  • 4 star review  We booked a Marietas Islands Sailing trip through Estigo Tours. They went through a contractor Pegaso and I was on the sailboat VIVA. We met at the Paradise Village Public Pier at 8:45 am. Instructions said that we needed to wear swimsuits, bring towels, and sunscreen (not to be applied while on Marietas Islands) Breakfast (cut up fruit and pastries served shortly after launching), lunch (ham sandwich, tortilla chips, veggies, and dip served after secret beach and snorkeling), and drinks (alcoholic on the way back) were included with admission. Cost was $95 + $25 (Permit) +$14.40 (Fees) =$134.40 USD. Email mentioned a separate "National Park bracelet fee" of 90 Pesos and a "Marina Entrance Fee" of 40 pesos. We were asked for 100 pesos a person at the Marina. We arrived 10 minutes early as requested in the email, but the sailboat contracting company was not there yet. The man at the snack bar said they would be there within 30 minutes or so. There were bathrooms available around the corner. When the boat arrived, everyone on our tour went to the dock and shoes were collected and put into plastic bins. The trip was to the island was about 3 hours. We stopped each time we saw whales or dolphins and the pace was not rushed. Water was pretty calm when we went, but several on board still got seasick due to the length of the trip. There was a bathroom on our sailboat. We pulled out of the marina around 9:15. There was not a ton of room to have stuff with you, but we were fine with a backpack. About 10 minutes after we left the pier, I was approached by one of our guides who very gently asked the ages of my parents. He then mentioned that those OVER THE AGE OF 67 were NOT PERMITTED to actually go to the island due to the strenuous swim that was required. THIS WAS NOT MENTIONED EVEN ONCE DURING BOOKING AND IS THE REASON THAT I HAVE REMOVED A STAR. This information was intentionally withheld until there was no chance in turning back. My dad was over the age, but decided to go anyways as they were not checking identification. He did have difficulty with the swim, but our very helpful guide Fernando helped him by practically pulling him to the island. The island used to be overrun with tourists, but has since become very regulated as to the number allowed in. I can't remember the exact numbers, but it was something like only ~150 visitors were allowed per day and only ~30 were actually allowed at a time on the actual secret beach. When we arrived, there were National Park boats that gave us helmets because you swim through a cave entrance and depending on the tide could potentially hit your head on the rocks. Life vests were provided by our sailboat. I became concerned as our guides started putting on wetsuits as I was in a bikini. The guide explained to me that the water in March would only be cold to them and that we would be fine as "northerners." There was an initial shock entering the water as it was pretty chilly, but not unbearably cold. If I had one, I would have worn a swim shirt to stay a little warmer. The swim: I am 37 and fairly active, but not an excellent swimmer. I did not find the swim particularly difficult, but my parents did. You're in a life vest and there's a guide in the water with you making sure you're okay. With me, I had both a go pro and my cell phone in one of those cheap plastic cases off of Amazon that I took with me to the island. (They sell the cases at the snack shop at the pier too). The actual swim took about 6-8 minutes. We had 20 minutes on the island before our group needed to move on and the next group came on. Afterwards, we swam back to the boat and got our snorkeling gear on (flippers, mask, snorkel). There was a snorkeling area marked with rope. The water in March was pretty murky and visibility low. Guides said it is clear and blue in the summer. We still saw plenty of fish. Stay away from the rocks as they are sharp. One person on my boat got a minor jellyfish string. Ride back had lots of adult beverages and we got back around 5pm.

  • 5 star review  While the beach itself is natural, the sinkhole under which the beach lies is reportedly man-made. The Marietas Islands were originally formed many thousands of years ago by volcanic activity. Being completely uninhabited, the Mexican government started using the islands as target practice prior to the First World War

  • 5 star review  JC One Liner Review: Just do it! Don't worry about the cost, the experience is worth every dollar. Hidden beach tour was about 2.5 hours long. It included visiting Marietas Islands, swimming through the actual hidden beach, boating around the island, seeing wild life and exotic birds, walking the island from the other side, and some snorkeling on the way back. You have to wear a helmet and a life jacket when swimming through the hidden beach. The guide will bring you when the tide is not rough and low. I cannot swim, I am actually afraid of water but I had an awesome guide who showed me safe ways all along. And the life jacket helped. In the end, I am glad I did this tour. Tips: Bring your own life jacket if you can and must. The tour company will provide life jackets but it might be pretty old.
