Best snorkeling and whale watching on the Oaxaca coast. Clear water, numerous tropical fish, moray eels, whales -- a quiet place few people even know about. You'll need a vehicle and don't expect great services here. You can boat with a local fisherman (cheap to see whales, manta rays, etc.) Amazing.

A large group of people go out to this punta every evening to watch the sun set at the pacific ocean. The colours were amazing. Highly recommend - good break from lazing around at the beach all day.

Highly recommend. Nice trip. We rode a scooter after a day trip to Laguna Ventanilla (also recommend). Be careful of the waves though, I dont recommend swimming.

Amazing views, weather, and atmosphere, we had lunch in a place called PUNTA SUR, the best food we tried along this part of the coast of oaxaca, definitely a place to go back to.

If you are in the area even for short time this is a must-see. The hike is not short so prepare, if you want to go all the way to the end of the peninsula. Wear bug spray and go at a cool time of day.

Amazing location for sunrise and sunset! Friends and families, locals and tourists all enjoy the view. It is worth the walk up. Make sure to bring a light to come back down after sunset.

We visited this place on an early afternoon, in low season, so it was a bit deserted, and the pathway a little difficult and risky, but maybe that's us being city youngsters, (especially my boyfriend, but who was breathless by the time we got there!). It is a breathtaking view, nonetheless.

amazing view, and great place to go meditate in the morning or see the sunset. Multiple paths going up from the beach or main road make it a nice 30 minute hike.

Super trail for any age and the sunset was spectacular! would have liked to have gone further to the absolute peak but seemed a bit dangerous with massive drops! Asking those returning it looked worse than it was. Lovely atmosphere and so much to see on the walk
