Los Arcos offers more diversity of tropical life than any other site in the entire bay. Los Arcos is a National Reserve that is protected by the Mexican government, which explains the large population of tropical life. If you are looking for a great and relaxing shallow dive that is sure to provide a ton of sea life, then Los Arcos should be considered.

Within swimming distance of the reef there is a wall, which sharply falls to 800 feet. The beginning of the drop starts at 60 feet giving experienced divers a great wall dive, combined with the deep blue abyss that lies below. At night, Los Arcos is another great option for certified divers. On the menu for the evening is a one-tank dive over the shallow reefs, providing unforgettable encounters with the nocturnal sea life. Discover the most amazing creatures and its rare behaviors that come out at a night dive.

Los Arcos is the most popular dive site in Puerto Vallarta, excellent for all levels, from novice divers, to advanced divers. This national marine park consists of four rocks or islets, shallows and a deep sea canyon. The dives in this area can be enjoyed from 10 to 90 feet. The view from the wall into the canyon exceeds 1500 feet of depth. This site is characterized by its great variety of fish, turtles and numerous other sea creatures. It is located at a short 30 minute boat ride from Marina Vallarta.

Name: pvscuba

Los Arcos, the most popular Puerto Vallarta scuba destination, boasts its largest and most exiting rock formations at depths ranging from 8 to 20 meters. Explore the shelf and visit Devil's Canyon with its 550 meter drop.

Mid-day, Los Arcos hosts enormous schools of king angels and sergeant majors. For diving at Los Arcos without the crowds, certified divers can try a night dive. Hang-out with lobsters, moray eels and octopus in their bioluminescent playground. Since it is a protected underwater national park, souvenir collecting and fishing are prohibited and the laws are strictly enforced.
