Los Arcos, Puerto Vallarta

(4.1/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Head beneath the water at Los Arcos, a scenic coastal area with an abundant marine environment and interesting geological features. Stretch out on the sandy beach and admire the caves and arches of the limestone islands out in the bay. Consider taking a tour boat out to the islands to explore what lies beneath. Many companies arrange diving, snorkeling, and swimming experiences, where you get to see sea turtles, schools of colorful fish, and the naturally sculpted arches and caves up close. Put Los Arcos at the forefront of your travel plans using our Puerto Vallarta trip generator.

  • Most go by boat. Perhaps too many snorkelers during parts of the day. Can also get to area easily by bus although you will view Los Arcos from more of a distance.  more »
  • a wonderful location and very quiet and crystal clear waters there are cheap tours that include transportation, open bar and food that you can hire in offices on the main avenue or in the marina directly
