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.

This place may be the spring-board into a world of bioluminescence, but buyer be aware of what exactly you are getting yourself into. On arrival you will be hassled by people wanting to take you to a tour operator (at no cost to you). Watch what you sign up for: booze cruise with music and "4 bathrooms" to "private tour... More

Nice, happy place, Moon Restaurant is the best. Friends Cafe has the best coffee frappes that are better than starbucks! I would go again, only in the day to tour the islands and snorkel. We went at night and the bio bay wasn't too lighted, and it was a very short ride. The fajardo city bio bay lights up much... More

The newly added and renovated plaza area offers visitor a great place to mingle with locals, enjoy the vistas, and have great food within a close walking distance. Everything is close at hand and walkable. Still has a small easy fishing village atmosphere with a lot of peaceful afternoons, expect for weekends and holidays when locals gather. Rental motorboats, kayaks,... More
