“Paradise found”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

As a native Parguereno, l always find time to visit my island and go directly to my home town. I grew up inLa Parguera and saw it developed from a lovely fishing village where everybody knew and helped each other to an enchanting township known worldwide. We are friendly to everyonevwho visits us and always try to give them the best we can offer. We have all the water sports there are. Come and find out why we are that good,

“Nice place to experience local life”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

There are various small shops, bars and eateries. When visiting I recommend you take a boat to the bioluminescent bay, which is a rare attraction and one of the few in the world. Take the smaller boats to the bay, they are cheaper and you spend more time out on the bay. Our boat diver took one of the the glowing organisms and brought it to the boat in a bucket of water. The kids were pretty excited to see it and feel it. Great place to relax with the family and experience local life.

“Honky tonk town”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Came here to spend the evening prior to taking the cruise to see the bioluminescent features of the bay. Got there at 5PM for 8PM cruise - it was pure touristy, tacky honky tonk town (picture a sleazy Coney Island). One decent restaurant - rest are loud bar/eateries. It was the longest three hour wait ever. And the two hours on the boat (one of which was waiting at the dock for them to fill the boat) was not even worth the $8 paid for the tour. The attraction consisted of ten minutes of watching some guy jump off the boat to stir up the biolumenescence for a mere five minutes!! The rest of the boat ride was dark, and accompanied by blasting techno music!! Don't waste your time!!

“Not a Poor Town”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Contrary to popular belief La Parguera is neither rich nor poor. Most of the residents have lived in this tourist village for well over 60 years and take pride in it. We take care of it and we can also say that as far as crime is concerned we are not plagued by it either. Naturally on Mondays and Tuesdays a lot of the establishments are closed because most work outside of the village. But when u come to visit u have the best and most wonderful time.

Go to Aquaviva Ceviche Spoon Bar. So good! Rent a Kayak and explore the keys. I rented mine from Ishmael at iLeya. Very knowledgable guy.
