    What to Expect
    Los Arcos.

    The name translates into “The Arches”, one of the iconic sites of Puerto Vallarta. The place is a three rocks formation to the south side of the bay on the way to Mismaloya. Arches are indeed present, and swimming through these natural tunnels is a must do! This place has a beautiful scenery above and under water and is filled with an incredible biodiversity (fish, reptiles and birds). One of the deepest points of the bay, called the Devil’s Canyon, is there and it’s great for diving. Los Arcos is a protected area and no anchoring nor fishing is allowed nearby. Different species of marine life enjoy the safety and productivity of the waters. You might spot some angelfish, sergeant majors, damselfish, rainbow, gobies, eels, star fish, puffers, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, giant manta rays, and many more....

    Thank you Trip Advisor for helping me make the perfect selection for a snorkeling adventure. I already clearly knew what I did NOT want: A large, loud, boozy party boat (with dancing deck hands) experience. I was looking for a small outfit that would take...More

    Thank you very much for your review. Indeed, we have wonderful snorkeling spots in Bahia de Banderas and having a private tour makes it much more personal with our guides that know a lot about the area. See you soon!
