ISLAS MARIETAS OVEREXLPOITED. Tourism is one of the worst predadors. Profepa ( Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection) detects a black market for permits. State Tourism - with it´s short term vision- disregards the islands carrying capacity.

Comment from PS:
Vallarta Adventures is one of the biggest violators of the 'protection and the respect of the environment', whether it is visits to the Marietas or the introduction of people to the surfing spots around the bay. They arrive with an abundance of customers and take over with a total lack of respect for other users. The noise and congestion of their clients convert what could be an exhilarating experience of nature to another Disney like episode. We have seen Punta de Mita converted from a rustic and perhaps rather crude,but natural environment to another theme park.
The original idea of the development of this area was that it would be a showcase of what eco-tourism could really be, sadly it has become exactly the opposite.
