Punta Sur Eco Beach Park

Punta Sur Eco Beach Park

?It is the ideal place for nature lovers. Wide beaches of fine white sand and pristine waters of intense blue that are home to numerous reef formations and a garden of sea fans that seems to extend forever.

?Punta Sur is a state reserve of over 2,500 acres. It is a lagoon system that creates a mosaic of flora and fauna diversity and wildlife with Cozumel's most beautiful beaches. The ecosystem is strongly protected in awareness of its importance

Entering "Punta Sur" means transporting to a natural paradise in which you will find a great variety of birds and animals that can only be appreciated right here. A crocodile´s observation tower allows you to see these incredible reptiles in their natural habitat as well as wading birds and fish. This park is truly a spectacular place.

Don't miss the wonderful view of the Caribbean Sea after climbing the 133 steps of the Celarain Lighthouse, still in operation today. Tour the Navigation Museum located in the lower part of the lighthouse, where the lighthouse keeper lived and where the history of the Mayas, pirates and corsairs that crossed the waters of the Mexican Caribbean was witnessed.

A pre-hispanic lighthouse? The so-called "Temple of the conch", a Mayan ruin is one and "El Faro Celarain", both faithful observers of the past and the present.

Thanks to the extensive beaches found in Punta Sur, it is an ideal nesting place for the sea turtle. A conservation and protection program assure that these beautiful creatures return year after year. During the nesting season you can participate first hand in this wonderful program*.
