Punta Sur, Isla Mujeres

4.7
Explore the protected park of Punta Sur, encompassing reefs, beaches, lagoons, and low forests. The site also includes an ancient Mayan ruin, with folklore suggesting it once acted as a whistling building that warned of approaching hurricanes. 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. Plan to visit Punta Sur during your Isla Mujeres vacation using our convenient Isla Mujeres trip tool .

  • Take a golf cart or taxi to this park on south end of island. There are some small shops as well as ice cream and beer. It is very much worth the 30 pesos per person to do the art walk and trails. There are stairs that will take you to paths down along the water which are very beautiful to see (a must). Depening on waves, some will crash against rocks and splash the walkways which can be refreshing! There are also some neat little caves. Add this to your to do list while on the island. Please like if you find this helpful.
  • The view - you're paying for the view. It's 30 pesos or $3 to get in. Beautiful views, incredibly strong waves crashing against cliffs make for a stunning display. Very nice place to hang out for a bit. (You cannot get in the water)
  • A must visit place in the Isla Mujeres. The cliff and trail road around the cliff is amazing.
  • The most beautiful place in this part of Mexico, without a doubt. The 30 pesos tariff to enter is a mere pittance when compared with the views you get, especially when the sea wild and the sky half-darkened by clouds. The ruins are small and lackluster, but the many paths downward and close to the rocks are worth exploring.
  • Pristine views from the Southernmost tip of Isla Mujeres. Must must visit. Enjoy the seafood, the Mayan temple , the iguanas at the edge of the rocks, and the ocean views that will spell-bind you. The $3 entry is definitely worth it and you can take the pathway and walk till the end till you reach the edge of the ocean-line within the cove. Enjoy!
