Punta Cometa, Mazunte

(4.9/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Venture to Punta Cometa, a high, rocky cape with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean. Standing at the southernmost point of Oaxaca, this spot is renowned for its sunset view, so expect to see other tourists during that time of day. Trails among grassy shrubs and cacti line the cliffs' edge; these eventually lead you to adjacent beaches. While here, be on the lookout for migrating whales and flocks of pelicans. Use our Mazunte holiday planner to arrange your visit to Punta Cometa and other attractions in Mazunte.

  • Excelent views for sunset, not too much people. Healty ambience all around nice people and places. Much recommended!  more »
  • Don't forget to stay 20 minutes after the sun goes down, that's where the colors are revealed...! Provide a lamp for the return ;)

  • Beautiful viewpoint, perfect for romantic evenings watching the sunset. Just watch out for snakes on the way back though once it gets dark!
  • This is probably my best place in the world. I've been there at least ten times, and every one of them it continues to amaze me.
  • Excelentes vistas y buena aventura.
