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.

  • It is a beach which have to walk a bit to get that is accessed by a few trails, it is advisable to take repellent of mosquitoes and a lamp to return without problem, since if there is no Moon filled the way back will be very dark. The beauty of the place is worth it worth the walk.

  • It is a must-see if you're going to Mazunte. The views from the mountain are wonderful, and there is a part from which you can go down and forms a natural jacuzzi and you can get to swim there.

  • Reach is a little complicated, it takes good shoes and water. It is a rise in terrazeria on the Hill. The road is full of pebbles and there are many ravines, so be careful. As you wear your gps map offline, since it is not well marked and you can take more complicated paths. However, like life, the goal of the road is magical. During the evening, the view is beautiful and if you manage to get to kite beach is an exclusive place, alone and not for nothing.

  • 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.
