Discover the natural beauty and outdoor adventure awaiting in Punta Sur Eco Park, as you spend three hours encountering crocodiles, exploring historic Celarain Lighthouse, lounging beachside and snorkeling Arrecifes del Cozumel National Park. Welcome to the natural paradise of Punta Sur Eco Park, a state reserve teeming with diverse wildlife and plant life among its expansive lagoon system. Stand atop an observation tower overlooking crocodiles lurking around the marsh and then take off-road paths through the jungle to see ruins dating back to the ancient Mayan days. Learn about the native people, pirates and privateers that sailed around the Mexican Caribbean while perusing the small Navigation Museum housed in the old lighthouse keeper's home. You can even climb to the top of Celarain Lighthouse and relish sweeping views of the island landscape. Along the shore you'll have free time to unwind on a bright-white beach edged by shallow, crystalline waters. Or opt for more adventure on a guided snorkel trip offshore at the Arrecifes de Cozumel, a protected coral reef system filled with tropical marine life. All snorkel gear is included — and all the outdoor fun you can imagine is wrapped up into this one day in Cozumel.
