Why Scuba Dive at Los Arcos
Los Arcos National Marine Park (or Los Arcos de Mismaloya) is located between two beaches, Mismaloya Beach and Las Gemelas. The waters here are some of the deepest in Banderas Bay and their depths conceal deep tunnels, caves, arches, teeming marine life like rays and sea turtles and a thriving reef. Los Arcos is particularly famous for its brilliantly colored nudibranchs and the other small creatures who call the rocky underwater slopes home.
