Scuba Diving & Snorkeling - For divers of all levels, the waters around Puerto Vallarta offer an endless amount of underwater adventure. Although diving and snorkeling are good all year round, summer months offer warmer and calmer waters with the best chance of good visibility (80 to 120 feet on a good day). Advanced divers will love El Morro Islands and the Marietas Islands area near Punta de Mita where lava tubes and caves are abundant. Snorkeling is excellent in the Marietas Islands as well. Also look into the underwater preserve surrounding Los Arcos (a rock formation off Playa Mismaloya). Photo courtesy of Chico's Dive Shop. Chico's Dive Shop Tel: 322/222-1895 w ww.chicos-diveshop.
