Los Arcos is a Beautiful deep dive with a wall to the right and to the left and some nice arches. The walls are covered with hard corals, sponges and some soft corals. While on the dive it is possible to drift with the current and see turtles, great barracudas, stingrays and schools of mackerel. The arches provide shelter to schools of fish, moray eels and many crustaceans. In the winter it is sometimes possible to see bull sharks and other large pelagics. Because of the depth and often strong currents, the dive is more suitable for experienced divers. The maximum depth of the site is 30m/100ft, visibility is more than 30m/98ft.
