The entire south shore of Banderas Bay, south of Puerto Vallarta, is excellent for snorkeling, as the Sierra Madre Mountains extend directly into the ocean, creating the rocky shores that provide protection and habitat for tropical fish, spotted eagle rays, and other marine life.
One can literally pick a spot, hop off the boat, and encounter a ton of tropical life, feeding in the shallow waters. The best snorkeling on this fertile south shore is the protected cove of Majahuitas. The shallow and protected reefs offer a great day of snorkeling for all levels. Keep an eye out for spotted eagle rays, stingrays and sea turtles, all frequent visitors to Majahuitas.

Majahuitas is not a marine preserve like Los Arcos but it is much less visited, so you'll often be the only group snorkeling there, whereas at Los Arcos there can be several boats snorkeling at the same time. You'll also have a longer boat ride, which is a nice way to get some photos of the coastline and city skyline.
