It is believed that a light was established at this point near the centre of the town of San Miguel de Cozumel on the Isla de Cozumel, Mexico in the early 1900's. The date of the current Punta Langosta Lighthouse is not known. It was active until the construction of the Punta Ealetita Lighthouse about 1 mile south in around the year 2000. It currently sits in a shopping/restaurant complex at the base of the Punta Langosta Pier and cruise ship dock. The light is now privately owned but has been reactivated to assist boats in the harbour. Photo was taken in March 2014.
