Los Arcos, Majahuitas, Yelapa

Golden beaches, waving palm trees, transparent water and a friendly relaxing atmosphere in Yelapa. This is your absolute tropical paradise experience you are dreaming of!

 

Oceano Adventures gives you the opportunity to enjoy all of this by taking you on a personalized boat excursion for one whole day. We make 2 stops, one in los Arcos and one in Majahuitas to let you discover these jewels of underwater sea life.

Los Arcos

Los Arcos is the deepest point of the whole bay of Banderas and a protected area because of its wide variety of fishes and sea birds. With its caves and tunnels it forms a unique piece of nature that is definitely worth to explore.

Temperature of the water

May – Dec: 78 – 89° F/25 – 31°C

Jan – April: 65 – 75° F/18 – 23°C

Average visibility: 60 ft/18 m

Depth: 30-120 ft/9-39.6 m

Majahuitas

Majahuitas beach is on just a 10 km more South-west of los Arcos and only accessible by boat. Thanks to its natural reef it offers shelter to lots of tropical colored fishes as well as turtles, octopuses, eels and mantarays. With the view of palmtrees and almost virgin beaches at quiet waters you will find a place perfect for snorkeling, diving or a relaxed bath in the sun.

Yelapa

Yelapa is a tiny village located at the most southern point of bay of Banderas and doesn't have any cars as the road stops a couple of km before the village.

 

It is only reachable by boat and with its calm bay of transparent water you´ll find an oasis of peace and tranquility.

 

Possibility to horseback riding, paddleboarding (SUP), or just sitting on the beach with a refreshing margarita.

Activity details

 

Our tour starts directly at the harbor of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle; we meet each other at 9 am at our boat and once packed and ready we set off to the mighty ocean.

 

Optional: we meet each other at our office in downtown Sayulita where we take you in our shuttle to La Cruz de Huanacaxtle.

 

You will be welcomed on the boat by our guide who will introduce you in the marine life of Banderas. We let you enjoy a 40 min boat ride while we cross the Bay.  Our first stop will be at Los Arcos where you will get the opportunity to dive (1 tank) or snorkel for about 1 hour.

 

Next stop will be in Majahuitas where we will go ashore to the beach. You will also get the option to dive or snorkel here as well (1 hour). We all know that nature gets you hungry, and after all this activity we anchor at Yelapa to get you served a delicious local lunch included in our service. No hurry up needed in this piece of paradise, in here we take a longer stop for about 4 hours.

 

Yelapa is a beautiful spot you cannot leave unexplored; together with our guide you will make a short walk upwards the hill to find in the forest the hidden Yelapa waterfall.

 

Once back at the beach we give you the chance to discover Yelapa yourself; you either might go horsebackriding, paddleboarding (SUP) with the local suppliers or you might go diving or snorkeling with us for the remaining time. Our guide will stay at your disposal for any question or information.

 

We meet again at 5 pm at the boat to head back towards La Cruz.
