Earlier this season, a group of us set out on a day trip to the secret beach at the Marieta Islands. We hired Salvador in Rincón de Guayabitos to take us. While en route to the islands, we did some whale watching until the captain spotted some splashing going on. We headed that way to explore and got a chance to see these manta rays jumping. I had only once seen this before in Punta Raza in 2013 when I led a hiking group down at the beach. Those were little ones – nothing like these mantas. Prior to that I didn’t realized they liked to jump and play.
