Punta Sur Sculpture Garden, Isla Mujeres
If you go to Isla Mujeres, a must see is a visit to Punta Sur, the southern most tip of the island, and the eastern most point of Mexico. This area is the highest in the Yucatan (I read that online and find that so hard to believe, but perhaps it is true). Here in this area next to Garrafon Reef Park, you will find a small Mayan temple to Ixchel, the Goddess of the Moon and the Punta Sur Sculpture Garden. You also have amazing views of the ocean from beautiful cliffs, and more iguanas than I have ever seen in one place. There is a little bar/restaurant where you can get a cold beer and some good, inexpensive food after your tour. They had the best chips and pico de gallo we found anywhere on the island and some of the best I've had anywhere. The sculpture garden was created in 2001 by the Sebastian Foundation and features works from 23 artists from Mexico and other countries. Here are some photos from the sculpture garden.
