Stay at the water’s edge in a classic Mexican beach town at Los Arcos. Set on the turquoise waters of the Bay of Banderas just outside the village of Mismaloya, this oceanfront vacation rental commands beautiful views of the rock formations for which it’s named. Six bedrooms and interiors designed to emphasize well-being are the perfect setting for a family reunion, a milestone celebration with friends or even an intimate Puerto Vallarta destination wedding.
Your holiday at Los Arcos includes the services of a cook, butler, housekeeper and property manager. Spend your time rejuvenating body and spirit on the terrace overlooking the ocean, whether it’s floating in the heated infinity pool or sipping refreshments at the al-fresco dining table. There’s an exercise room for guests who want to keep up with their routines—and a home theater and blender for those more interested in relaxing.
Listen to the waves lapping at the shore and bask in the afternoon sun in open-plan, open-sided living areas. The airy vibe of the living and dining areas is balanced by elegant pieces like plush area rugs and wrought-iron light fixtures. In the kitchen, a stone countertop extends to create a large, inviting breakfast bar.
This luxury property has five bedrooms with king beds, including one that features traditional wooden shutters so there are no screens or glass between you and your surroundings, and one bedroom with a queen bed. All six bedrooms have private en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning and ceiling fans.
A long flight of stairs leads from Los Arcos down to an ocean-level sundeck, where you can try your luck fishing or set off on a kayaking expedition. For swimming or a honeymoon-style stroll on the sand, make the 20-minute walk to Mismaloya Beach. By car, it’s a 15-minute drive to shopping, dining, nightlife and more in downtown Puerto Vallarta.

Puerto Vallarta lies along Banderas Bay, the second largest bay in the Western Hemisphere. It is located 352 kilometers (219 miles) from Guadalajara, the state capital of Jalisco, and is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range. The region has many forests, rivers and waterfalls, with an average temperature of 27°C (80°F).
Playa Mismaloya, gained fame from the film "The Night of the Iguana", and became a popular celebrity hangout at the time. Now, visitors flock to see the impressive rock formations of Los Arcos emerge from the bay's crystalline waters, which are great for diving and discovering incredible underwater mountains and steeps. The City Hall has murals painted by Manuel Lepe, and the Malecon (sea wall) is adorned with romantic bronze sculptures. What’s more, the streets of downtown offer shops and galleries that sell local paintings and sculptures of local artists. The city, known for its top-notch services, also has golf courses, boutiques and a marina.
In Puerto Vallarta you can enjoy the exquisite regional cuisine of Jalisco, that so many people have come to love, and the terraces of open-air restaurants, where you can watch cruise ships roll in as you take in an incredible sunset.
Sport fishing is just one of many activities you can do during your stay in Puerto Vallarta. Each year, during the month of November, the International Sailfish Fishing Tournament takes place. Other activities available in this region are eco-tourism, extreme sports, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, boating, golfing and nightlife.
