We actually snorkeled to the arches but I'd recommend a boat tour for this, or Scuba. Lot's of exotic sea creatures to see.

You can get a nice day trip including beverages, alcoholic beverages lunch and snorkeling gear for around $60 us. Try Vallarta adventures. Hope this helps!

We paid $30 a person and stayed at the Grand Fiesta Americana which isn't too far. We purchased our boat ride from a vendor on the beach.

I went to the site with PV Ocean Tours (Marc and Alun), they are located very close to Los Arcos.
