LOS ARCOS, UNDERWATER NATIONAL PARK.

One of Mexico´s most popular marine reserves,Group of three small islands with arches and caves that have been sculpted by the force of the ocean over thousands of years and this Underwater National Park has been rightfully named Los Arcos (The Arches). From the main arch, where depths range from 25 to 60 feet, a shelf takes you to the edge of Devil’s Canyon. Dropping an awesome 1800 feet, this wall marks the beginning of the continental platform. The endangered Blue Footed Boobie birds thrive on these islands, besides here, they are only found in the " Sea of Cortez" and "Galapagos" Islands. This is a magical dive and it is here that divers can experience the feeling of the "abyss", abundant tropical fish, with some luck sea turtles and often giant mantas.
