    Punta Sur MUST VISIT
    Punta Sur is a beautiful location to visit. Although, it has changed over the years, the restoration looks incredible. It cultural with gorgeous and amazing views. Must visit Punta Sur, it's worth one's time, and your support goes toward the upkeep of the park.

    So beautiful
    The scenery at Punta Sur is absolutely breathtaking. An absolute must see when at Isla. The only thing to note is that if you are going to take the sidewalk route close to the water, there are some areas that have eroded away. I felt safe but others did not. And yes, you have to pay to use the restrooms and iguanas were all over the place which was neat.

    Gorgeous!
    Rented a golf cart for our tour of Isla Mujeres so we could explore and this site was exceptional! So glad we made the trip to this end of the island. So beautiful…they have shops to buy souvenirs and cold beverages - which you need on a hot day! Several photo op locations!

    Panorama that is hard to forget
    The views were fabulous and the color of the ocean was turquoise. The paths let you explore many levels of the park and also descend to the surf. There are not handrails on all paths so it’s not safe for small children without supervision. You can walk here from some hotels or take a taxi (they come by frequently) for 150 pesos. If you love scenery and ocean views this should not be missed.

    Punta Sur- the very East point of Mexico
    Most beautiful scenery as well as history. You will need to pay $6 entry per person to walk the pathways/ coastline. There is free area to take pics, but to see the actual tip of the island you gotta pay.

    A Special Place
    Punta Sur is beyond words. It’s a place you just have to experience. Rich in history and beauty, this is a must do while visiting Isla Mujeres!! I recommend going first thing in the morning to avoid the heat and crowds. Take your time and enjoy each moment. You will be glad you did.

    Gorgeous view
    Gorgeous view! My favourite photo was an iguana on a rock lounging above the rocky waves below. F@&$ the ruins. I’m from a tourist town too and maybe I’ll do it one day, strolled down the path below- maybe if you’re cool and nice enough a local will give you some hints on some “hidden” spots. Amazingly inner sarcastic wit against a lot of really stupid people playing with boobs of statues and being just lame on an island that stands for much much more in terms of women. Now there’s some free entertainment.

    Might as well
    Get there before 10:30. We had the place to ourselves almost but when we left around 11 huge groups started pouring in. There's a lot of walking with no shade. The temple itself is small and but the statues and the stairs going down to the water is a good time. You'll be in and out in less than 45 minutes.

    More than worth the price of admission
    We spent an interesting 90 minutes or so here. The statues are all good (though the QR code explanations aren't ideal for cheapskate foreigners who have turned off data roaming) and the walkways down and around the cliffs give some excellent views. Not for the faint-hearted though - there are few guard-rails and the concrete path is broken in a few places. The views make up for the moments of anxiety

    Worth the $6
    Definitely worth the cost of admission. Well kept national park along the south end of isla mujeres. There is a small ruin of a Mayan pyramid. The walking path down to the water and along the coastline was stunning. Take the steps down! $6 entry fee that is cash only

Took our golf cart all over the island after staying in Playa Norte. Punta Sur is a beautiful spot - worth visiting during your stay on Isla Mujeres.

The best sunrise on the island. Walk the paths, check out the statues, take a ton of pics and vids ... But that sunrise will take your breath away.

A Jeep or Buggy is recommended - the road is really rough. We did not stop for the alligators but we saw a lot of visitors that did. We spent some time at the lighthouse which was really fun. There is a small museum and a tequila tasting. We bought fresh Margaritas in locally made hand painted cups. On up the road there are 3 beach clubs. We did not realize this and ended up stopping at the first one. The water was nice and the beach was covered in coral washing ashore, very cool!

Punta Sur is the best spot to watch the sunrise! The waves crashing on the rocks and the sun coming up was beautiful. We went everyday!

An easy 25 min golf cart ride from the ferry/port, while it costs $6 usd pp to enter, it was a great way to mix in just a tidbit of Mexican culture/history/& nature into our beach vacation. Aside from seeing the statues, there is a well-paved trail which goes down the side of the cliff & gives stunning views of the turquoise Caribbean Sea.

A perfect place to see the sunrise while as Isla Mujeres. This is a beautiful place and one not to miss in this area. Wife and I came to watch the sunrise and then walked through the park's sculptures. The views are amazing!

We visited Punta Sur based on a number of FB recommendations and it’s the #2 thing to do on Trip Advisor! I usually capture sunsets, I’m not awake for many sunrises, I kept putting this off until today, I’m glad I got up and saw the sunrise at this beautiful spot. There is a lot of history here and I would pay the $6 per person to talk the path and get a little closer to the cliffs/water. We enjoyed so much we are going back tonight to see the sun go down!

Exceptional views and beautiful seaside scenery. Some local vendors to visit and great photo ops. Bathrooms are 10 pesos to use. However if you pay the small entrance fee (about$6) to the park with the ruins, there is a wonderful easy walking trail to visit some cultural and historical points of interest including a Mayan ruin site. It turns out this is the Eastern most point in Mexico. There is also a separate walking trail at your choice to do which requires some steep stairs and at times there are no railings. We managed just fine though and it was worth the adventure and the beautiful views. Definitely a must stop when touring the island- it took us about 25 minutes by golf cart to arrive. Well worth the time and the entrance fee!

Punta Sur is stunning. I would encourage everyone to take this easy hike to witness the most amazing unspoiled views of this beautiful island. The paths are easily walkable and took about an hour to see it all.

Beautiful place. Short ride. Would recommend taking a golf cart around the island and visiting this interesting Mayan culture park.
