“Punta Sur” has two lighthouses: The first one belongs to the prehispanic era and is called “Templo Del Caracol” which means sea shell temple, and the other one is “El Faro Celarain” both of them faithful observers of the past and present.

The old house of the lighthouse keeper is currently the “Museo de la Navegación” (Navigation Museum) and testifies to the history of the Mayan, pirates and corsairs who sailed the waters of the Mexican Caribbean.

Because of its extensive beaches, Punta Sur is the nesting place for the sea turtle who counts with a conservation and protection program in which you can participate during the arriving season.
