great dive!! Not a lot of coral, but tons of sea turtles, large parrots and nice and shallow! We saw mating turtles, as well as lots of males and females in and around the coral!

I went here because of the reviews but it is basically a view over the sea that happens to be the spot where the first rays of sun hit Mexico. I have seen a lot more spectacular coastline in Italy and Croatia than this. I paid the $3 to look at the sculptures, which were okay, some have completely rusted/disappeared... More

There are two parts to the park. One part is free and gives a nice view of the southern coastline. For $3 you can go through the sculpture park and on walking trails down to the water. This was definitely worth it! At one point you can see the spot that gets the first rays of sunlight in all of... More

The sculptures were great - it would be better to have a little more information about the artist and the piece. The views on the coast are wonderful - be sure to walk down the stairs and walk along the water, just be careful in case the surface of the stones are slippery.

Gorgeous lookout over the Caribbean. Starkly rocky cliffs down to the crashing waves make for fantastic photos. Restroom is 5 pesos! Haven't tried the restaurant here, but it looks great.

Nothing better than swinging in a hammock with the Caribbean see breeze. Have had the pleasure of staying in a house located on the Caribbean side of Punta Sur. The 12-13 July Super Full Moon was breath-taking! The nearby metal sculpture garden is within walking distance. It is a unique artistic celebration. Take the full trek around Punta Sur for... More

We took our cart to the south end of the island for a bit of exploring. The views are breathtaking! Wander down the path to the beach - worth it!

Absolutely gorgeous! We could have watched the water come in at the tip of the island for hours. Very peaceful area, not crowded and great picture opportunities. Sculpture garden and ruins were okay, but $3 USD each was worth it for the view alone!,
