acapulcoThere are two common destinations for a beach vacation, one is the party place Acapulco full of bars and wild night life and the second is Cancun with its super clear water and Caribbean style.

Sure both are good, but what if you like something less common? Something hidden and unknown. Here let us show you one exclusive option. A beach, that is closed to the public and only a few people can visit it per day. It is that special that you need a boat to reach it. It is located on the Marietas Islands near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

First, you can arrive in Puerto Vallarta with a plane or a cruise ship. From there you can get a tour to the Beach of Love (Playa del Amor), which is located on the Marietas island. There you can enjoy the best out of a Mexican beach: incredibly clear sand, the perfect temperature for sunbathing all the year, snorkeling in the transparent water and watching all the diversity of sea animals (fish, turtles, crabs and corals), they have it all. If you are lucky you can see even whales on the way to there. They like to come to the islands during the winter.

In difference from most of the beaches in this country, this one is free of annoying sellers. You can imagine, they can’t reach it. This is the reason we recommend you to take a tour that includes food and drinks or to bring some with you. We especially recommend you to try some seafood, they have amazing fish that has been just caught. 

This beach has very limited amount of visitors per day. That is thanks to the Mexican government who is trying to protect it from destruction. It is a unique feeling to be in a country which is super crowded all the time and to find this peace of paradise, so free of all the noise of the people.

After such an experience you will have a tale to tell to your friends and family.

Get to know Mexico and you will fall in love with it. Its spectacular landscapes can leave you breathless and eager to discover more.
