Punta Sur Ecological Reserve in Cozumel, is at the southern tip of Cozumel Island, and offers an amazing exploration of Cozumel’s most spectacular ecological reservation.
You will visit one of the world's most amazing scenic views from atop the Celarain lighthouse, with a nautical museum at its base. This national park offers the Laguna de Colombia, part of a three-lagoon system that is the habitat of crocodiles. Crocs can be seen from either the shore, from a trail through mangroves or from the dock over the lagoon. You may climb some stairs to a nice lookout over the lagoon, and there is also a trail through mangroves.
“There is a unique Mayan Ruin and is said the Mayans has mysterious use of the ruin”
There is a boat ride that takes people to discover the lagoon a couple times a day. You may see many resident and migratory waterfowl and many other rare & unique creatures during your exciting exploration of Punta Sur Eco Park Cozumel. Its a real treat to see the different animals at the ecological reserve at Punta Sur. You can see anything from island Raccoons (much smaller and friendlier than normal Raccoons and its also a rare type of Raccoon only found in Cozumel) and even flamingos.
Cozumel is full of history and culture, and the things you will learn and discover will truly amaze you. I know I was when I first ventured Cozumel and learned about this fascinating island. At the tip of Punta Sur Park, you'll find one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Its perfect for younger kids, or for anyone who just wants to relax in the water without getting crushed by waves. The tip of the island wraps around, creating a barrier, which protects the beach from waves. The water is very shallow for a half a mile out, which makes it great for little ones who want to splash around. If you dont want to swim, there are shaded hammocks that you can relax on. This location is also one of the best places to snorkel from shore, but it is a far swim to get to the reefs. We recommend only experienced snorkelers and swimmers take advantage of this shore snorkeling location. One of the great things about Cozumel, is that many of the great reefs are easily accessible from shore, so if your not taking a snorkel tour, you can still take advantage of Cozumel's amazing reefs. Our Private tours all include a private snorkel tour at the best reef locations accessible from shore, at a private beach club.
If you are interested in discovering Punta Sur Park and the other side of Cozumel, our Private Cozumel Jeep Tour or Private Dune Buggy Tour would be your best options. You may create your own adventure in Cozumel.
