Los Arcos gets its name from the two arches that divers can explore. It also has a wall section, which is 5m/15ft high that is covered by hard corals, sponges and sea fans. The sandy area is home for turtles and stingrays. When the water is colder it is common to see bull sharks and if you are very lucky, you might see whale sharks, mantas and large mammals passing this place on their migratory travels.

Named after its two arches, Los Arcos is a relatively deep dive. The wall sections are 5m (15 ft) in height and are covered with hard corals, sponges and fan corals. On the sandy areas the diver can find turtles, groupers and stingrays. The arches shelter schools of fish, moray eels and many Crustaceans.

On days with good visibility, you can see the reef from the surface. Jump into the water at the southern end of the reef and enjoy the free descent in blue water to the bottom of the reef. Moving north beside the wall, it is worth to examine the reef in detail. Swim above the reefs’ plateau when nearing your no decompression limit and from there start your ascent. Because of its often strong currents, Los Arcos is recommended for advanced divers.
