Over the past several years, La Parguera has been making incremental improvements to its plaza, restaurant and vendor booth areas. There is a lively buzz all around the town during the day. Night life on weekends and holidays is both vibrant and family friendly. This past Christmas evening there was an exceptional band on the plaza’s stage that had people... More

I stayed with the family for a couple of days and noticed a lot of progress on the parking space, the attractions, the night tourism, Kayaking, scuba diving, and more.

The boat tours are worth the 10.00 you get to see fishes touch a star fish and see the small islands and beautiful waters. The food and drinks are okay some places are pricey. But they are great places with great prices so look around 1st. The ferry to the fluorescent bay at night for 10.00 is not worth it!... More

My family and I took a night time tour on the glass bottom boat on a new moon and it was very interesting. Although you cannot go in the water yourself, you watch a person swim and have the dinoflagellates light up. They also bring water on board to splash in. Make sure to wear a jacket as it is... More

I took a group of 16 students from a south Georgia high school on this trip. One of their favorite parts was snorkeling here. I consider this an experience of a lifetime and everyone was so nice. We also loved the Bio Bay there. The moon was full so we couldn't see the glow as easily, so pick a dark... More

La parguera is a location to come with time and plans. Theres so many things to do you will run out of time quickly. Paddle boarding and snorkeling is a must. If you go to the front desk of the hotels typically you can find the best references for charter boat rides or snorkeling locations. Most of the time they... More

Wait time was crazy, you get cut off by larger groups who decides to come at different times but still gets call all at once cutting off people who arrived earlier. They should used a microphone or talk louder so people can hear them when they called the numbers. Must of the afternoon lost because of the wait time.
