Los Arcos de Mismaloya

Puerto Vallarta

Diving enthusiasts must visit Los Arcos de Mismaloya Marine Park, a protected area where you can go diving in one of three spots: el Cañón del Diablo, el Bajo del Cristo and el Acuario. The ideal months for diving are between June and August, when visibility under water is optimal.

There is a fascinating world of species to be discovered around Los Arcos, ranging from colorful fish to sea turtles. What’s more, you will be able to observe one of the deepest trenches in the Pacific.

The rock formations found here however constitute much more than just a diving spot, they have actually become an icon on Puerto Vallarta’s sea horizon. If you choose to explore them, you can do so by taking a boat from the bay, or by panga (a kind of fishing vessel) from Los Muertos pier. Once you are in the park, you can snorkel, swim or try your hand at Stand Up Paddle-boarding.
