#1 of 9 in Sightseeing in Isla Mujeres
Ruin Tourist Spot
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. Put Punta Sur into our Isla Mujeres tour planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • What a sight. Everything about this is beautiful. You can enjoy so many levels of the rocks and the sea. Note: it is cheaper to enter if you pay with pesos. Such a relaxing place. Breathe, take it all...  more »

  • Beautiful views, iguanas, and a few souvenir shops with good prices. Worth the stop. Plenty of parking and a pergola that provides some shade.
  • The ruins here aren't impressive, but the art placed around this area make up a little for that. If possible, do take the stairs down and walk the path closer to the water. We really enjoyed our short time here.
  • Very beautiful location to visit while on Isla Mujeres.
  • A beautiful park with local artists' sculptures. If you're able, at the point, take the stairs and walk along the water.
  • It's a beautiful place. Some of the clearest watets I've ever seen.
