Punta Sur

A tour to the island of Cozumel without visiting Punta Sur Eco Beach Park is not experiencing the best of this place! With a spectacular panoramic view from the top of Punta Sur, the turquoise colors of the sea blend into the green of the abundant forest. In addition, you may have a crocodile sighting in their wild habitat, a cultural museum of navigation, and Mayan ruins in honor of the goddess Ixchel, deity of fertility and medicine. The tide is usually low, so many people take the opportunity to snorkel or swim in the sea.
