With crystal clear waters and white sands, no one could imagine that the islands were used by the government for military practices. And now the Marietas Islands are protected by the Mexican Government. The Marietas are a group of uninhabited islands a few miles east of Puerto Vallarta Jalisco, Mexico.
Access to Playa Escondida is now limited to only 116 people per day. This is the reason why only a very small group of tour operators are allowed to take the general public to visit the islands in a designated area so that tourists can observe the spectacular beauty that can be found here.
It is important to emphasize that life on the Marietas Islands is respected, so no fishing or hunting is allowed. It is perhaps for this reason that many consider the Marietta Islands to be one of the few ecological refuges on the planet, and it is not surprising that it has become a very interesting tourist destination.
The water here is so clear that you can see 10 meters deep, but best of all are its reefs, swimming in these waters makes you feel at peace, as if you were swimming in a giant aquarium.
