I have been taking people to the north side of the island since I was a kid, years after still a non developed area and I truly hope it stays like that for many more years to come!The Light house was build in the early 1900's and has witness various hurricanes, Gilbert in 88 and Wilma in 05 being the most hazardous.the light house is still operation but very few people have access to it due to the conditions of the road. Mostly a military base from time to times and few local fishermen will visit making of it a magic secluded spot rarely seen in Cozumel

Today we went on the Punta Molas lighthouse tour with Adrian and it was absolutely Amazing! Adrian took such good care of us the whole time (7 hours)! It is a very long boat ride from town to the northern most point of the island, but the scenery is magestic. Once we reached the top of the lighthouse, Adrian gave... More

Booked a boat trip with Adrian (search "Adrian Cozumel" on FB). Awesome trip. Climbed this lighthouse (102 steps). Awesome view of the reef. The next day we went to Punta Sur and climbed that lighthouse (132 steps).

OK, let me preface this review by saying that I LOVE Light Houses. (This no doubt comes from growing up six hundred miles from the nearest salt water). This is better seen as part of a general tour of the Northern Part of the Island. This is the part of the Island where the thousands of daily cruise ships passengers... More

Adrian was referred to us by a good friend. All I can really say is WOW! As soon as you meet Adrian it seems like you've know him for a lifetime, and really cares about making the experience exciting and memorable. I cannot say enough about the tour and cannot wait for my next trip back to cozumel and do... More

North Side Boat tour and snorkel trip was amazing! We had so much fun exploring that part of Cozumel. Adrian was exceptional host and was very easy to communicate and book. We did that online before we got there. He watched weather and picked a perfect day! Waters were like glass and it was like being in a looking glass.... More

Contacted Adrian at Eagle Tours (motorcycle rentals). Adrian was born and raised on Cozumel, fifth generation, and is an excellent person to know. He offers a 5-6 hour boat tour around the northern portion of Cozumel. The tour includes snorkeling and equipment, lunch with water, sodas, beer and a trip to the Point Molas lighthouse. Adrian's boat held the five... More

This tour was the perfect balance of fun activities and relaxation. Being able to see a part of the island that can only be reached by boat was such a treasure. We swam in the clearest green water without another boat in sight. It was beautiful. Then we went to the lighthouse, saw the gorgeous views, hunted for shells, and... More

We came as tourists and left as friends! My first trip to Cozumel was amazing in every way and Adrian was such a big part of that! Our first day was spent on this tour, which was amazing! It was a great start to our vacation and life-long friendships with Adrian. Touring rarely-seen parts of the island, snorkeling a ship... More

We had the most perfect day imaginable!! The ocean was absolutely beautiful with all the shades of blues and greens. It was incredible to be on the non-tourist side of the island and really be able to enjoy the amazing view and snorkel on the reef without so many people around. Adrian is the best tour guide there is! He... More

Let me first start with how amazing it is to go somewhere and not see any tourists on this tour!!!!🌴 Just so peaceful and absolutely gorgeous ocean water!!!! 🌅 Lighthouse is very interesting and only accessible by boat. Snorkeling is always fun, especially when you have an opportunity to see things rarely seen by others on the very tip of... More
