The Marietas Islands Virtual Tour allows you to move, travel and feel closer from home to this impressive archipelago located on the north coast of Bahía de Banderas, 5 miles away from Punta de Mita. They are composed of two islands that date back about 60,000 years and are the result of volcanic activity. The natural beauty of the Marietas Islands, nestled in the calm waters of the Mexican Pacific, is complemented by the interesting marine flora and fauna, besides being the temporary home of humpback whales and other cetaceans that like its calm and warm waters. On the other hand, the song of the birds that inhabit it forms a perfect harmony with the sounds of the sea, making this a unique expedition.
Marietas Islands was designated a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2005 and recognized worldwide as a Ramsar Site (which makes it a privileged place to visit and respect). This virtual adventure allows different travelers to maintain closeness with one of the most important beach tourist attractions in the Pacific. In this way, Riviera Nayarit together with the Government of Bahia, Jebus Media, Mictlán Surf School and the photographers Andrea Fanni, Francisco Valdez and Samuel Reséndiz, proud of the natural wealth of their tourist attractions, seek to encourage national travelers to get to know and enjoy, from different perspectives, the most emblematic corners of the Pacific Treasury.
