  • Hidden Beach
    In the Marieta Islands, about 20 nautical miles from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, lies a peaceful beach paradise hidden underneath a hole in the ground. It was created when the Mexican government, in the early 1900′s, made a bomb site in preparation for the First World War blowing up a very big hole in the canopy of the grotto. The beach is still unsullied due to the difficulty of getting to it and despite its story, we’re actually thankful – it’s marvelous beach!

  • Rainbow Beach
