Located on the Pacific coast of Mexico, the Marietas Islands are a small group of beautiful volcanic islands known for their population of sea life. No people live on the islands, and they are protected as a national park by the Mexican government such that no fishing or hunting is allowed there. Because the islands are protected, tourists don't actually set foot on the islands except for sunbathing, but you can enjoy them thoroughly by participating in activities like sightseeing, boating, snorkeling, and scuba diving.
Participating in a guided tour is a great way to experience the islands as everything is planned and taken care of for you, and you benefit from the knowledge of a guide who knows the area very well. There are specialty tours that focus on specific areas of interest, including nature encounters, ocean expeditions, and underwater expeditions. You also gain access to the incredible Hidden Beach (Playa Del Amor) which can only be accessed by swimming or kayaking.
The tours are affordable and include food, transportation, and recreational equipment like kayaks and snorkeling fins. Learn more by checking out Marietas-Islands.net/.
