Located south of the city these imposing natural formations of the bay are considered since 1984 as a National Marine Park of the Arches or simply called “Los Arcos”; they have a totally virginal beauty where there are deep tunnels, caves, arches and breathtaking reefs. Besides being one of the sites protected by the Mexican government for the reproduction of different seabirds also fishing is banned around an area of 30 hectares.
There are five islets with heights between 5 and 50 meters above sea level. Three of them have to form a natural arch, the largest rock has a tunnel of 25 meters high, is the favorite place for snorkeling and diving. At any time of year you can see an endless number of colorful fish, turtles, stingrays, octopus, lobsters, eels, etc.
