Bioluminescent (Mosquito) Bay, Isla de Vieques

Witness one of the natural world's most magical spectacles at Bioluminescent (Mosquito) Bay. Row out into the water as tiny life forms erupt with light in the churning wake of your paddles. Take a guided tour of the lake to find out about the incredible natural science behind this beautiful occurrence, known as bioluminescence. It's worth noting the phase of the moon before you go; a full moon diminishes the intensity of the glow somewhat, but it shouldn't make the experience any less astounding.

  • Is not found in the praise of the words to tell how high this experience tough. Just huge! We used the Taino aqua sports ' transparent kayaks and a strong recommendation. We saw how the sharks were chasing smaller fish in that magnificent light show. The rays walked along the Bay. Absolutely stunning!! The mosquitoes are not disturbed by the US at the beginning of November, at all. Photos from dinoflagmanteista, not so concentrate on and enjoy!
