Los Arcos Marine Park

Los Arcos Marine Park (not to be confused with Los Arcos on the Malecon boardwalk) is also know as Los Arcos de Mismaloy (The Arches of Mismaloya).  These small granite islands look like rocky icebergs just off the shore of Mismaloya, a town just south of the well-known La Zona Romantic neighborhood.

Since 1984, this marine park has  been a favorite with locals and tourists alike. There are daily tours and boats that take visitors on snorkeling and diving adventures where they can explore deep caves and a striking reef.  The reef itself is home to a variety of tropical fish, manta rays, sea turtles, and various other marine life. Not only is it an officially designated marine park, the rocky islands are a breeding sanctuary for penguins, parrots, pelicans and other see and land birds.

One claim to fame that Los Arcos has is that the small islands make their cameo in the movie, “The Night of the Iguana” a 1964 film produced by director, screenwriter, and actor, John Houston.
