Puerto Vallarta: Mexico’s Hidden Coastal Pearl
Another place, which is not in town but is nearby, deserves a special mention here. Playa Del Amor or Lovers Beach is an uninhabited island, which is part of Islas Marietas National Park or Marieta Islands.
The island is the end result of extensive bombing by the Mexican government during the First World War and can be accessed only during low tide by swimming through a narrow cavern filled with water (your head will be above the water) and then emerging on a dry beach on the other side. You can charter a boat or join a tour to the islands.
This is one of the most bio-diverse spots of Mexico and don’t be surprised if you spot sea turtles, dolphins, humpback whales and hundreds of birds.
The destinations above are a snapshot of what awaits you at Puerto Vallarta. Head over to this seaside beauty for this winter and enjoy an unforgettable break.
