Beautiful Scenery

The water is lovely and we especially liked watching all of the sea turtles swim in the turquoise water.

Pay the minimal amount to visit the southern most tip of the island. The views are incredible! I think it is the most beautiful part of the island....except for Playa Norte. :) :)

Southern most tip of the island, and there is a tiny Mayan ruin on the headland point. The entire headland is littered with abstract art sculptures, with pathways between them and benches to sit and admire or pass the time. There is a small 30 peso fee presumably for the traditional Mayan landowners. The outlook to the ocean on all... More

We took a golf cart and toured the island while staying on Isla Mujeres. Punta Sur is the southernmost tip of the island with a quaint little shopping area, restaurant and smallish Mayan ruin. The best attraction is the gorgeous view of the blue waters. We had a couple of beers in the outdoor restaurant and enjoyed the beauty.

We have always stopped by here for many years , but never paid to go to edge of the ruins. What a pleasant surprise. The views were amazing. Walking trails all around the cliffs, great views and picture spots. Turtle mating season at the time , so we saw many there at the time...

This was our second trip to Isla Mujeres, and our second time to Punta Sur. It is a visually stimulating area of the island. It has a weird outdoor museum with strange art, which you pay $3 to get in to. They have a small ancient temple ruin and a cool path that takes you down by the ocean. Very... More

I loved this park. You have great views and get to see cool rock formations and the sea if you go around the whole park and walk down all of the steps around the park. You may need to be in decent shape to get the full experience but overall there are great views here of the natural landscape. It... More

I definitely think this is worth a trip...not expensive at all and such a beautiful area. The ruins themselves are very small and I didn't find much information about the Mayans or about the "rock shrines" that were everywhere and built by just stacking rocks and obviously not ancient...but what do they mean? I built one anyway :) Even with... More
