The Southwestern coast of PR where this awesome place is, has a very different feel than other areas of P.R. Climate is drier, area is quieter, with plenty of local attractions & food, souvenir shops & plaza vendors. There are different places to choose from to arrange kayaking, snorkeling, boat, & scuba diving trips. There are a few hotels in the area, nothing too big or fancy though, keeping up that local charm. Once known for one of the only places to have a Bio luminescent bay, which used to be even more amazing 30 years ago, with the non stop traffic of visitors and vessels, seems to be mostly disappointing now; unless you've never experienced it before and a itty bitty glow will excite you. However in comparison with the other 2 on the island, it is sad it was not protected or better regulated to maintain this special phenomenon alive. You can rent small boats to take out to the smaller cays, man grovey islets off the coast, or you can check out the houses on the water. Mata La Gata is the most popular islet visited, where you can be taxied out to by boat for a few bucks, and it offers picnic tables, BBQ areas, & a dock/fenced in natural swimming pool. Unique to this area of P.R. with almost no tide changes or surf, are plenty of houses on the water, literally on the water, as in your drive way is meant for a boat not a car, and you can dive into the water from your front porch. At night time the town Plaza lights up with vendors, restaurants & bars, kiosk food, & live music.
