This is a place to go to hike - My sister says go first thing in the morning and watch the sun come up. This is quite the setting - Bring your camera - Can get windy at times - Enjoy

While touring the island on the golf cart, this is a quick and easy stop. We walked along the left side (free) and took pictures from the gorgeous cliffs. You can also pay $30 pesos to go down and see the very small ruins, but we didn't bother. We'd seen serveral ruins in other places, so we just skipped it.... More

We were on the island for most of the day to swim with dolphins and we inquired at the information booth at Dolphin Discovery about going downtown shopping. The gentleman suggested we ask a cabbie to take us for a tour and we did. We paid 30 $$ and went to tour the ruins and it was a mere 3$... More

We went to the Punta Sur twice. Once just to see what it was all about and once as a part of the garrafones experience. Rather than pay to see the outdoor artwork and the mayan ruin get it as a part of the garrafone experience with kayaking, snorkeling, an infinity pool, etc. The Punta Sur also has a spot... More

This should be a stop for everyone. Keep going past the ruins and take the steps down towards the water. Amazing wrap around views and scenery!

Went and visited . You have to pay 30 pesos to go and look at the sculptures which are a bit rusty. But the walk to the cliff of the dawn is lovely.

It's worth the few pesos to go in. The modern sculptures are not great, but the view and the cliffs are. You can get down to the water - I'd recommend bringing snorkelling gear if you have it. The only thing is there isn't much shade, so be prepared!

The colors of the sea and Rocky cliffs are amazing. Simply a wonderful place to enjoy part of your day. Well worth the money and definitely has the WOW affect. Not a lot of shade but no worries as the sheer the beauty is worth being hot

The views from this place were beautiful. I didn't really understand the sculptures everywhere, but that's okay. Our concierge had given us some history of the site before we got there, so that was very helpful. We didn't spend a lot of time there, maybe 30 minutes walking around I guess. However, we did sit at the restaurant/bar about 2... More

Drive up early in the morning, hop the small wall, and watch the sunrise on the eastern most point of the Mexican Empire. Great way to start your day in Isla Mujeres...
