Drove to Mazunte from La Crucecita to see the sunset at Punta Cometa. We were told it's the only place in all of Mexico where you can see the sun rise and set over the ocean.

Wel. How can you describe a place where to see the sunset running down directly in front of you, down on the ocean. Beautiful beaches beside. Remember to bring soe beers, it will be hard to come back (and harder to keep on without booze!)

I'll definitely go back to punta cometa. This place is full of the best vibes I've ever felt. Watching the sunset from the top of this hill is one of those things that are hard to forget.

Best snorkeling and whale watching on the Oaxaca coast. Clear water, numerous tropical fish, moray eels, whales -- a quiet place few people even know about. You'll need a vehicle and don't expect great services here. You can boat with a local fisherman (cheap to see whales, manta rays, etc.) Amazing.

A large group of people go out to this punta every evening to watch the sun set at the pacific ocean. The colours were amazing. Highly recommend - good break from lazing around at the beach all day.

Highly recommend. Nice trip. We rode a scooter after a day trip to Laguna Ventanilla (also recommend). Be careful of the waves though, I dont recommend swimming.

Amazing views, weather, and atmosphere, we had lunch in a place called PUNTA SUR, the best food we tried along this part of the coast of oaxaca, definitely a place to go back to.
