“Too many people but best spot in the bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

You want to see fish? Go here. No other snorkeling or scuba diving spot in the bay compares and it's close. I've taken boats, swum off the shore, every time is a great time.

“Take the Ruta 2 bus to Mismaloya and see out the window”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Take a bus ride to the Botanical Gardens or Mismaloya for the day and pass by the Los Arcos or rent a car or take a booze cruise and see them. They are pretty. You can snorkel there and the water is clear !! can feed the fish too ! safe !

“The Horned Bull Lovingly Named By Some Locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Los Arcos is a beautiful rock area off the coast in Puerto Vallarta. It is home to countless pelicans and other birds. The snorkelling is beyond belief with a stellar variety of fish and water wildlife to see.
