“Nice walk”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Punta Cometa is a nice little reserve that you can walk to from the center of town. The trail could use interpretive signage about the point's history and nature, and some designated rest spots. There are nice views of the ocean and the shoreline, and I hear the sunsets are spectacular, but I wouldn't stay there past sunset without a flashlight because the trails aren't good everywhere or marked. Lots of locals go fishing here, too.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

No dislikes....just enjoy the miracle. You meet local fisherman on the way and you can buy their catch also. Make sure you have your camera on hand, it is incredible.

“Yakuzi and sunset”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

Punta Cometa is 10 minutes walking from the cementery near Mazunte. If you go in the afternoon you can take a bath in the Yakuzi ( which is a small natural swiming pool where the waves make a yakuzi effect ) and see the beautifull sunset ......sometimes is possible to see dolphins or whales.....i went many times there with friends and girl friend....i really reccommend.....
