All you need to know
Los Arcos, declared a Refuge Zone for the Protection of Marine Flora and Fauna in 1975 by the then Ministry of Industry and Commerce, is one of the most amazing places in the Bahia (bay) de Banderas has to offer. Great spot for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding and taking lots of pictures! Home to a large variety of tropical sea life and endemic birds and ducks.
One of the best beaches in Puerto Vallarta is Colomitos, a short stretch of sand with legendary beauty. No roads lead to this hidden gem. Only accessible by boat or hiking from Boca de Tomatlan (45min). Considered one of the most beautiful and smallest beaches in the Bay.
“Las Animas”, is a beautiful beach in the Southern zone of Puerto Vallarta.
It is the first stop water taxis make (locally called “pangas”) on the way West in the southern section of the Banderas Bay. Its relatively close location makes it a very popular stop and luckily both the natural setting, the beach and the sea make it a beautiful experience. Great stop for getting some amazing seafood.
