We stopped by because of the beautiful ocean view to have drinks. We waited and waited and no one came over to our table. It was about 2:00 p.m., so not the height of the lunch crowd. The family at the table next to us angrily told the waiter, "We ordered sandwiches an hour and a half ago. Forget it, just let us pay for these beers." And they left. We waited and never saw another waiter, so my husband went to the bar and got 2 drinks. Then, there was some big production to get change and he was waiting at the bar for about 15 minutes to get change. Something was seriously wrong at this restaurant that day. But the views were great.

We rented a golf cart and headed straight here one morning, and it was really enjoyable. The sculpture garden is laid out well and it's interesting to see the art so exposed to the elements. We walked down the stairs to the Blue Eye cave and then down to the little pathway that takes you right along the sea - wear something you don't mind getting wet, because the waves will sometimes crash right over you! The views are stunning and there was some fun birdwatching too. There is a small bar with snacks for when you're done (good micheladas, and some of the best calamari we've had). If you or your family need to use the bathroom here it's 5 pesos, but if you've gotten something at the bar they will give you a ticket to go in for free. There's also the requisite gift shop and also an ice cream shop. Don't forget to go around to the big iguana statue; there are some artisans selling wares there and you can get more sea views.

The view along the walkways are certainly worth the 30 peso admission charge, and should not be missed. Enjoy the eastern most point in Mexico. But skip the overpriced nachos at the restaurant, unless you like Cheese-Wiz. The nachos up the road at Captain Dulche are much better, and will buy a day at their beautiful beach resort.

It's well worth the several dollar admission to see the views from punta sur. Be sure to go down the stairs and and around the edge of the sea. It's also worth getting up earl to watch sunrise from the free overlook area here.

The place has spectacular views, nice trails, a friendly shop, and will provide some of the best photos of your location. The ruins are interesting, the geology is very unique, and it was uncrowded on a day when the downtown and beach were a zoo.
