The sculpture garden isn't to my style, being of the modern-abstract genre, but I'm sure many will enjoy it. What entrances me every time is the magnificence of this place of tempestuous, fluid boundaries between the rocks, the sky, and the ocean's vivid colors and wild surf. This sharp point of the island was held in reverence by the Maya... More

The sculpture gardens are worth a quick tour, more for the scenery than the art. The paths wind down along the Caribbean to the eastern most point in Mexico. The cafe at Punta Sur overlooks both the Caribbean and Cancun Bay...

If you get up before sunrise and head down to the point you will be blessed with an amazing sunrise at a magical place. Surf breaking on rocks, crabs skittering about in the first light of day and the knowledge that you were in the place the morning sun first hit land in Mexico that day. Stroll the walkways at...

Beautiful statues of the island goddess and iguana. Very neat to see both sides of the island at once. Rough waves to your right, calm beaches to your left. The ocean colours really pop from this location.

Punta sur is the very rocky side of Isla Mujeres. Not suitable for swimming here but a good photo op. The water is many shades of blue here. Unfortunately there is a massive amount of broken glass and garbage along the rock line and it kind of takes away from the beauty of the area. Plenty of large Iguanas in... More

Worth a visit while on isla. Absolutely gogeous views of the caribbean, lovely walk very close to the water. A bit touristy until you go on the nature walk to the point. Lovely!

Go to the end where you pay 30 pesos a person, there are way more walkways along the water than you think. Watch the awesome turquoise blue surf pound the rocks at the very southern tip of the island and walk along the path that leads up the west side of the island. But be careful can be a little...

The path along the ocean was the best part! There are a few different ones. Loved the view & being close to the crashing waves. There were some caves along the path which was great for some shade. Worth the $30 pesos. Lots of iguanas lounging around too.
