After 4 days in San Juan, we moved to Ponce to stay away from the christmas tourist crowd. We are glad we did. This is the bio-bay where you can swim in after a short trip on a motor boat. Near by Bahia Sucia beach (Caba Rojo) is breathtaking. Great food at Turru mote restaurant at the local yatch club.

If you go to la Parguera don't stay on the shore, pay a local captain (recommend small boats on muelle Escondido area next to Parador Villa Parguera) , explore the channels, the bay during day light and night time. Kayaking on the Bioluminiscent bay was a check off my bucket list. Snorkeling, swimming in pristine Caribbean Sea water, explore the... More

La Parguera is a fishing town located in Lajas Puerto Rico. It's a site definitely worth seeing if you are ever by the island. During the day, snorkeling is a great activity, the amount of sea weeds, urchins, fishes, corals, and many others that you can swim with and touch is astonishing. During the afternoon there are shops and restautants... More

On this trip to Puerto Rico, I visited areas that I had not been to before including one of the bioluminescent bays Puerto Rico is famous for. Had heard and read that the one at La Parquera had been degraded substantially, but had to see for myself. Came down from a couple of days in Rincon and stayed one night... More

This experience was perfect. We went on a boat with some friends finding lots of other boats. You can share with other people while someone is sharing great music from one of the boats while you talk, have some drinks and enjoy the whole day in the sea. Perfect!

La Parguera and all the southwest of Puerto Rico is a hidden Paradise. The local governments do not promote the activities and the natural wonder of this area. Definitely the Bio Bay is one of the marvelous things to enjoy. This Bio Bay you are allowed to swim and enjoy the warm water. I was reading few reviews saying that... More

I recently decided to take my children to see the bioluminescent bay in La Parguera and I must say the experience was a little sad for me. I remember when I was a child and how amazing the bioluminescence was. It extended from the bay itself all the way to the other side of the mangrove islands, even past the... More

We were looking for a trip to a Bio Bay on a Sunday in September. Our guide, Robert Moreno @ Borikua Tours 787-403-5581, contacted us and setup the whole thing from San Juan to La Paguera and back. We were fed at a little cafe right across from the plaza on 304. The food was great! Robert then escorted us... More

I booked a trip with Puerto Rico Eco Tours and couldn't be more pleased. Not only did they help me find a last minute hotel room in town, but the tour was excellent. The experience was akin to having sparks drip off of you or fireflies appear out of nowhere.
