Hidden Beach Marieta Islands
This exquisite little gem of a beach is stashed like a hidden treasure amidst the Marietas Islands, a small, rugged, uninhabited archipelago a short distance offshore from us.
Although there are no hotels on these islands, our own Playa Escondida is not only convenient in being close by, but we are in many ways an even more magical and secret hidden treasure, the perfect place to stay if you wish to visit the Marietas.
The Marieta islands are a sanctuary for thousands of birds, including a thriving colony of blue-footed boobies; they are also surrounded by a marine sanctuary, so the waters are teeming with fish, rays and all manner of colorful sea life. Accessible only by swimming through an underwater tunnel, "playa escondida" is one of the magical destinations in Bahia Banderas.
Here at Hotel Playa Escondida, we share more than a name with the hidden beach of the Marietas.
Playa Escondida is a private, jungle beach on the rugged Nayarit coastline where you are close to nature in eco chic comfort.
Incredible rooms, seclusion and privacy, unbelievable food and an unpretentious staff make it the perfect complement to your trip to discover the Marieta nature preserve.
Finding your way through the islands en route to the hidden beach, you'll be cruising through some of Mexico's most enchanting waters. In season, the whales are always in the neighborhood, breaching, spyglassing, making their magnificent moves.
This is an unforgettable place which no one should miss when visiting the Riviera Nayarit, Puerto Vallarta, or Sayulita. We offer our guests the best guides in the area for a personalized tour away from the crowds of all-inclusive tourism.
Between one Playa Escondida and the other lie a few miles of balmy blue-green Pacific Ocean. Stay with us and we'll help you find that hidden beach and many more treasures
