Punta Cometa, Mazunte

(4.9/5 based on 320+ 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.
