Amazing experience. We were picked up at our Airbnb & driven here in the dark. Twelve people total. Van parked & we were lead directly to a waiting boat. A fifteen minute ride & the phosphorus lights began to appear in the wake of the...More
We went on a moonless, star lit night. Just being out on the water under all those stars was worth it. The water was quite warm and the bioluminescence was just so beautiful. Well worth the trip. We just booked from a place on the...More
Swim in glowing water! Just make sure to go when the moonlight is at a minimum (or go on a cloudy night). And don't be afraid to jump in and go swimming. It's the only way to get the best out of the experience.
The key is to go during a dark night, so try to plan for a new moon. Basically a boat takes you out into the lagoon at night where you swim for an hour or so, and every single move you make in the water...More
My friends and i went to see the luminescent plankton, and i can truly say it has been one of the most amazing experience I've had. We swam in the lagoon at night, and everything would glow. Very very recommended.

I would recommend goofing as late as possible as the darker it is the more bioluminescence will show. Also if your Spanish is good you can go straight to the lagoon and deal the price there as it will be way cheaper than if you book in advance or in town also the winter months are the best since is usually very cloudy so the moon light doesn’t go thru and the plankton lights up even more
You can check the lunar calendar to see where your trip falls during the moon cycle. I can not recommend a bioluminescent tour when there is a lot of moonlight, but during the darker 1/2 of the month, others have said it is... More
You can check the lunar calendar to see where your trip falls during the moon cycle. I can not recommend a bioluminescent tour when there is a lot of moonlight, but during the darker 1/2 of the month, others have said it is enjoyable. Check also the temperature for comfort because this also involved getting into the water at night.
