This time the international guide www.societeperrier.com recommends Platanitos and the Marietas Islands among its “five beaches to discover on the Pacific coast” of Mexico.
A new recommendation for the beaches of the Riviera Nayarit is circulating throughout the Internet! This time the kudos come from the website www.societeperrier.com, which focuses on international music, art, travel, nightlife, cocktail culture, mixology, fashion and global interests.
The article, written by Edna Pedraza—designer, fashion coordinator, contributor to MEOW and editor of Société Perrier Mexico—, extended an invitation to “five beaches to discover on the Pacific Coast.” The list includes Platanitos and the Marietas Islands, both in the Riviera Nayarit.
“On this occasion we’d like to mention five tropical paradises that aren’t as well known. They’re bathed by the warm waters of the largest ocean in the world, but we have to warn you that to get to some of these beaches you’ll have to work it like Indiana Jones,” said the article.
“The Marietas Islands are made up of two islands and two islets surrounded by natural rock formations that seem to encapsulate the turquoise-tinted water. It’s as if they wanted to keep this place a secret only for those brave enough to uncover its treasures,” it continues.
“The treasures consist of coral, blue-footed boobies, bottle nosed dolphins, a fantastic variety of marine birds and, of course, fish, plus giant manta rays, Olive Ridley turtles and even humpback whales.”
It also mentions a protected area that encourages adventure and exploration via scuba or snorkel, where visitors can even practice their mountain climbing skills!
Regarding Platanitos, it waxes eloquent about its calm waters that allow swimmers to remain in the water without having to worry about jumping any big waves.
Author Edna Pedraza continues: “Located some 25 km from Las Varas and about 30 km from San Blas, the it greets you with its very fine sand beach framed by dense vegetation. Here you’ll find turtles and trails to take you to the Cora and Tecuitata waterfalls. It’s the perfect combination for nature lovers in search of total relaxation.”
The beaches of Michigan in Guerrero, Playa Mermejita in Oaxaca and La Llorona in Michoacán round out the list.
