Visit: Punta Sur Eco Beach Park, Punta Sur, Cozumel 77600 Mexico
The Ecological Park Punta Sur is a state reserve whose extension exceeds one thousand hectares in which lagoon systems that constitute a mosaic of great flora and fauna diversity and wealth pre-dominate.
This is the ideal place for nature lovers. Stand out the wide beaches with fine white sand and turquoise waters which house numerous reef formations laying out sea fan gardens extended for a long length.
Entering Punta Sur means transporting to a natural paradise in which you will find a great variety of birds and animals that you can only be able to appreciate there. It counts with a tower for crocodile´s observation in their natural habitat, making this park a spectacular place.
Punta Sur has two lighthouses: the first one belongs to the prehispanic era and is called Templo Del Caracol which means seashell temple, and the other one is El Faro Celarain both of them faithful observers of the past and present. The old house of the lighthouse keeper is currently the Museo de la Navegación (Navigation Museum) and testifies to the history of the Mayan, pirates and corsairs who sailed the waters of the Mexican Caribbean.
Because of its extensive beaches, Punta Sur is the nesting place for the sea turtle who counts with a conservation and protection program in which you can participate during the arriving season.
