A wildlife sanctuary and aquatic reserve, the islands are home to a huge and diverse number of aquatic species, including: giant turtles, manta rays, tropical fishes and the playful bottlenose dolphin. Snorkelers are constantly amazed by the beauty of the reefs and their inhabitants.
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.
During the winter months, a large number of humpback whales migrate to the Mexican Pacific coast to mate and breed. Between December and April, they make their spectacular appearances in Banderas Bay.
