Fodor's Expert Review Los Arcos

Southern Banderas Bay Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Los Arcos. Protected area Los Arcos is an offshore group of giant rocks rising some 65 feet above the water, making the area great for snorkeling and diving. For reasonable fees, local men along the road to Mismaloya Beach run diving, snorkeling, fishing, and boat trips here and as far north as Punta Mita and Las Marietas or the beach villages of Cabo Corrientes. Recommended for all of these trips is Mismaloya Divers, with 23-foot skiffs and new, 75-horsepower, four-stroke motors. Restaurants and fishermen at Playa Mismaloya can also set you up. South of Puerto Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. 322/224-1175.
