The Marietas are a small group of islands a few miles off the coast of Punta de Mita (Banderas Bay, Nayarit). A protected national park since the late 1960's, thanks to the activity of an international group of scientists led by Jacques Cousteau, the Marietas Islands are home to an abundant marine life population; massive sea turtles, manta rays and dolphins are not difficult to spot any time of the year. On these rocky volcanic islands, wind and water have created a warren of caverns and coves. Tens of thousands of birds reside on these rocks, with species like the Blue-footed Booby nesting in only two places in the world - the Galapagos Islands and the Marietas Islands.In winter, the bay becomes the backdrop for one of the most spectacular events in nature: the arrival of the humpback whales. The whales arrive for their mating season and spend several months close to the islands, where they give birth to their calves.
