This is a magical and healing spot. It used to be a ceremonial center in which healing practices were made during Prehispanic times. Its geographical position allows you to observe the sea in an 180 degrees view. Here you can spot amazing sunrises and moving sunsets. The biodiversity of this mountain and its sea cliffs are the perfect combination for finding peace of mind.

The native settlers tell that the treasure of the Aztecs was hidden some place in Punta Cometa. In Prehispanic times this place used to be an Aztec military enclave, they built a big wall of stones. Today, this place is called “corral de piedra”. You can find here different kinds of medicinal herbs like copal. This resin was used both in Prehispanic ceremonies and in Catholic ritual.
