Island
Marietas Islands serves as a popular tourist destination due to its untouched natural ecosystem and abundance of marine life. Boat tours take visitors to this uninhabited area, and it's popular for snorkeling and scuba diving. Watch for sea turtles, manta rays, octopus, and thousands of different species of fish. Explore the rocky caverns in a kayak or search for Hidden Beach, where you can lay in the sand and soak up the sun. These islands provide a prime place for whale- and dolphin-watching as well.

  • Incredible journey in Riviera Nayarit, visit many beaches with villages beautiful sayulita and san pancho, but certainly the must-see visit is Playa Escondida on the marietas Islands. It is quite expensive, but I got a tour shared by 1500 Mexican pesos, something like 85 dollars. You must be pending and ask if you TOur includes admission to playa escondida, otherwise you pay the tour and they do not allow you to enter (by water swimming) to this small paradise.

  • I love, everything is very nice and I liked more, the Islands are highly protected by the Government, and clear that is fine, because it is a place that must be kept free of contamination.

  • The place is good, but it did not seem it worth what it costs. The best movements, you see dolphins, manta rays and a season also see whales. The Islands are not spectacular and you can only see them from a distance, the "hidden" beach has limited access to a number of people (think to 126), they do not let you stay for more than 30 minutes and has an extra cost quite high. It seems to me that if you go with limited time, you can do other activities.
