  • Most people go to Punta Sur by land and look at the water. We went by boat and did a drift dive watching Turtles mate. You should be able to see them from the cliffs when they come up to breathe...  more »
  • Nice place to check out and wander around the paths where the Caribbean meats the Atlantic. 30 pesos to get in and fun to wander for an hour or so  more »
