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

Cab tour to the other side of island

This was amazing and beautiful. The light house was awesome and the view from up top was gorgeous. Our cab driver was great, he knew a lot of history, best part of our trip.

On January 12th, my son and I hired Omar Abarca to guide us to Punta Molas. I had researched the trip for years and finally committed this return trip to getting this off the list. We have been coming to Cozumel for the last 20 years and have seen many changes. The trip to Punta Molas was an opportunity to... More

Was okay. Climbed up the lighthouse very tight. Vendors selling black corral items. Pretty view but not much else to do there. The museum was interesting to walk through.

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

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
