Just a multitude of species in a small place ... incredible. The surrounding water is also teeming with life. Unfortunately, it is jellyfish season so we were not able to stay in the water as much as we wanted.

The trip to Marietas islands was amazing even though you can not go to the island seeing all the birds and fish that inhabit on and around the island make the trip worthwhile.

The swim to Hidden Beach is not a snorkel: no masks or fins are allowed on the beach. There can be a pretty strong current but it's not too bad. You wear a life jacket but if you are not a strong swimmer, I suggest swimming on your back for some for some of the ways so that you don't get water in your mouth.

Once you get there, the beach is beautiful and very unique. You're allowed 30 mins total for the swim there and back and time spent on the beach. There are little caves there, but only go in with a guide because there can be a little current there too. The blue-footed boobies are on the rocks above as we swam in. It was a very exciting swim!

We also dove the Mountain dive site there. It was a beautiful dive at about 60ft with rocky reef and tons of Angelfish. The water was 81 degrees and visibility was about 50ft, really good. No wet suit needed unless you have bad buoyancy and hit the rocks.

Beautiful islands for snorkeling and exploring by boat, but you have to be aware that the government actively patrols here and you cannot explore the land other than a small beach on one side of one of the islands. We saw plenty of fish and even got to see a momma and baby grey whales on the way back to the mainland. Reservations are recommended when it's the busy season. If other times of the year you can probably just show up at the office in Punta de Mita and they should be able to get you in a tour boat. The hidden beach was off limits when we got there so keep in mind you may not get those 'gram-worthy' pictures you had in mind.

Hired a private panga for a boat trip and snorkelling. Spent about 2 hours aboard including a stop off at a private beach. It was early in the day and deserted. Didn't visit the secret beach as figured it wouldn't be too secret with lots of tourists and a limit to 10 minutes on shore. Saw the birds on the rocks including blue footed ones. A brilliant morning.
