The Original South Park

A hidden jewel of white sand beaches, nature-packed lagoons and fantastic lighthouse views is tucked away on Cozumel's southern tip.

Punta Sur Park covers some 1,100 hectares and has recently re-opened to the public.

Many visitors to the island overlook this fantastic attraction, making it even less spoilt for those that do find their way.

The day remembers the Grito de Dolores or Independencia, a call for Mexicans to rebel against the Spanish, made by Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in 1810.
