About
This iconic work of art by Daniel Popper - Ven a la Luz (Come to the Light) is a 10-meter tall sculpture made with steel, wood, rope and greenery. The sculpture represents the harmony between people and nature and is one of the most instagrammable spots in Mexico. It is permanently installed in a garden outside the hotel Ahau Tulum and will welcome more art installations with time. The $3 USD entrance fee goes towards maintenance of the sculpture and “Care with Me”: the fundraising initiative by Art With Me supporting local communities.

    A lot of money for one sculpture.
    The sculpture itself was beautiful, however, paying $10 to park and $3 per person to see it is a tad overkill. We stopped by on the way to the airport so we were ONLY there for a picture, but still had to pay for a full day of parking. Got there right at opening, waited in line for 20 minutes and spent a total of $16 for a picture. I suggest stopping by on a day that you will be in the area for a while to utilize the parking fee. They do have someone there to take pictures for you, and he took ALOT, so that was a plus.

    30 minutes for 1 photo
    It was a nice photo, I will admit that. However, my group arrived about half an hour after it opened and got stuck behind a tour group that treated it like a private photo shoot and not obeying the 1 minute per person sign at all. there was ten people in front of us, it should not have taken 30 minutes. if there was someone at the front enforcing the rule it probably wouldn't have been so brutal. That being said, the statues were amazing and made great photos but for anyone not arriving close to the opening of the statue good luck, there's limited shade in line and the line does get long fast.

    I wish it had more explosions
    Well, the entrance fee isn’t expensive. Long wait to get to the main statue. Really tiny by size and literally only 3 sculptures. The main one is impressive though. However, some selfie, instagram people have no respect to other visitors. There’s a plaque saying: 1 min per person. But who cares?! They take their sweet time to pose and take zillion pics. While the line is melting under the sun. It’s nothing park is disappointing but visitors

    Simple Photo op
    Photo op and that’s it. Luckily we I’ll waited about 10 min for our turn. Very small walk in and out. Every person is told a minute each for pics, no one takes a minute. Your there very long watching others take photos for social media

    Not Worth The Trip
    I was really excited to visit the sculpture garden, but our experience was marred by the unfriendly attitude of the lady handling donations. She refused to give change for our large bills, forcing us to visit three different stores just to break a bill. Upon entering, we found that there was only one main sculpture, and we were given just one minute to take a photo for 180 pesos. This was quite disappointing after biking far out of our way to see it. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way for this attraction, as it's unfortunately overhyped on social media as being Instagram-worthy.

    SCAM! Bring exact change
    We visited the sculpture. The cost is 80 Pesos each. BE AWARE bring exact change as the lady tried scamming us saying she had no change. We waited until another customer gave the change we needed then past through the line. As we were waiting I looked over as she then magically finds a heap of smaller notes in a bag under the desk.

The sculpture was amazing to see - but it took all of 30 minutes (including standing in line)....so have something else in mind to do afterward. And they charge $4 to take a photo with it.

It’s pretty cheap (£4) to go in but once yku’re in you queue for half an hour, take a picture & then leave. Probably not worth travelling to but if you’re in the area then it’s a nice thing to see & have a picture with

The place itself is small, everything is crammed in there. The waiting line is pretty long. Beside the main attraction there are several other sculptures. A bit too expensive.

The sculpture park is quite small (has about 4 or 5 exhibits including the Escultura Ven a la Luz sculpture). I spent around 20 minutes there looking at the pieces and taking photos. If you have some time to spare, this is a good place to visit.

If you know you want to have alot of time taking pictures with the Escultura Ven a la Luz sculpture, I suggest getting there at the time of opening which is 9am to avoid a queue. I got there approx. 9:04am and took loads of pictures. By 9:26am, a group came, a queue started forming, and people only had a few seconds to snap their photos.

Another thing to note is that entry price was 80 MXN or US$4.
