Sunset at the Mirador in El Cuyo

El Cuyo is a small fishing village located on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. It is known for its beautiful beaches, crystal-clear waters, and laid-back atmosphere. One of the best places to watch the sunset in El Cuyo is from the Mirador (the Lookout).

The Mirador is a small pier with a palapa on the end. It is located just a short walk from the town center and offers stunning views of the lagoons of Rio Lagartos located behind El Cuyo. The palapa provides a shady spot to relax and enjoy the view, take a seat and dangle your legs off the pier, as you relax and watch the sunset.

The best time to visit the Mirador is during the winter months, from September to March. During this time, the sunsets are particularly spectacular as they set directly on the waters of Rio Lagartos. The sky turns a brilliant shade of orange and red, and the reflection of the sun on the water is simply breathtaking.
