We thought we were in the wrong place! Tiny little bay town with lots of open air eating establishments, impossible parking, signs about food everywhere but unclear as to where one boards the boats. Just drive towards the water and ask around. There were 2 places where you could buy tickets. One has a large glass bottom boat that sits... More

We visited La Parguera with our Adult children and grandchildren. We had dinner in a restaurant, toured the town and took a boat trip ($8.00) to the bioluminescent bay. The boat trip was very relaxing and beautiful. Everyone enjoyed shopping for little things. Be sure to get there in plenty of time to sign up for the boat tour and... More

I called Paradise Tours, which was recommended, but they were booked up that night. So, they recommended this local guy, Ismael. Wow. Nice guy. $120 for the tour, up to 6 people. I highly recommend this guy. He was so chill. He was great with my son. Priceless. He brought snorkels and we just swam around the boat for 20... More

The bioluminescent bay was my favorite thing we did on our trip to PR. We did a tour with Paradise Divers, which was a reasonably priced company. The bio bay is one of the last you can still swim in (at least in PR), and swimming in it is a must do. I don't think you'd get the same experience... More

My husband whose family is from Puerto Rico took me here this past visit. We went for the bio luminescent bay experience so it was late and night and extremely dark. I argued with him the entire way because the route we took, took us through residential neighborhoods the did not seem remotely close to water. And then...TA DAH! we... More

They are working on the area, so you will find alot of detours and construction. When it is done it will be a very nice little town. Town is known for their fishing.
