Marietas Islands, Puerto Vallarta

(2,200+ reviews on the web)
Island
Discover the hidden beach at Marietas Islands. Created by scores of government bomb tests, and eventually rescued after Jacques Cousteau brought it to the attention of the world, the now-protected islands teem with diverse marine and bird life, and feature strange rock formations. Snorkel the island's waters for the chance to see manta rays, sea turtles, and dolphins, the navigate your way through a natural tunnel at low tide to visit the secret beach, which is essentially a bomb crater. Be sure to bring some waterproof sunscreen, as the islands offer little in the way of shade. Marietas Islands is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Puerto Vallarta Edition.
