The Marietas Islands are one of the best snorkeling areas in Puerto Vallarta. This island was made famous by the world wide known Oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, it is a protected wildlife sanctuary and marine preserve. In this area you can find giant manta rays, sea turtles, dolphins, and humpback whales (only in some months of the year). The islands are also home to rare species of birds, such as the Blue Footed Booby – only found two places on earth – the Galapagos Islands and here at the Marietas.
So if you are up for some snorkeling you just may see manta rays up to 25 feet across, eels, octopus, and even sea horses as well as a wide variety of tropical fish and other sea life.
If you love the ocean, this is a place you can’t miss on your next visit in town.
