|About these ratings|
If you're a wildlife lover, a trip to Faro Celerain Eco Park is a must. Also known as Parque Punta Sur, this sprawls across the southern tip of Cozumel. Its 2,500 acres shelter a variety of indigenous species, including exotic birds and crocodiles, not to mention sea turtles. But don't let the animals distract you from everything else the park has to offer. Take some time to explore the El Caracol Mayan ruins and the Faro Celerain Lighthouse, where you'll find a small maritime museum. Also, make sure to pack a swimsuit and enjoy the calmer waters of the Laguna Colombia. According to one TripAdvisor user, "The beach is beautiful, one of the few places on Cozumel where the surf is actually not so strong as to prevent swimming."
To make the most of your visit, stop by the visitor's center where you'll encounter an onslaught of information. Many recent visitors recommend taking a catamaran or kayak tour of the Laguna Colombia.
The Faro Celerain Eco Park is open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $12 USD for adults and $6 USD for children ages three to 11; guided boat tours will cost extra. For more information, check out the Cozumel Parks website.
