La Parguera, Puerto Rico

(3.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
A glowing bay filled with twinkling water, surrounded by charming inns and dwellings, La Parguera dazzles at nighttime. The water at one of the world’s few bioluminescent bays thrives with dinoflagellates, which light up when disturbed, creating a captivating aquatic light show. Boat trips out to the bay allow you to see the sparkle up close. Alternatively, you can stay on the shore of the fishing village, where you can look out, beer in hand, and admire thr rare spectacle. While the phenomenon takes place every night, it's best observed on a moonless night. During the day, meet friendly locals, embark on some great hikes nearby, go bird-watching, or enjoy a popular selection of water sports. Put La Parguera into our La Parguera travel itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
