When you are traveling to Mexico City, you will find no shortage of beaches that are present around the city. The crowded and colorful city streets accompanied by the sprawling sandy beaches are a dream for anyone wanting a little sun and sand. While you are free to roam around in any part of the city you like, we do recommend going a little out of the way for a completely new experience visiting the Hidden Beach.
Possibly one of the most intriguing spots in Mexico City, the ‘Hidden Beach’ is located off the coast of Puerto Vallarta on the Islas Marietas which is on the city’s western side. The beach is almost completely engulfed by a cave, with a massive hole in the roof supposedly done by using the uninhabited island as a target for bombing practice during World War 1.
Because of this extremely, unique history and also because of a campaign led by Jacques Cousteau in 1960, the islands were named a national park in 2005 and have been protected ever since.
You can access the beach through an hour-long boat ride, and then either by swimming or paddling through the waters of the Pacific Ocean. The unique way of entering is worth the wait. You are greeted by the picturesque view and the beautiful flora and fauna; an ideal setting for nature lovers. This place is perfect for an afternoon spent lazing around on the beach or snorkeling for the perfect holiday pictures.
