Venture to Punta Cometa, a high, rocky cape with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean. Standing at the southernmost point of Oaxaca, this spot is renowned for its sunset view, so expect to see other tourists during that time of day. Trails among grassy shrubs and cacti line the cliffs' edge; these eventually lead you to adjacent beaches. While here, be on the lookout for migrating whales and flocks of pelicans.

This place is a must when you visit Mazunte. I like taking the stairs that start at the main beach and climb up from there. It is a half an hour walk all the way to the top where you can enjoy one of the best sunsets you’ll ever experience. Try to get there about une hour before sunset so you can get a good spot. Take a tripod if you want to film a time lapse of the event and stay after the sun sets because the sky will still put on a show. Take a flashlight or make sure your phone has enough battery to walk back in the dark.
Beautiful views and sounds. It is definitely worth the hike, which was not too long. Bring a decent pair of shoes since it is very rocky and dangerous to walk too close to the edges. I highly recommend to make the stop. Bring a flashlight since it gets pitch black.
