Punta Cometa, Mazunte
(4.9/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • I love this place, the sunset is amazing. A unique energy feels. Unfortunately people are very dirty and leave their cans of beer and wraps and this pollutes our ecosystems. Consciousness please.

  • 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.
  • Love the hike and the view😎
  • Take the pilgrimage, both sunrise and sunset. It's a divine place.
