In the early 1990s, the Mexican Government began testing their own bombs on a group of islands, called Marieta Islands. The said islands are located only a few miles off Mexico’s coast. But instead of leaving a mark of devastation, those bombings had created something spectacular. A place far from the scenery of war and chaos.

The Marieta Islands in Puerto Vallarta are a group of small uninhabited islands only a few miles off the coast of Nayarit, Mexico. The Mexican’s bomb testing left something amazing behind.

It is very unusual that a place like the Playa De Amor is a result of massive destruction. It is a living proof that despite the negative things we do, mother nature still manages to give us something beautiful, something we can call paradise. Share this hidden gem with others.
