A Hidden Beach
In addition to incredible golf here in Punta Mita, our guests have been super excited about all of the adventures in this beautiful playground. We’ll feature a few in this series but if you want to know more about all there is to do when off the course, go to Mexico Imagined or drop us a line here.
First up in this adventure series is a trip to a very special hidden beach. Located just a few kilometers from Punta Mita, there are a string of islands called Las Marietas. Formed by volcanic activity during the Cretaceous period, the islands were designated as a National Park in 2005. An important migratory bird sanctuary, they act as a refuge for at least 92 species of aquatic bird, including the colorful Blue-Footed Booby, which also nest in the famous Galapagos Islands.
On a brief panga (boat) ride to the Marietas Islands, you’ll want to keep an eye out for whales (in season) dolphins, turtles, and manta rays. Once on the islands, you’ll enjoy the wildlife above and under the clear waters. Swim, snorkel, and paddleboard and with our guides, you can capture the fun with GoPro® waterproof cameras. This snorkeling tour is fun for all ages and the smaller groups allows us to cater to your group’s desires.
You will quickly see why Jacques Cousteau fell in love with these islands and started the movement to protect them. As the premier scuba diving and snorkeling location in the bay, you’ll have the opportunity to swim with more than 100 species of fish as well possible encounters with octopus, lobsters, rays, turtles and more – with colorful coral formations as your backdrop.
Seeing and hearing a Humpback whale breach 25 yards away from your boat is like no other experience. It is truly a jaw-dropping experience that should not be missed. During the winter months, you are likely to see whales during your ride to the islands. Our guides will work hard to locate the whales to add this experience to you already amazing day nature.
