4.1
#1 of 28 in Nature in Jalisco
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. Use our Puerto Vallarta online road trip planner to add Los Arcos and other attractions to your Puerto Vallarta vacation plans.
