Faro de Punta Celerain (Punta Sur) Ecological Park Tours

Located on Cozumel’s southernmost tip, Faro de Punta Celerain (Punta Sur) Ecological Park spans 2,500 acres (1,011 hectares) of coastal wilderness, coral reefs, and Caribbean ocean. Here you can find ancient Maya ruins, a picturesque lighthouse, and sandy beaches—plus exotic birds, crocodiles, and sea turtles.
 
The Basics
Explore the park’s coral reefs on a diving or snorkeling tour to experience one of Cozumel’s richest underwater landscapes. On land, you can explore beautiful beaches, enjoy fresh seafood, and rest in shady hammocks. Climb the Celerain Point Lighthouse (Faro de Punta Celerain) for panoramic views of the area, visit the Tumba de Caracol (an ancient Maya shrine to Ixchel, the fertility goddess), or stroll through the wetlands to see crocodiles and rare birds.
 
Skip-the-line admission tickets to Punta Sur Ecological Beach Park allow you to save time and bypass long queues. Many Cozumel island tours include a visit to the park, whether you want to explore via Jeep, dune buggy, motorcycle, or electric bike. Some tour options include pickup and drop-off from hotels in Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Cancun, or other Riviera Maya destinations.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Punta Sur Eco Beach Park is a must-see destination for wildlife lovers.
  • Remember to bring sun protection, a swimsuit, and plenty of water.
  • Be careful not to touch or disturb the wildlife, whether you’re on land or swimming on the reef.
 
How to Get There
The eco park is located roughly 18 miles (29 kilometers) south of San Miguel, at the island’s southernmost tip. There is no public transportation on the island, but you can rent a car, hire a cab, or visit as part of a tour.
 
When to Get There
The park is busiest from December through April, when the weather tends to be sunny and warm. There are fewer crowds during hurricane season (May through October), but be sure to check the weather for storms if you plan to participate in outdoor activities.
 
Exploring Cozumel’s Coral Reefs
Located off the coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Cozumel island is home to a world-famous coral reef system. The reef near Punta Sur Ecological Park is best for experienced divers and is famous for its underwater cavern system. Paradise Reef and Palancar Reef are ideal spots for novice divers and snorkelers due to their shallow depth; both offer a chance to glimpse sea turtles, colorful fish, towering coral spires, and gently waving sea fans.
