Los Arcos is a beautiful advanced dive site situated at the beginning of the Gulf of Papagayo, Costa Rica, and is part of our Bat Islands (Isla Murcielagos) dive package. There are three underwater arches at this site and are full of life due to the currents passing through the arches. It is quite common to find turtles and nurse sharks resting on the sandy bottom. I took this video during one of our dives on January 29th, 2020.
January is normally not the time of year to visit Isla Murcielagos because of the Papagayo winds. The best time to visit this area is May through September. However, we are always paying attention to the weather and if the conditions permit…we will make the trip…and this day was one of those exceptions.
We only offer private and semi private charters…for the best experience possible. With over twenty years experience in the Papagayo.
