Scout the famos Los Arcos with us on this 4 hours snorkeling trip
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 or 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 much more.

A Recent Review of this tour

Thalia was a great guide with really interesting information to share. She was able to answer our questions about the marine life as well as the region. We were a group of four adults, two of whom are uneasy in the water, but we all felt confident with Thalia's ability to keep us safe and sound. For not much more than the cost of a cruise-ship sponsored tour, we had the boat and guide to ourselves - money well spent.
