From the first time I saw Los Arcos, I knew that I wanted to swim, snorkel, paddle board, or kayak there. I didn’t care which one. I just knew that I wanted to get in the amazing crystal clear blue water and enjoy the beauty of the rocks rising up out of the ocean.
It did not disappoint!
Do you see the turtle?
How about now?
We saw lots of different kinds of fish and birds and even spotted a Blue Footed Booby. Thanks to our guide for helping us find the hidden birds and identify them and some fish too.
The caves have a very distinct smell – maybe it’s the bats that live in there. Even though it’s dark inside, you can still see into the water. Outside the caves, you can see all the way to the bottom.
We loved our time here. I suggest going early in the morning before the snorkeling boats show up and the water gets choppy.
Such a cool tour. Would definitely do it again.
We booked this trip through Estigo Tours but the company that took us out was Paddle Zone located in Mismaloya. Our tour was just the 3 of us, my husband, our guide, and me. Our guide was very knowledgable and friendly. We stayed out about 2 – 3 hours or so. It was a good amount of time. We swam and snorkeled too. Would definitely recommend.
Paddle Zone is a little hard to find on the hillside so pay attention closely to the directions. It’s worth it. Be sure to sign their guest surf board.
Here is my review. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g1015495-d11824250-r534191735-Paddle_Zone-Mismaloya.html
It’s a 5 star!
