(4.7/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
Explore the protected park of Punta Sur, encompassing reefs, beaches, lagoons, and low forests.

Take a hike alongside the ocean, observing sculptures corroding in the salty spray and frigate birds riding the breeze, before enjoying a cocktail in the restaurant. Keep your eyes peeled for the iguanas sunning themselves on the rocks. Put Punta Sur into our Isla Mujeres tour planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Punta Sur is the most remote of the Mexican Republic that offers a beautiful view from which you can see the colours of the sea and the sculptural space.

  • This is island mujeres...breath taking views of ocean and cliffs....great place to spend the day. Great beaches.
  • Don't miss Punta Sur, you'll love it. This is one the places I visited while at Isla Mujeres, this is at the top of the Island, the views up here are amazingly beautiful, breath taking, too bad I couldn't stay for sunset. The blue sea waters, the rocks, the Iguanas, an amazing place to visit while at Isla Mujeres, so relaxing, so peaceful. Once you visit you'll understand.
  • Take the walk down to the water. There are wonderful views and great photo opportunities. Make sure to wear good shoes, there are steep stairs in places.
  • Punta Sur is the Southernmost tip of Isla Mujeres and the Easternmost tip of Mexico. You can find the ruins of a Mayan temple, dedicated to Ixchel, the Mayan goddess of fertility, motherhood, the moon, water, medicine, love, rainbows & weaving. Also, there's a sculpture garden, created by 23 artists from Mexico and around the world.
  • Lovely beach, with calm waters. Great place to catch a memorable, picture worthy sunset.
