Tons of colorful fish. Easy to get to from Mismouyasa. We snorkeled which can be limiting since you cant go as close to the rock. I can see scuba divers seeing more. Something anyone who likes snorkeling and is in the PV area should do. If you get the boats by Barcelo, can go out for about 200 pesos each.... More

We took our 8 year old daughter and had a blast! We didn't pre-schedule this excursion. We met with beach vendors and only paid $100 dollars for all of us and we had approximately 2 hours to boat and snorkel. Saw amazing sights and wonderful fish. This is a must do- especially for younger children. Great time and we would... More

Excursion set up by Vallarta Adventures. Vis 30' and temp 82F at 84' depth. Lots of turtles, small rays, trumpet and box fish, snake fish, angels, etc. Very little vegetation. Good organisation on board despite the limited space. A bit on the expensive side @ 98USD for 2 tanks (88$/1 tank), but we were happy with the excursion!

Fish galore along with an abundance of other aquatic life. This was a hoot. A fairly strong current though depending where you dive.

This is a place that photos can't do justice. Getting up close to the formations you realize how large they are. Lots of birds to see. I loved how the waves hit them. Water is clear for this area so it makes for decent snorkeling.

Went on a party boat to Los Arcos and enjoyed snorkeling. It was a bit wavy, but with a life jacket you will be just fine.

This scenic and majestic rock is a busy spot for boats and kayaks. We drove on the highway and stopped by to the vista point to appreciate the beauty of this famous marine park in Puerto Vallarta. It's a protected area so it attracts snorkelers and scuba divers and also boat tours. We did not get to enjoy these options... More
