Islas Marietas

The Islas Marietas National Park is made up of two small uninhabited islands located a few kilometers from the coast of Punta Mita. This archipelago has an impressive beauty, cataloged as a Biosphere Reserve, and constituting one of the marine sanctuaries with the greatest biodiversity in Mexico.

Leaving from the same marina of the fishing village of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, we can make our way towards the Islas Marietas National Park. During the journey, in the winter months, you will be able to enjoy the movement and jumps of the humpback whales. It is an ideal place for practicing kayaking, and especially snorkeling thanks to the varied fauna that lives in its waters: coral reefs, dolphins, rays, and sea turtles, etc. Additionally, it is the home to various species of birds such as the albatross and boobies. Perhaps the most spectacular place on these islands is Playa Escondida, known by some as Playa del Amor. It is a semi-covered area due to the volcanic activity of the past, making it one of the most original beaches in the world, is located inside a pit connected with the ocean by an underwater tunnel, the only way to access it.
