Bioluminescent Bay, Fajardo
(3.5/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at an unusual natural phenomenon at Bioluminescent Bay, one of the only locations in the world home to the glowing organisms. The creatures themselves, a type of plankton, emit a glow when disturbed or touched. Join an excursion offered by one of the many tour companies in the area, and you'll make your way through the darkness to the lagoon, passing through mangrove swamps along the way. Keep in mind that conditions may not always be ideal for viewing the glowing critters, and you'll need a reservation with a tour group in order to visit. Using our online itinerary creator, Fajardo attractions like Bioluminescent Bay can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

They sold us the Hilton Caribbean tour and don't care that it does not then told us in another hotel that this Bay is contaminated long ago and just they are making to restore the fauna, but are seen approximately 30% of what was before should consider that it must enter rowing 1.5 km kayaking and is heavy , although the sight of the stars arriving at the Bay is priceless
