Isla Marietas National Park, Punta de Mita

Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • If you are visiting the area is not to be missed visit to these islands, I read many bad things about service providers but I hired a Coop in punta Mita and I was super good,

  • The Marietas Islands are unique in the world, excess of visitors made that they were temporarily closed, you have to go swimming and spend a short time inside since there are quite a few people. Good trip!!!
