The first thing west at Landfall park was the tribute from the 1969 Olympics from Mexico. Our tour guide then told us the history of it. We then saw the beautiful crosses that commemorated Columbus first landing in the new world. Just beautiful!

One from Japan...Mexico Olympics 1968.....also a sunken monument under water. Amazing site...its been study for years now. Sad about the natives but very... More

This is noted as Christopher Columbus' landfall and is marked with a cross and a gift from the Spanish government. While the artifacts/markings are notable, the real showpiece here is the amazing beach. Sunsets are perfect at this spot. A must visit...

This is an absolutely gorgeous beach. If I had been at sea, eating wormy hardtack and an ancient pickled pig, I would have stopped. You should too. It's a great place to read the monument inscription, imagining that the beach may have changed in shape, but the general gestalt was the same. Imagine how it would have felt after stormy... More

One of the areas popular tour spots. You can almost miss it as you are driving out of town. Take a little time to read the land marks and take some pictures. :)
