already been to three sites on this trip....

It is a fun drive in a golf cart to see the southern point of the island. We were disappointed that they charged $10 US just to walk down the path about 100 yds to see the actual ruin site. The views from this area are worth the drive..

This is the second best part of Isla Mujeres after Playa Norte. Great views and photo opportunities including a little sculpture park which cost $3 or 30 pesos to enter and allows you to see more of the coast and waves from a lower level. There is also the Mayan Temple Ixchel at the very end of cliff before you... More

A beautiful and interesting area. The artwork wasn't very impressive, but the walkway, the ocean views and the fascinating rock formations were beautiful. I would actually have liked to know more about the rocks and how they formed. There's also a sign stating that this is the furthest east point in all of Mexico, a fun tid-bit. Plus there's a...

Amazing, different view than the North side. Not much to do but walk around and take in the scenery though. About $5 to enter and they charge you to use the bathrooms. This is always one of our destinations on our golf cart tours around the island...worth it!
