Playa del Amor, located in the Marietas Islands National Park, has been included in the ranking of the “12 Best Beaches in Mexico” according to Condé Nast Traveler magazine. These 12 beaches stand out thanks to their resorts, unique activities and overall beauty.
Also known as Playa Escondida, or Hidden Beach, this gorgeous hideaway is one of the Riviera Nayarit’s tourist icons, brimming with wildlife and adventure. Among its unique inhabitants is the blue-footed Booby, as well as many other exotic species both on land and below the waves.
In the article published on the website www.cntraveler.com, Playa del Amor is described by journalist Caitlin Morton as something straight out of a fantasy movie, albeit very real and hard to reach.
“The beach is engulfed by a cave with a gaping hole in the roof, (…) the hole now serves as a unique skylight that opens the beach up for sunbathing and photo ops, but the extremely strong currents here make swimming a risky endeavor.”
The list also includes beaches in Jalisco, Quintana Roo, Baja California Sur, Oaxaca, and Guerrero, all with white sand, warm water and idyllic views.
