Hi guys, Just returned from the Market as Island. CONS: NOT calm waters. You got to be fit to swim agains the waves and snorkel at the same time. And I'm a cyclist. The guide kept forgetting (I hope) that I was the only non-Spanish...More

These are absolutely stunning. We snorkeled here and saw some awesome underwater life! We learned a lot about the history from our Vallarta Adventures tour guides. It was sad to see the garbage from the ocean in some areas. Take care of our environment humans!...More

Just a multitude of species in a small place ... incredible. The surrounding water is also teeming with life. Unfortunately, it is jellyfish season so we were not able to stay in the water as much as we wanted.

The trip to Marietas islands was amazing even though you can not go to the island seeing all the birds and fish that inhabit on and around the island make the trip worthwhile.

The swim to Hidden Beach is not a snorkel: no masks or fins are allowed on the beach. There can be a pretty strong current but it's not too bad. You wear a life jacket but if you are not a strong swimmer, I suggest...More

We just approached someone in the marina. Then we bartered on a price. I don’t recall the exact amount we paid. I want to say around $100 ea?

There wasn't one that I saw and we asked specifically, because i agree that less than 5 hours would be nice. The reason we were told was because it took about 1.5 hours each way just to reach the islands... Hope this helps.
