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. Before you head to Isla de Vieques, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Isla de Vieques tour itinerary tool , to make sure you see all that Isla de Vieques has to offer, including Bioluminescent Mosquito Bay.
