Isla Marietas National Park, Punta de Mita

(4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Encounter a wealth of sea creatures at Isla Marietas National Park, a marine park centered around a group of small uninhabited islands. An hour-long boat ride from the coast of Puerto Vallarta gets you to the park, where government protection from fishing and hunting has created a rich and diverse ecosystem. Although you cannot access the islands--save for one secluded beach--the focus here is really on the water. Take a whale-watching tour to spot breaching humpbacks and dolphins, along with blue-footed boobies on the islands' rugged rocks. Alternatively, head beneath the surface on a snorkeling or scuba diving trip to meet manta rays, octopuses, and sea turtles.

  • I loved it, very friendly locals, sunque there is nothing as you do the deal directly with the boat to go to the Islands the intermediaries are not very reliable, we were taken to the Islands, tour, snorkeling, and visit hidden Beach, are satisfied with the service. NS
