We did this hike around sunset, and it was amazing. It is definitely worth doing if you are in Mazunte and the surrounding area. There are some hills to walk up, but the walk is generally easy and the trail is well marked. You will get beautiful views of Mazunte and the Pacific Ocean. It was also cool to see... More

We walked to Punta Cometa last night in flip flops and it was a breeze. Maybe not recommended for the older lot. We found this tidal pool and jumped in which is like a real spa when the water cascades in and creates natural bubbles. From there we climbed up to the cliff tops and watched the sunset. It really...

the best view of a sunset that you will never forget. It is a 15 minute easy hike and worth every step. Get there early so you can enjoy the changing of the light

My only regret is that we left our hotel a bit late and only arrived once the sun had almost set. I recommend leaving around 2 hours before sunset from wherever you are staying in Mazunte to have enough time there to appreciate the amazing view before it gets dark. Getting there is easy. You just take the street called... More

You must not miss this if visiting the Mazunte-San Agustinillo-Zipolite area. Moderate 20-30 minute hike (hills) out to a scenic vista overlooking Playa Mermijita. Watch the sunset here, but arrive early, because it can get busy.

Book a taxi to take you round trip because it is far from Mazunte and surrounding resort towns. You can take a collective mini truck to the crossroads and walk the mile or so during the day if you choose to go there for lunch, but DO NOT walk to and fro after sunset. There are bandidos out there, folks.
