The Mexican Federal Government through the CONANP (Comisión Nacional de Aréas Naturales Protegidas) has ordered Playa Escondida, also known as the “Hidden Beach,” to be temporarily off-limits to visitors for environmental restoration and maintenance. This temporary restriction will last at least two months and will provide vital conservation improvements to the conditions of the Islas Marietas, one of Rivera Nayarit’s natural wonders, destination officials said.  

Islas Marietas will continue to be accessible by officially sanctioned tour operators and visitors can still enjoy snorkeling, kayaking, bird watching and other activities in other locations in the Marietas Islands. 

Islas Marietas is a cluster of islands that is rich with wildlife. A federally protected nature reserve and a UNESCO biosphere reserve, the islands were formed by volcanic activity and are home to thousands of birds. The islands are also surrounded by first-class diving opportunities. Humpback whales, octopus, sea turtles and colorful tropical fish await the divers and tourists who visit these islands.
