It was fun feeding the fish, but the beach was dirty and had a lagoon smell

Excellent, excellent place to vista and spend the day. All you have to do is to decide how much time you want to spend. The either visit by yourself or with a tour group. The park covers a good spread of real estate, so you can walk around if you want to, or stretch out on their white sandy beach.... More

View from the lighthouse is awesome! Definitely take the lagoon boat trip-crocodiles and a cool breeze-not to mention the view to the ocean. Great snorkeling and a peaceful rest in a hammock-spend the day the enjoy dinner on the wild side. Also have had a great beach massage here for a good deal! Take a cooler with drinks and sandwiches... More

Admission is now $12 usd per person, you drive yourself to beach location. Get a umbrella or you will burn, they have food and drinks. Beer is 3 dollars and snacks are around the same. You can get a snorkel guide and swim the protected waters. Seen barracuda, stingrays and many fish. They will advise if the snorkeling is good... More

Wonderful experience. Saw quite a few huge crocodiles, climbed to the top of the lighthouse - a little scary coming down as the steps are narrow, but the view was well worth the climb.

This was the first time we actually visited Punta Sur. I didn't know how large the park was until I read about the different activities and natural preserved areas included. We saw several huge crocodiles, climbed up to the top of the historic lighthouse (amazing panoramic views of the beach and mangrove-lined lagoons), visited the maritime museum and spent a... More

Would recommend this to everyone. Loved going up into the lighthouse. Beautiful view! We rented a jeep and drove around the island and this was one of our stops. Loved it.

A bit on the pricey side compared to other beaches, but very worth it. Lots and lots of hammocks, a lot of beach to walk on and with private places, and, of course, a reef that is not too far to swim to. Lots and lots of fish and places to see. Watch out for the current though, I had... More
